    Deadly strike crit strike question.

    Hello,
    I have 2 questions.
    One is obviously i want to obtain 100% deadly strike. With critical strike from mastery, highlords , grief or Edeath. is this possible?
    As a BvC to achieve the highest deadly strike possibly hypothetically if it is at 100% is Edeath / beast a better combo than grief / beast?

    How does critical strike work in correlation with deadly strike? can anyone point me to a formula?

    This is how CS and DS work together:
    Chance to double damage = (1 - (1-CS%/100)*(1-DS%/100))*100

    Each weapon applies its own DS only to its own attacks. I.e. the DS on 'Death' will not add to the DS on 'Grief' when you swing with 'Grief' and vice versa.

    There are lots of threads comparing various weapons, ethereal 'Death'/'Beast' does not win out in terms of damage/speed.

    With 'Grief', Highlord's (+33%), Gore Rider, and Weapon Mastery, you almost have 80% chance to double damage so that's pretty good. If your off-hand is 'Beast' it obviously won't have that much.

    warning: the Death runeword has no %ias on it so you will never get a 4 frame ww with one.

    there's a REASON grief+beast is the cookie cutter weapon choices: they work.

    e-Death is a weapon for Chargers, Zealots and PvM fenzy barbs.
