# Thread: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

1. ## Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

[Potentials] are there any calcs on the subject, I hear that critical % is better but up to what %age is it more beneficial?
also, I'm speaking for Ishtar mainly.

2. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

Increases in critical rate's effectiveness depends on your current % crit and min/max crit damage. I'm sure calculations have been done, but perhaps not for your situation specifically.

3. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

my situation would go
89% Critical w/ Decent Sharp Eyes

Would I rather get 100% Critical (12% Critical Potential) or more total damage/atk?

(this would be for my non-bossing arrow)

4. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

Did you add phantom critical link skill? Cause if you didnt, I'd go for the total dmg.

6. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

Decent SE is +20% max crit, right?

89% chance of +35%-70% more damage. Multiplier = 1+(0.89*(0.35+0.7)/2) = 1.46725
100% chance of +35%-70% more damage. Multiplier = 1+(1.00*(0.35+0.7)/2) = 1.525

% damage increase = 1.525 / 1.46725 = 1.03935 = +3.94% more damage.

The skill you use it with doesn't matter.

7. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

it's 15% more

also, to determine if attk is better, we'd need your attack increases (from pot)

also, gonna throw a question of my own, mercedes %dmg skills, how do they stack with %dmg potential?

8. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

well I'm trying to figure out what's better for 250k max range. still cubing.

and %dmg is applied after everything else, so I think of it more as +x% to all skills

9. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

just that i have heard that %damage stacks additively with mercedes skills, but i don't have one of those 89% bossing arrows to go and check math, so it's just a rumor for me.

10. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

I do have 100% boss and 9% total damage, anything I could do to help?

11. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

go to dojo or some boss that won't be a trouble and to which i know the PDR with your +%damage buffs, shoot regular shots at him (not skills prferably) and take some SS's of the damage (preferably non-crit.)

12. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

k, I'll up some later tonight with other info you need

13. ## Re: Mercedes: Critical % vs. Damage/ATK %?

if you can, just give me your buffed range without the skills that give you %damage, then when possible just give me the SS's
