Why don't my poisons crit for 200%

Or a hunter's Serpent Sting? (Without a talent)

Every DPS caster had their crits changed to 200%. DK's diseases and Death Coil also crit for 200%, it really just feels like Blizzard forgot about some class's abilities.

Rogue poisons don't crit for 100% extra damage? I always thought they did... yeah that seems logical

You aren't a caster, you don't get 200% dot crits baked in, and so you shouldn't. DK diseases shouldn't crit either IMO.

I just wish that our poisons used melee crit instead of spell crit.

See that makes sense - it SHOULD be using melee crit if it's being treated as a physical(ish) effect.

Think of it like this - your dps isn't as crit dependent as a caster


I really don't care about poison crits, but what the heck is that quote supposed to mean?

Think of it like this - your dps isn't as crit dependent as a caster, but is roughly the same.

Less RNG is good.


Someone doesn't understand how rogues work.

Nope, rogue dps isn't as crit dependent as a caster's...which is why the assassination tree alone has 9 places to sink talent points that directly result in changes to crit strike damage bonuses or crit strike chance of abilities.

I support this. It's a PvE buff when we could use one, with few PvP implications.

Do Enhance spell abilites crit at 200%? I assume they would since they're just using LB, but I didn't know how Lava Lash, etc work. Wouldn't want them to be left out.

Nope. Lava burst is the only spell Maelstrom weapon doesn't affect because Blizz doesn't want enhancement using it, and enhancement spells only crit for 150%. It really puts a damper on the whole storm strike causes your nature spells to crit 35% more often thing because when they do crit, you can barely tell.

My spells don't crit for 200%.

My melee strikes do, but... I only have two of them. (unless you count Windfury)
