Critical hits are higher-than-normal hits that a player can deal at random. They were introduced into the game during the Evolution of Combat and its beta. The critical bonus stat for each combat style in essence replaced the pre-EoC strength bonus, ranged strength and magic damage stats on jewellery.

For abilities, critical hits guarantee the maximum amount of damage possible from the ability, plus a random 0% to 5% extra damage on top. For example, the Omnipower ability normally deals between 200% and 400% of the active weapon damage, but a critical hit with that ability will guarantee a 400% hit and a bonus 0% to 20% on top.[1] Ability criticals in PvP do not have the 0% to 5% bonus and will hit consistently under the same conditions.

For auto-attacks, critical hits are a simple 100%-105% of the player's Damage stat.

In the 30 seconds after the ultimate abilities Meteor Strike, Incendiary Shot, or Tsunami are used, each critical hit will generate 10% adrenaline.

Dealing a critical hit shows to all nearby players as a number in a very large, bold and italic font. The colour of the numbers shows the type of the critical hit. Large orange numbers are melee critical hits, large green numbers are ranged, and large blue numbers are magical.

Increasing critical chanceEdit

AbilitiesEdit

The ability Slice has a 10% greater chance to land a critical hit, and Needle Strike increases your next hit's critical chance by 10%. Concentrated Blast's attacks increase the next attack's critical hit chance by 5%.

EquipmentEdit

Various items can be worn to increase the critical chance.
