Even before this patch, I have been doing some excel stuff to determine how useful +crit damage mods are for Evisceration vs. DE, and I basically came to the conclusion that if you pDif is low (1.000 or lower) evisceration should average about the same as DE without any crit damage bonus. @ ~1.5 cRatio, you need about 10-12% crit to beat DE on a regular basis. If you are at 2.0 cRatio, you should just keep using DE, unless you want to go for those full crit, beautiful Eviscerations.
Was that 10-12% a base crit rate? ie base crit rate with merits is 9%. With dex gear 10-12 shouldnt be hard at all (in good dex gear you can cap on exp mobs and then some), and that ignores the ~10ish estimated from the Evis crit rate test thread (NEED MOAR TESTS!). Or did you mean +10-12% from dex?
I ran some numbers on that years ago, but totally forgot what rate was needed to pass up DE. Edited, Jun 25th 2010 1:17pm by Banalaty
