Precision

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. At level 80, the formula relating Precision to Critical Chance is:

Critical Chance = (Precision - 841.9664) / 21.0084

The displayed Critical Chance in the Hero Panel is incorrect, and generally lower than your true Critical Chance based on the above equation.

In other words, Critical Chance is 0% when Precision is 841.9664, and increases by 1% for every 21.0084 Precision above that. Since the minimum value of Precision at level 80 is 926, this means the minimum Critical Chance at level 80 is 4.0%. Only at base 926 precision is critical chance equal to the equation. As you increase precision, the hero panel will display incrementally lower critical chance as the percentage increases.

e.g. If You want to cap 100% crit chance (fury gives 20%, then You need 80%) You need to obtain 2522,6384 Precision (2522 is enough because with warrior Banner of Discipline You'll get 80%). You need to take into consideration things like: Spotter (Ranger Trait), Banner of Discipline, Signets with Precision (Warrior, Thief & Elementalist), Lightning Hammer (when wielding, it gives 180 Precision), Food, Nourisment, Traits (Major and Minor), Sigils (Accuracy & Perception, this 2nd sigil is NOT recomended) & Runes. Some enemies are on higher leveled than 80, this mean that stats are scaling down when You fighting with that opponent (e.g. Lupicus) and You need more precision to cap 100%.

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.
