    It looks purdy?

    There is no real point. The cap is at 95% or 100%. Not sure which one.

    well, say you were to use one on a barbarian, or on a character wearing peace armor: the critical strike and deadly strike don't add together they factor, so I think that would ensure 100% double damage regardless of mastery?

    Over 100% has no point, but having 60% at level 40 and 100% at level 67 is pretty sweet.

    100%

    I agree with pugilist. Over 100% will factor in when applying the formula for adding critical strike and deadly strike.

    100% of either deadly (item-based) or critical strike (skill-based) makes the other irrelevent: you'll do double damage gauranteed and no more (1.10+ uses the same formula for both and doesn't quadruple the damage any more).

    This thread seems like the right place to ask.

    I been told that deadly strike does not stack like crushing blow does. For example having goreriders and highlord would offer 2 different rolls for the deadly strike when damage are applied. I know that deadly strike can allow apply once, but does it stack or not?

    I believe the chance% simply adds together.

    Say, for example, you're using Highlord's and Gore Riders on a level 80 character. Highlords at level 80 is 30%, Gore Riders is 15%, That would make a total of 45% chance for deadly strike, if this is the correct way. Correct me if i'm wrong, though.

    No, you're right. It's Critical Strike and Deadly Strike that not stack.

    DS does not stack either. Each source is calcualated seperately.

    SO Highlords has a 30% chance and is calcualted. If it succeeds all other sources are ignored. If it fails then the next source is checked. So the 15% chance on gores is checked.

    Can you prove this conclusively?

    No. Multiple sources of Deadly Strike stack, unless they are both on seperate weapons.
