Critical strike questiono

Let's take Headstriker for example, when it gets 100 % Deadly strike what does it double? Is it the base weapon dmg or dmg after on weapon ed% and does enhanced damage from skills count in it? Please enlighten my ignorance. Thx

The following is copied directly from the Arreat Summit.

Deadly Strike
This is a chance of doing double damage. This bonus is applied after skills such as Critical Strike and any other damage bonuses. Critical Strike (CS) and Deadly Strike (DS) exclude each other.

If you have a 33% Deadly Strike item, and 68% Critical Strike Skill the complete chance to get double damage is:

=CS + (DS/100)*(100-CS)
=68% + (33/100)*32%
=68% + 10.56%
=78.56%

Hope this helps.

So it will double your total displayed dmg (if there are no errors of course :rolleyes: ) but not counting elemental dmg either?

It says it goes last, so I would assume it would double the elemental damage also. Just my guess.

The Lying Character Screen. I don't trust it.

Deadly Strike and Critical Strike do not double elemental dmg, only pure physical dmg.
