    Hm... does the 6% Critical Hit rate stack?

    You know those rare/ex weapons that you have to unlock that all have +dmg and Critical Hit Rate +6% stats? Well, what if you had 2 of them? Like a Dissector and a Retributor on a WAR/NIN. Would you get +12% for all your hits or would it be 6% for just that weapon?

    They should stack, since Destroyers affect my critical rate on Kick Attacks too (or I'm just really lucky).

    A lot of the unlocked weapons are really quite good, especially due to the wide job variety on them. For example THF can't use most of the best damage HTH weapons but they can use Destroyers.

    Let me ask you this:


    When you use a weapon with STR+3 in your offhand, does it apply to all your hits, or only the offhand hits ??

    Actually, from what I hear the +en-spell damage from Enhancing Sword does not transfer to another weapon if you dual wield, so it is possible that the critical hit weapons are the same way. (And another reason why Enhancing Sword is over-priced.)

    As far as I'm aware the critical hit +6% won't work in offhand but the additional D will.

    well I tested it out thf/nin.


    Now if it only worked in the offhand, wouldnt my critical hit rate jump only 3% instead of 6% ??

    Same, I've tested that and it's enhancing sword only.

    parsing damage using a fudo (+3% crit) main hand and senjuinrikio (+6% crit) offhand and without critical hit merits i crit about 10% of the time

    i'm pretty sure it transfers from offhand to main hand and vice versa

    Have you tried parsing some fights with fudo on main hand and a non-crit bonus weapons on the off hand? That would give us something to compare to.

    I know someone who parsed for hours on end with 2 Fudos and a Senjuiriko and found that the crit rates DO NOT stack.

    I myself have a Senj, Dissector, and Heart Snatcher unlocked, and after about 60 hours of soloing with said weapons, I can tell you that they don't. When I main my Senj, it crits the same regardless of what the sub weapon is, be it another katana or a Dissector. So yeah, they don't stack.

    But if you get the +3% in crit merits and solo around with +33 DEX, you still do crit quite a lot =P
