I'm doing some work on greater essences being worse than the lesser counterparts. Gonna make a big post about it in a few days.

But so it's easy to figure out that Rushing Surge is equivalent to 34 AP and 22 crit. The issue is, I don't know how exactly that 34 AP and 22 crit translates into DPS. I need to be able to show that the 15 dps from Combusting Essence is less than you'd get from a Rushing Surge, for example.

The tooltip shows that 10AP=1 DPS to "physical abilities," but does that really mean I'm gaining 1 DPS across the board? How do I apply the crit, assuming I'm under the cap?

If you guys could help me out, I'd really appreciate it.
