Optimal Crit Percentages

Running a crit damage build. Curious what an optimal percentage would be? I remember reading 41% is a good number to be above. Currently at 50.3% or 56% depending on sets. Would like to stay at 50.3% because necro provides more damage than war maiden.

Any feedback is appreciated!

    It is pretty consistent over time, like when running a parse on a dummy as to your percentage crits done matching your crit rate on the character sheet.

    That being said, I personally don't feel like I am in a Critical Chance build unless I have 70% to 80% Crit Chance. Then it seems like I get more than the crit rate in the shorter term fights. This is based on watching the flying numbers, where I dont really see a non crit hit.

    70 to 80% is also about the threshold of diminishing returns where it is better to invest in base damage, resource pool or regen as the case maybe for your build.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    Firstly, what is your Critical Damage Modifier? For say a Khajiit with high crit damage modifier, you would want as high you can go, without giving up Weapon damage or penetration.

    Yes, some build and race combos can hit 85% Crit with no real tradeoffs.

    A Khajiit Stamblade running DW is one that comes to mind.
