View Full Version : Force or Force Critical Ritual

Hi folks,

I wondered which of the two weapon damage rituals are really better to use in the long term the Force or Force Critical? Does the Crit range of the weapon make a difference?

I am looking at doing the rituals for Rapiers (15-20 crit range) and Longsowrds (19-20 crit range) if there is a consensus as to which is more effective DPS wise to do.

Average for force crit it 2.5 dmg per crit - with rapiers 6/19 hits (1 misses, could be more if you don't have high atk) are crits, so 2.5 * 6/19 = .78 dmg per hit on a rapier. Other weapons are a lower crit rate and it's even less. Compare to force dmg ritual, 1 per hit. Force damage all the way - it has harder to get/more expensive collectibles to get though. Force crit is better than neither though.

Seconded. Force Damage wins.

Better force crit than neither, yeah. Especially with the damage ingredients being harder to get. On a rapier, the 15-20 crit range makes sure you crit a lot :D

I go force damage first, if I don't have the ingred on hand I'll put force crit on instead.
