Personally what one would you choose?

It sound to me that +5% Crit will be better in the end?

How much dex = 1% crit... multiply by 5, that is how much dex increase you need to = 5% crit... now if that number is 15% dex, then multiply out to find out what your dex needs to be for 15% dex to = 5% crit increase... if you are under that, then get the 5% crit, if over then get the dex... respec as needed, and if you have the points, get both...

Unless you are asking is the 15% dex (which gives bonuses to crit, parry, dodge, etc) better than just a point blank bonus to crit... in that case, up to you... =) I prefer to have my bonuses to crit along with maxing out my dex...

That's slightly incorrect Arcshayde. The correct answer is going to be based on your level and/or DEX stat (which that calc may be based on your own).

I'v recorded the data for Crit from Level 30-40 on my Rogues and with an average DEX of 200 I always came up with:

1DEX=1 Crit =0.05% to crit (+/- .002%)

Admittedly, I didn't start recording the values until L30 so for comparison so I started a low level Rogue just to calculate some lower values and here is what I found @ level 7:

Level 7 w/ 28 DEX: 1DEX=1 Crit=0.3566% to crit (I had to re-check this like 3 times to make sure the calcs were correct too)

I did take care to make sure ONLY the DEX stat changed for the calculations and not the STR, AP, or Crit. No buffs.

So, at least for a lvl 30s Rogue 20Dex=1% to crit

If anyone has any further stats to fill in the blank levels here that would be helpful in actually determining the curve.Last edited by Lukahl; 03-26-2011 at 07:47 AM.

Unbuffed, 5% crit > 15% dex > 15% ap.

Raid Buffed, 15% ap > 15% dex > 5% crit.Last edited by Bonshee; 03-26-2011 at 07:45 AM.

I thought it was 22 dex to 1 crit not 27. So 5% crit using my low end numbers would be 110 dex. Is that 15% ever going to net you 110 dex?
