    This is done with just Fireflies, 125 Ranged, Rapid Fire.... The crit numbers are all over with like a high of 260ish.

    But, I was under the impression that it is actually SUPPOSED to double your chances of landing a critical hit. That seems to almost certainly not be the case.

    I know it is supposed to be different for weapon types. Bows get extra crit chance bonus for DEX, and swords/pole/bludgeon get different multipliers for crit damage.

    So I guess a test needs to be done to document actual performance of Crit Chance, in front of and behind a target. I'll do it. Does 1000 arrows from both sides constitute sufficient data?

    I think I'll try two extremes, as well. Unarmored and fully buffed.

    You mean like... a case control study with sufficient sample size to meet statistical significance?!

    Sounds very interesting, but I'm afraid even if it showed crit chance was working as intended, some would remain unconvinced.

    It's all part of the Great Bow Conspiracy, you see. And you are obviously a paid actor.

    It's an offshoot of Project Black Beam... An Obsidian plot to install Evil Atos as the Supreme Ultimate Grand Emporer of Novia, where he will then proceed to ban all ranged weapons thus leaving Avatars defenseless against the coming of the Feline Overlords from Planet Kilrathi.

    737 released yet? Ugh! This is awful not playing. Is everyone impacted by this latest bug in 736 that makes it so that all specializations go to "untrain" no matter what you do? (if you use any skill)

    Lucky me. I have not had a chance to play the newest release because I am stuck in a hotel while my place is renovated so have no access to computer. Probably be another week and half before I can so all these bugs should be resolved right??? :) :)

    I played for quite awhile last night with both my Specialization set at maintain and did not notice either one dropping. One was at 80 and the other at 60.

    When did that patch go live? It never occurred to me to check. Though, I suppose if the skill had lost a level, it'd have popped up on the side of my screen.

    No, I've been reading those reports, but I trained blades to about 60 right after the patch, put it on maintain, trained death, got it up to about 60 without affecting blades and put it on maintain, picked up heavy armor just in case....did have some immediate strangeness where it wanted to train but I set it to untrained and its stayed there.

    Currently leveling up death (75) with blades set to maintain(63ish), and its functioning correctly (even if its fiddly to get one to train and not set the other one to untrain).

    That is so weird. It seems to be only impacting some people. No idea how that could be. I have tried so many different things. It was totally normal before 736. I got Life and Ranged Specializations above 80, and was really enjoying things. Then BOOM. Nothing I do will allow me to keep these two particular skills. I have a bunch of the Specializations I am interested in unlocked, but I only really trained up Life and Ranged so far. I even checked like 10 times to see that ALL specializations were set to untrain. Then I set only one to train, and it still sets itself automatically to untrain the second I use any skill. Related to that tree or not.

    It could only be affecting people who have more then two unlocked. It seems the more are unlocked the more complex dealing with it is.
