What effects NB Crit for class skills ?

angelohupb14_ESO
Does weapon crit effect class skills or spell crit? If weapon crit does then is spell crit useless? Thanks

    From what Ive read melee 'spells' use weapon crit, ranged 'spells' use spell crit.

    I believe that may be correct but I also think that the melee spells damage changes with base melee damage. I have confirmed this personally.

    This is not correct. Melee versus ranged doesn't determine the method. I will say that most of the abilities use weapon crit. It was described in another thread by saying that if it looks like you're attacking with a summoned weapon than it uses weapon crit, like Impale. Spells that actually look like spells use spell crit, like Strife.

    Veiled Strike, Teleport Strike,Death Stroke and their morphs -Crit Chance is given by weapon crit. The damage increases with magicka and they are mitigated by armor.That means two consecutive non critical Surprise attacks do slightly different damage due to armor reduction.
    Assassins Blade and morphs did not appear to ever crit when I tested it. Doesn't really need to though.

    Everything else is a Spell and needs spell crit.

    I thought if an ability uses magicka it's a spell and if it uses Stamina it uses weapon..
    If real life had a block function i would go out more.

    Proud to have spent a year paying to BETA test ESO for consoles.

    Sure would be nice if the tool tips showed how your stats affect your skills.
