Q bout ds & crushing blow

this question is probably asked a lot but does deadly strike and crushing blow work with whirlwind? I heard the percentage doesnt stack so how do u calculate how many percent you have?

-thanks for your time :)

Both deadly/critical strike and crushing blow work with Whirlwind.

There is no stacking issue that I'm aware of --- Whirlwind only uses IAS that's on the weapon, but crushing blow and deadly/critical strike are taken from everywhere.

Deadly Strike and Crushing Blow are attached to the weapon you use them on. DS and CB from other sources (helm, armor, etc.) they count on both weapons.


Weapon 1 has 20 CB
Weapon 2 has 20 DS
40% of CB and DS from other sources

Attacking with Weapon 1 gives 60% CB and 40% DS.
Attacking with Weapon 2 gives 40% CB and 60% DS.

There is no cap on either one, but they don't do extra for going over 100%. Deadly Strike and Critical Strike are exclusive. One is checked, then the other is checked. To check your chance for double damage, use this formula:
Double Damage % = CS + (DS/100)*(100-CS)
