Precision

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki

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 where the primary Precision attribute is 1000, and 21 Precision grants 1% of Critical Chance (per the table below), the formula relating Precision to Critical Chance via the Hero Panel is:

Critical Chance (%) = 5 + [ (Precision - 1000) / 21 ]

In other words, the minimum Critical Chance is 5%, and Critical Chance increases by 1% for every 21 Precision above 1000. 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.

Precision required to increase Critical chance by 1%[edit]

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.

Critical Chance (%) = 5 + [ (Precision - Primary_attribute_base) / precision_per_1%_critical_chance ]

Example:

  • A character at level 2 has a base Precision of 44.
  • They receive a bonus of +2 Precision from the Banner of Discipline effect, bringing their total Precision to 46.
  • From the table above, the level 2 precision_per_1%_critical_chance coefficient is 1.2.
  • Their critical chance is therefore given by 5 + [ (46 - 44) / 1.2 ] which equates to 6.67% Critical Chance.

Notes[edit]

  • During the beta phase this attribute was called Perception.
  • To achieve 100% Critical Chance at level 80 after factoring in the 20% contribution from Fury, 4.76% contribution from Spotter, and 4.76% contribution from Banner of Discipline, a player must reach roughly 70.47% Critical Chance. If within the Fractals of the Mists with the Mistlock Singularities mastery and Infinite Mist Omnipotion, note that 150 Agony Resistance will add an additional 10.71% Critical Chance, meaning players need only 59.76% Critical Chance to reach 100% with all above-mentioned contributions. However, this does not factor in additional profession-specific modifiers to Critical Chance such as Righteous Instincts or Keen Observer. Note that there is no benefit to increasing Critical Chance above 100%.
