    So if I have 100% Crushing Blow...

    ... and, let's say, I'm killing Hell Baal, does this actually mean he'll die in 16 hits that land?

    No, each hit will attempt to remove 1/8 (melee hit) or 1/16 (ranged hit) of his current life. So the first hit will do more damage than the second, which will do more damage than the third, etc.
    Eventually, you will reach a point where the Crushing Blow part of the damage is smaller than the actual physical/elemental part of the damage.

    Also, Baal has 50% physical resistance on Hell difficulty (0% on the other two difficulties).

    No, CBs deal a fraction of a monster's *remaining* life, so it becomes less effective when it's down to a sliver. That's when regular damage comes into play.

    CBs actually deal 1/8 of the life of a boss, but I guess you included hell Baal's 50% physical resistance.

    Gotcha!

    Edit: jiansonz 2, krischan 0, deniska 0!

    Oh and BTW, does it replace the damage I was supposed to do with the weapon, or add on top of it?

    Another Edit, after 20 CBs in a row, he'll be reduced to 27.5% of his original HP, that's definitely not bad, for frenzy barb, that's like 10 seconds. I'm wondering if people actually use 100 CB chance setups?

    cb is calculated before the normal dmg

    Not really, it's not worth it.

    I have a 100% CB 100% DS zealot. The damage is ridiculous, though others before me have also achieved 100% OW as well. I don't know how much OW my zealot has, but it's probably >50%.

    As butchie said, it's not really worth it. Once you get up to ~70%, more isn't that big of a deal, and attack speed is much more important then a few more % points of CB.

    Another question, while we're on it. Does it work with ranged attacks, physical that is. And if I'm firing a multishot, will the chance count for each arrow independently?

    CB normally reduces the enemy's health by 1/8th, but with ranged attacks, it's 1/16th. So, the chance for an effect is the same, but the effect is half.

    With multishot.....there are several effects that only work on the middle two arrows. I'm not sure if CB works on all, but looking at the multi vs. strafe thread in the zon forum should answer that.

    I haven't said that, but deniska.

    IMO, more than 50% isn't needed when you are using it for smiting übers and hell Baal, all the rest can be killed with zeal anyway... except PIs, but that's a different story.

    yes cb isnt some wonder cure - ww barbs in classic are prime example of this. by far the fastest attack - hitting 25 times a second, but still cb alone doesnt do much after the first part of life
