Whats Deadly Strike? Do?
Whats Deadly Strike? do?
It's a chance to do double the damage it displays on your character screen.
I think your thinking about critical strike buddy
Critical strike and deadly strike both have a chance to do double damage.
"This (meaning deadly strike) bonus is applied after skills such as Critical Strike and any other damage bonuses. Critical Strike (CS) and Deadly Strike (DS) exclude each other."

IIRC it only doubles phsyical damage, and Critical Strike will never apply at the same time as Double Strike, meaning no 4x damage
No, he's right, they both do the same thing.
Is it all damage or just phsyical?
crushing blow does 2x dmg as well right? and breaks phy immunities..
Just trying to get this right
Meme, my post wasn't in response to you. However, I don't believe it is just physical, seeing as how it works with berserk, which makes everything magical. As far as I know, it doubles all of your damage, though I might be wrong.
As for the crushing blow statement, crushing below takes off a % of enemy health per swing, which fluctuates between difficulties. I don't see how it would break physical immunities...
Deadly Strike and Critical Strike aren't just added together for you chance to hit double damage it's calculated in this formula:
CS + (DS/100)*(100-CS)
33% DS from Highlords
15% DS from Gore Riders
22% CS from Mastery
22 + (47/100)*(100-22)
58.66% Chance of double damage
This is a chance of reducing a monster's health by X% in a single blow.
-vs. Players: 1/10th
-vs. Hirelings: 1/10th
-vs. Champions, Uniques, Bosses: 1/8th
-with missile weapons, default: 1/8th
-with missile weapons, vs. Players: 1/20th
-with missile weapons, vs Hirelings: 1/20th
-with missile weapons, vs Champions, Uniques, Bosses: 1/16th
-The life removed is also scaled with number of players. So that if a monster has 450% more life due to 8 players (or whatever the value is) the life removed is further reduced by the same amount (450% would equal multiplying by 4.5 so the life removed by Crushing Blow is divided by 4.5). Physical resistance does apply to Crushing Blow damage, but only if the resistance is positive. Crushing Blow Items stack in most cases. In 1.10 Crushing Blow is calculated before your normal damage. So, before doing the damage that you would normally do, there is a chance you will reduce the health of the monster by X% then normal damage apply to the resulting lower life. If you have more than one item with Crushing Blow, the probabilities will be added together. There will be one random check for a Crushing Blow. There is no check for each separate item, so one can not get multiple Crushing Blows in one attack.
Berserk might seem like it does double damage because some monsters have physical resistance and no magical resistance such as Minions of Destruction. Players could also have 50% Damage Reduce too, so I don't think double damage works with Berserk, but I could be wrong
I am very certain that deadly strike and critical strike ONLY double your physical damage. The reason why it boosts berserk as well is because (i believe it works this way from what i've tested) eg. deadly strike on your mastery doubles your physical damage and then takes that new total and converts it into magical damage. This doesn't apply to amp damage with berserk as it operates based on lowering the monster's physical resistance but berserk only does magical damage. This means that amp damage does not help berserk.
I heard DS doubles all ele and magic damage... but i dunno then how it works with phys.
DS doesn't work in pvp does it?
Yes, it does.
Is that a Dr. Hobo icon?
