Precision
Precision is a primary character attribute. It is used to calculate the derived attribute 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.
From the above equation, 2942.81 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. In addition, monsters above level 80 have reduced critical chance against them.[citation needed]
At other levels, the amount of Precision required to increase Critical Chance by 1% increases as you level, in a piecewiselinear fashion  increasing by 0.1 from levels 120, 0.2 from 21 to 40, 0.3 from 41 to 60, and 0.4 from 61 to 80.
