Without that, you're looking at a paltry 5% crit from the start, meaning those Avarice Blades that I ranted about might start becoming pretty appealing.
That said, you can certainly get away with non-crit seals and glyphs, just make sure you get the roughly 10% crit from marks.
As far as crit runes go, though, when I'm not playing Tryn I'm usually rock'n Twisted Fate, who also benefits greatly from +crit %. If you play him too, then that investment might actually be worth making.
Well I don't play TF, but I do play Mordekaiser and Pantheon often. I have a page set up for Mordekaiser, but magic pen won't work well with Trynd
. So, with 4% from the offensive Mastery, combined with roughly what? 6 or 7% from runes it'll put me at 10-11%. If I toss in a Crit Quint at some point, that should be a healthy 14% ish.
That's an easy swap from the Pantheon tree if I'm feeling... Tryndy
Also, if they add more rune pages, it'll be even easier.
