Critical Strike is one of the first skills an Amazon can learn in the Passive and Magic Skills tab. Critical Strike should be a pretty standard skill for all builds, since a chance of hitting twice the amount of damage is always a great bonus. However, maxing out this skill may not be a good idea as the points start to drop off quickly. Between levels 11 and 20, you only gain a 10% better chance to release critical strikes, which averages to about less than 0.5% per point.
Because Critical Strike will work with any weapon, it is a very essential Amazon skill to obtain. The beauty of Critical Strike is that it is a Passive skill, so it is always "active" and will combine with any additional skills you may use like Multiple Shot, Pierce and so on.
Any points invested into Critical Strike will also give your Valkyrie summon exactly the same chance to deal twice the amount of damage.
- Note: Poison damage does not have ANY effect on the triggering of Critical Strike. This is a myth. However, Critical Strike affects physical damage and therefore poison damage is not affected by it. The myth was likely given birth from a miscommunication of this concept.
Among the arsenal of techniques employed by the Amazon warrior is her ability to study opponents carefully and detect any weaknesses. She can then use these deficiencies in her adversary to strike at precisely those areas that will cause the greatest injuries.
