So I’m a bit confused about what +X% Critical Damage actually does. I was mousing over my Critical Hit value in the Hero screen and noticed that Critical Damage displayed a value that didn’t seem to match what I had in my build. I started removing my gear (all of it, not just the pieces that had +crit dam on them) and ended up naked with +30% crit damage from traits. The number displayed in critical damage on the hero screen was now 21. What does this value mean and how does this crit damage actually work? I was under the impression that it just added a raw additive percentile to the base damage value of a crit.
