Currently at 45% Crit for my Ice spells.

I'd like to know if I missed anything that could make it even higher.

Breakdown of current sources:

+8% Enhancements ( Water Savant tree )
+20% from weapon.
+8% Feats ( Magical training, Mental Toughness, Imp. Mental Toughness, Epic Mental Toughness )
+9% Epic Past life toggle.
---
45%

Note: I am 2 monk/2 pally/ 16 Sorc, so the Elemental Water form for the extra 2% is out.

Looks about right - don't think you missed anything. The only way to get a higher Crit Chance is to go fire with 4 levels of FvS

FIRE ONLY:
+ 8% Fire Savant Enhancements
+ 8% Angel of Vengeance Enhancements
+ 8% Feats (Same as Above)
+ 20% Weapon
+9% Epic Past Life Toggle.

Currently I'm running with the 10% Faster casting Toggle, so I'm not sure if I'll run 3X more past lives in Arcane right away. I'm also only running with 18% from gear, but that's still 42% without the Epic Past Life toggle.

It makes me SMILE!!

Good point for a Fire Savant build :)

I gotta say I am also running 2 monk/2 pal/16 sorc and absolutely LOVE IT!

Don't forget the Tod sets. Testing is needed to verify, but I think the savant sets give a 2% artifact bonus to spell crit chance with their associated elements, and the archmage set gives 1% artifact bonus to crit chance for all spells.

Hell yeah, makes it hard to kill :)

I'm Bladeforged rather than Warforged, so as to have higher CHA and CON stats.

I forgot about ToD Sets, but yes, I believe they do stack as of U19.

I don't believe that I'd give up a Ring AND a Belt slot for 1%-2% Spell Critical though. (although I'd have to look into the new set bonuses fully since U19 changed them.)

hmmm, yeah, seems like an expensive trade off.

For your kind of build (Shiradi with Just Reward namely), 2% crit is probably worth the 2 slots. You can get away with removing Ring of Shadows for TOD Set ring and put the Con +9/Dodge+9 instead of your second ring, Ring of Deceit.

For any other DI Savant, TOD set is absolutely trash.
