Should impen weapons counter Crit damage reduction?

I think there should be viable counter weights for every trait and currently impen is one that doesn't have such.

    Just change impen back to crit chance reduction instead of crit damage, then you have a direct counter. But I'm not sure if you really want that >:)

    Impen is the only effective mitigation option for PvP. It really smooths out incoming damage and is our only hope for survival in the burst meta. I like it as-is.

    The problem I have is full impend with cp reduces crits to lower than base dmg it's to much lol . The meta will catch up in a few weeks and everyone will become noodles.

    Game is already too burst-centric. We aren't lacking for damage-dealing options. Armor impen is one of the only things that even slightly mitigates the insane amount of critical damage dealt. I think it's good as-is. You have to give up other useful traits to use it... settling for lower stats, lesser Mundus effects, less Armor, et al.

    Trading existing weapon traits for a reverse Impen would not be as much of a sacrifice and would only make the game spazzier/burstier imo.

    It would be a % much like other traits like sharpened so reduce impen by say 10% nothing game breaking. My fault for lacking clarity.

    Only if the attacker has no or very little investment into critdmg. I have not been able to replicate crits being lower than normal hits on a target with 7 impen with "normal" cp allocation in critdmg.
