Critical Rate Broken?

Hi. Since I leveled to level 54, I have gotten a critical rate.
This critical rate is 89%.
But when I go to my character, if I wave the mouse over it, it becomes 19%.
I was wondering, is this why i haven't gotten a critical in over 3 weeks?
Please help me, and tell me, what can I do to fix this?

It isnt percent, its chance.

Wow, I don't get why people don't get these.

The Critical Rating is simply a number. Not a percent. Your number you see initially on your stats is random. I don't know how to do the math, but with 19% Critical, you actually have a good chance of Critical for spell. Weird I know.

So, the rating is simply a number. it's not a successful critical 89 out of 100 times, but it's just a number used to tell some weird thing.

The rating is not just some random number!

Your critical points are how many you have out of 500 total possible points. so if you have 89 points you have 18%.
