Is there a cooldown? Redscull 20:06, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Would also like to know. -- 04:23, 29 October 2012 (PDT)
Tested on a group of golems in the mists with 100% crit chance. Mostly stuck to 5 stacks with it going off every 2 seconds. A few times when I spammed a lot of skills (whirlwind, blade trail on GS warrior) it would hit 7 stacks, so there might be a way to overcome the timer (like procing on multiple enemies at the same time). Despite that it looks like a general 2 second cd.
This page says 1 second cooldown though.
30% chance on critical, with a 100% critical chance that would add up to about once every 2 seconds with if you hit 3 times in 2 seconds. Also explains why many more hits proc more often, with a 2 second cooldown you can never have more then 5 stacks. Amy Awien 19:28, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
It should be noted that the actual rate of procs you see will fall dramatically with crit chances lower then 100%, for instance with a 50% crit rate the number of procs one might expect would be less than 10% of shots fired. User:JonJonz 27 February 2013
Tested in sPvP with both ranger (97% crit chance) horn-4 & shortbow, as well as thief (84% + 7% crit chance) dagger storm - I could stack up to 9 stacks of might (without additional boon duration). The procs aren't reliable though: Sometimes it procced once every second, sometimes it doesn't once in 10 seconds. I excluded any secondary might stacking via skills, traits and peer-buffing. --Maeggle (talk) 13:37, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Shared cooldown?[edit]

If you dual wield have have two of these sigils, are the cooldowns independent, make it possible to attain 2 stacks from a single crit?-- 05:38, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Proccing one will put the other on cooldown and vice-versa. As a rule, using two on-crit sigils on the same weapon set is a waste.-- 16:58, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
I disagree. Particularly with this sigil. It has only a 30% chance to proc on critical. If you crit and the first sigil does not proc the second sigil may. I'm forget how to do that sort of math but it WILL increase your chance at a proc. 06:23, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
that comment wasn't refering to same type on-crit sigils. but yes percents work funny ways but would still be an increased proc chance. 17:33, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Having 2 sigils would put your proc rate at 30% + (30% * 70%) = 51% (the formula is {probability of first event} + {probability of second event * probability that the second event will be considered}). Keep in mind that you will likely see significantly less than a 70% increase (51% is a 70% increase from 30%) in proc rate due to the ICD. Akaji 18:43, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
