I have a full set of soldiers gear, I knights weapon and all knights jewellery. How can I increase my Crit chance past 34% without changing my gear much? I do WvW and dungeons...

Sigil of Superior Accuracy
For some reason when I link it it links to a different sigil.... not sure why.... so you can look it up yourself.

It's good till you are downed or WP out of a zone - you then have to build those 25 stacks back up. If you are playing PvE content, that is fine, any other content (i.e.: dungeon or WvW), that may be problematic; hence why some suggest sigil of accuracy for the flat 5% accuracy increase (though you will not see the 5% added to your crit chance - its a glitch).

You will not be able to hit the desired 50% without sacrificing that 1200 healing.

Wear full Knights, no way around it, no cutting corners.

That or Runes that increase Perception like Superior Rune of Lyssa. If you don't use half a dozen already.

Runes are useless if you are aiming for stat increase.

Also OP Silgil of accuracy > Preception

max perception is 250 precision =10% crt chance roughly, building stacks can be annoying in WvW especially as a guardian.

You will not have it maxed 24/7. Especially not as a guardian in WvW

I sense bickering and no useful information. Can't you eat food for WvW? If so use Master Maintenance Oil[s] and Curry Butternut Squash Soup. They work in pve for sure. Hope this helps

People confuse definitions of irony - but irony can also be saying something with a meaning that is opposite of what is literally implied by the words (similar to a common interpretation of sarcasm)...

Since dungeons are part of your concern (@ OP) for raising crit chance, I'd suggest food/maintenance oil (as already suggested above).  Also remember that partying with an auramancer Ele or a FGJ Warrior will give decent uptime on Fury (+20% crit chance).

34% is a pretty arbitrary number.

Ways to increase crit without changing armor:
Runes that increase crit chance like Lyssa.
Sigils like people have stated. Perception is better than Accuracy, but if you use both on different weapons then that would be even better.
Traits: Either lots in Radiance for crit, or 10 Valor for Retributive armor for 5%.

Food Buffs/maintenance oil: Don't remember off hand which ones, but they give substantial increase in crit.

Rune of Lyssa is +165 precision.  Emerald Orb is +120 and doesn't give any of the other benefits.

Use oil's and play with teams that have perma group fury. No more precision needed. Oil's are perfect because they take from your toughness.

Also there is a guardian trait that takes from your toughness and gives to precision.

Now all we need is knights ascended items...come on anet you know you want to.

Plus toughness and power. making the overall stats better than runes, not to say how cheap they are.

Or you can get secondary weapons With perception, swap to accuracy when u have 25 stacks and have -when duall wielding- a Free sigil.

Thanks for stating it better, when I wrote it I only had like 30s so I just gave basic info. I do the same thing as mention but with bloodlust.

True, but I run a lot of WvW in addition to PVE and having Renewed Focus not only give 3s immunity and Virtue reset, but also a complete condition cleanse and every buff (stability as well) is IMO far more valuable then 120 power/toughness.
