All I see is a load of assumptions without any data or even any reasoning behind it. I don't agree with anything you said here, you're wrong.

For example find weakness is _ALWAYS_ more damage than lethality, even if you got 100% critrate on a 600 resil target. If you don't understand why this is, please read up on it instead of replying to this thread and questioning what I've said again. :P

No, you don't understand how the RED stacks, the data I posted is correct.

**Now about lethality again.**

It increase the critical damage of mutilates by 15%. Lets say 10% on resilience.

Since around 45% of your mutilates crit on resilience (42% base crit +15% punct wounds -12% resi)

— the overall damage increase

**for mutilate**is

**5%**

You're using the same flawed calculations here as the ones I questioned earlier in the thread, please re-read my previous posts and you might understand why what you just posted here is so wrong. (A tiny hint: stop saying things like "let's say" when doing math, and actually calculate the exact value instead)

And thats not even factoring FA which you will have 2/3 if you invest 3pts in FW.

IThere is no reason to build any assumption around the fact that all your mutilates crit because its simply not true but even if they somehow will crit added benefit from FA and FW contributing to envenom will easily outweight it. But again, it WONT chain crit 4 times in a row.

I hope thats enough maths for you.

What you just did here isn't math, it's random flawed assumptions backed up by more flawed assumptions, then you draw the wrong conclusion based on this and pat yourself on the back saying "I must be right" because your flawed logic and non-existant understanding of the game just "proved" that you're right.

I wonder why I even bother saying anything on these forums, so frustrating with clueless people questioning what you say even though they got no idea what they're talking about.

So are you saying that my calculations about mutilate damage increase with 5/5 lethality is wrong? Correct me then. What would it be?

Mutilate damage with 40% base crit on a target with 12% crit reduction with 5/5 lethality will increase by —

***your answer here***(vs 0/5 lethality obviously)

Also, you are right that i should use "lets say" less but i simply cant be arsed to use calculator for this. From what i can count in my head its somewhat around 5% to 7.5% damage increase for your mutilate. Both numbers doesnt look particularly exciting.

**Now to the gem part:**

To calculate approximate impact of this gem we need to determine how many of your attacks actually crit (including poisons etc). You have 50% crit which is 38% past resilience, that applies to everything but stab and ambush. Stab got 80% crit and judging by my recount is around 30% of your total damage on arena, 68% crit past resilience. So your average crit chance is (38% for 70% of your damage and 68% for 30% of your damage) is 48%. Lets make it 50%.

Now 50% of your damage is affected by this meta and increased by 3%. 3% for 50% damage is 1.5% for 100%. Show me how did you get your "higher then 2%". m, mr math genius?

Throwing insults doesnt make you look smart.

I havent seen any of your calculations yet though.

And stop referring to "your little tool".

This is bsht tbh. And here is why:

In my first post I explained that the meta isn't just a 3% damage increase on crits, because of how it double dips and scales with some talents, etc. Very simply put the RED meta turns the "2*normaldamage" calculations used for melee crits into 2*1.03*normaldamage, which in turn means that the actual damage is increased by 2*1.03 = 2.06 (ie, the same as 2 points in lethality).

The quick math I was talking about was just me throwing a very ugly (but accurate and pretty useful) perl script together with calculations based off of/borrowed from iDPS and DrDamage: http://pastebin.ca/1893132
