    Critical Hits/Hornet Ring

    Post by Gaxe on Sat Aug 04, 2012 5:28 pm

    Ok so after looking up some things about critical hits it turns out there not just ripostes and backstabs. I always thought that they were just backstabs and ripostes. So does this mean that the hornets ring will count for the non backstab/riposte critical hits? I'd like to test this it interests me, would anyone be willing to be my test dummy ;D

    I'm pretty sure the non backstab/riposte criticals are the counters, which are boosted by the leo ring.

    Yep, leo ring is what boosts the counter damage for thrust attacks. Though, I'm not sure about falling attacks, that might count as a critical. I'm unsure.

    Wiki:

    Critical Strikes



    Critical strikes are strikes which deal much higher damage based on your equipped weapon's critical rate. The better the rate, the more damage will be done upon a critical strike. Critical strikes include backstabs and riposte. Critical Strikes work in the same way as other status ailments, the higher the critical rating on the weapon the faster the bar will fill up resulting in a critical hit upon being filled.
    Attacking an enemy at certain phase of their strike, greatly increases your chance to land a critical strike so look for those openings in slow strikes, and opportunities to cycle behind your enemy.

    This points to it not just being backstabs/ripostes sooo and the hornet rings says boosts critical damage by 40%. So tell me would it not boost those other critical hits?

    They are different types of critical attacks, something that should probably be added if it is on our wiki. Counters, then criticals. The counter is technically a critical strike, because of the damage. But it's a different mechanic.
