    The Ring of the Gambler's effect is +10 Dexterity +5% Glancing Blow Chance, -10% Melee Critical Hit Reduction.

    So my question is about [+5% Glancing Blow Chance] this effect?

    1) I can avoid damage from mobs attack because +5% Glancing Blow Chance.

    or

    2) I will miss attack to fight mobs because +5% Glancing Blow Chance.

    1 or 2 ?

    Sorry about my english, is no good. :(

    Glancing blow is a glyph in the heavy armor tree. It adds to that glyph's skill.

    I believe it would be #1

    Since its displayed color is green its good for you...
    If i remember right the -10% melee critical hit reduction is displayed in red so that should be the negative part of this artifact.

    Glancing blow is not just a glyph in heavy armor tree. Glancing blow is what happens in light and heavy armor when their hit is avoided. Glancing blows cause 1/3rd of the attack damage to be applied.

    This ring increass the chance of getting that kind of glancing blow. It is independent of the glyph.

    The crit increase means that anything hitting you with physical damage (bows, swords, whatever) has a 10% increased chance of critical strike on you.

    This ring is meant to be used in a build focused around fortify defenses in my opinion.

    It was always my understanding that -10% Melee Critical Hit Reduction would reduce the chance the wearer has of landing a critical strike with a melee weapon, making this ring better built for an archer.

    Chris says it increases the attacker's crit chance on the target.

    It is the same language that is in fireflies.

    I thought the Dex was a positive effect and the other two were negatives. I would live to know for certain.

    Yes the whole Melee Critical Hit Reduction tooltip info is confusion and misleading. Maybe @Chris can modify the description to be clearer on what it does?

    Oh wow wait that effects ranged attacks against you aswell?

    What an annoying tooltip... why woulsnt you just put it as physical dmg crit %. Or all weapon crit chance..

    That explains the feelen of elite skeli archers criting me like 45% of the time.
