Precision

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Precision.png Precision is a primary character attribute. It is used to calculate the derived attribute Critical Chance.png Critical Chance, which determines the character's chance of a critical hit against targets at the same level. The real chance to land critical hits is thus determined on a per-target basis; your chance of a critical hit is higher than displayed against targets below your level, but lower against targets above your level.

At level 80, the formula relating Precision to Critical Chance via the Hero Panel is:

Critical Chance = (Precision - 916) / 21

However, in-game testing results don't match the expected values. The actual formula is:

Critical Chance = (Precision - 895) / 21

In other words, Critical Chance is 0% when Precision is 895, and increases by 1% for every 21 Precision above that. Since the minimum value of Precision at level 80 is 1000, this means the minimum Critical Chance at level 80 is 5.0%. From the above equation, it follows 2995 precision is enough to reach the cap of 100% crit chance. This does not take into account flat critical chance effects such as fury and Sigil of Accuracy.

At other levels, the amount of Precision required to increase Critical Chance by 1% increases as you level, in a piecewise-linear fashion - increasing by 0.1 from levels 1-20, 0.2 from 21 to 40, 0.3 from 41 to 60, and 0.4 from 61 to 80.
