Aka, it proves that crit damage is NEVER better than Armor pen
No thats not what i'm saying, assuming an attack did 100 damage
, and you made 100 attacks with armor
pen and ZERO crits against a target with 200 armor
your would do:
100 * 100 * (100/300-30) = 3703 Damage
Making the same 100 attacks with the base 200% crit damage
even 30% of the time
70 * 100 * (100/300) + 30 * 2 * 100 * (100/300) = 4333 Damage
Adding the crit runes
brings it to:
70 * 100 * (100/300) + 30* 2.66 * 100 * (100/300) = 4993 Damage
So, with normal attacks criting with armor
pen the balance point between the two is at around 33.24% Crit
And yes, Armor
Pen applies to crits that is assumed in the threshold table.
