Crit chance or crit damage trade off

Just looted some legendary gloves that give +7.5% crit chance.

However, if I equip them I lose the crit damage on my gloves.

Old gloves - 22% chance, 201% dmg
new gloves - 29.5% chance, 174% dmg.

Any advice on what the best trade is? dmg # goes up a few K with the old gloves (and +vit too). Not that it's a big trade off but even for future reference. Not sure if a massive crit chance % is good except then you crit for nothing unless you have rank gear.

Do the following...

Crit chance X ( 1 + Crit damage) = how much you are better off

Depends on your build. I prefer crit chance over dmg, as I need my spells to proc crits more importantly than doing dmg. However, both are important.

I'd say the new gloves on the above stats. 7.5% more chance to crit. But if you're rocking a slower arcane orb build you might wanna stay dmg.
