    Well as you can see, i have 0% crit on my stats. Ive done some testing and it appears that i only receive crit from weapons not from adornments ring etc. Im not sure what caused this but i have currently equipped Bloodtooth (25%crit) and i am using the full keens set (10% crit) and im finding it very difficult to continue in pvp without my ability to utilize crit. i hope this is just a simply bug that can be repaired and not something permanent.

    Here is the link to my issue

    How can you be level 50 and with those items (meaning you've been playing for a while) but still not know something as basic as this about the game? Something smells weird here o_O

    It's normal, no bug.
    All % in the game were applied on "number bonuses" so if you have 0 crit and 35% crit you get 0.
    If you have 1000 crit and 35% crit then you'll have 1350 crit.

    It is the same with health, damage and so on.

    This is the link you should have posted: http://image.prntscr.com/image/19832fe4640b4f88a3c5cacb8aa57789.jpg

    Either that or use imgur or something. The % bonus means you have to have more than 0 and then it is a % increase based on that. The higher your base, the greater than % increase will benefit. If you have 100 crit and get a 35% increase then you gain 35 more crit. It is 35% of 100 base crit rating.

    Just so you know, 35% of zero is still zero. It won't benefit you at all.

    A crit hit rate weapon adornment is a must (it's actually a norm) in case you didn't know.

    35% times 0 = 0, as everybody is pointing out. Quickest fix looks like it is junking the current weapon adornment (which I'm assuming is something like a mix of +damage and crit damage%) and getting/crafting a 3x or 4x crit hit value adornment . Given the situation you're in, settling for a 4x with even 700 crit hit rate adornment would be a quick boost.

    Better solution is to craft a decent legendary axe because it comes with 1378 crit hit value as a base stat. A 3× increased weapon damage - 1× +damage axe would be ideal. Glyph it up to level 55 and you'll have 1708 crit being multiplied by 1.35 for 2306 crit.

    As Novadude pointed out axes are pretty much the ""go to" for DK's. But crafting a good one may take some time. A quick solution would be to replace the ring (not the bloodtooth, the other one ;)) and weapon adornment. Jewelry drops are very common and crafting a ring with 4 CHR lines, even starting from greens, is fairy easy. As for the wep adorn, I get legendary drops of those with 4 CHR lines on a fairly regular basis.

    Ofc, I am not talking about gold stat lines on either. Right now though those two items, along with your 35% bonus, should get a usable CHR. If the currently equipped items are part of your increased crit damage that's pretty much a "so what" issue right now :)

    Luck be with ye,

    I just noticed he has a tier II dragan ring, which is 600 crit right there. what's on the legendary ring? Swapping that is also a quick fix. 600 crit from the dragan ring and 700 crit from a hypothetical mediocre 4× crit adornment would give 1300 crit; times 1.35 would give about 1755 crit; glyph those 2 to level 54 and you'll have 2000 crit.

    I'm in the same boat as Haven. I'm most shocked that someone would be that level, with those items, and not understand how "xx.xx% increased critical hit rate" works. I'd recommend the Dragan ring and a +crit weapon adornment and it will easily give 1k more more crit. That is 1350 crit which is 12.17% crit. And, if you ditch the very dated Cloaked Wrath (which is just a very rare gem holder these days), an axe will give you 1387 base crit which would be boosted to 1872. Add those together and you'd have 3222 crit, or 29.05% chance with only a minimal amount of effort and no glyphs applied.

    Alternatively, you can always ditch the 1H build and go 2H with an axe and really do some damage.
