wtf is deadly strike?
The Bible of Diablo 2
I underlined the key concept for you. Welcome to the forums.
oh cool thank you...
edit:so if my character screen says i do 1000-1500 and i have 100% deadly strike do i really do 2000-3000? or does the character screen include it.
No, I do not think the CS includes it, as it is purely chance, and is considered a chance even at 100%+. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway, I wouldn't rely on the CS too much, it occasionally outputs the wrong numbers.
But to answer your question, if you have 100% Deadly Strike, and presumably do 1000-1500 damage, then you deal 2000-3000 damage (excluding the defensive properties of the thing you are trying to hit).
Also note that Deadly Strike doubles only PHYSICAL damage.
On a final note, Deadly Strike and Critical Strike work the same (double physical damage), the only difference is that they don't stack and are distinctly checked.
ok thanks for the help guys
