    Default Saboteur: Physical Crit VS Attack Power?

    By the in-game definition, physical crit. only affects my weapon attacks. As a Saboteur the majority of my damage comes from my charges / bombs / heavy explosives etc. With this in mind, for Saboteur, does this mean that attack power is a more valuable stat than Physical Crit? I could understand why a melee DPS would prefer Physical Crit because most of his attacks are weapon attacks, but mine are not?

    The wording is misleading but crit is universal for you regardless the spec.


    With that being said you should still focus on atk power. The amount of crit that comes built in with dex + your talents will give you more than enough to be ok.

    Especially the sab being privy to the 15% increase in dex talent. I know my sab spec was one of the first to hit the crit cap cause of that talent alone.

    I admit crit is nice to have, but I learn things best on my own - low and behold it probably would have been smarter to aim for AP. I loaded up on crit, got more gear, approached the cap, and slowly turned over several item runes and essences for AP gains. Crit is nice to have for the journey, but by the time your reaching the end, you'll have saved yourself time if you put the trust in AP all along

    Crit effects everything in Sab, yes.

    If you're talking PVE, you should stack AP because with raid buffs you're going to hit the crit cap easily.

    If you're talking PVP, you ought to just stack crit.

    In PvE you stack AP
    In PvP you go 2:1 Crit:AP Ratio, but since most people wear pvp gear, you don't really have options there. I actually stack endurance in PvP.

    Well, yeah. I stack end in PVP as well (lol 12k HP mm/RS) I just meant take crit in lieu of AP. I only play mm and Sab, and AP is downright garbage for marksman*--it's almost nonexistent. It's not quite the same for Sab, but it's still pretty crap.

    MM scales pretty damn well with AP, i don't know where you keep getting this from.
