No critical rating, no critical?

Oct 24, 2010
I recently took off my global critical rating gear to put on my block gear that only has critical rating on myth and nothing else. Ever since that when I use vengeance (20% critical aura) I never ever had critical a school outside of myth. So do I need to have at least 1 rating on a school in order to perform a critical? The vengeance is only a 20% boost so there's no critical rating increase.

You've just had bad luck, I'd say. My Fire got a crit Satyr with just vengeance, but that was some time ago. It could be a bug though, for all I know.

It's just bad luck. 20% isn't that much and therefore highly unreliable. I have 55% critical on my wizard (while maintaining 38% block) and I can miss a critical 3-4 times in a row. It's theoretically possible to never get a critical as long as you don't have 100% critical.
