We all know the struggle of trying to decide whether or not to go with crit rate/ crit dmg main stat on a artifact or weapon. Here’s simplest formula.

Here’s the formula:

(Base Crit rate + Item crit rate) * (Base cri dmg + item crit dmg) / 100 = Overall DMG % boost

For example, I have base crit rate of 5% and base crit dmg of 50%, five star +20 crown offers either 31.1% crit rate / 62.2% crit dmg , which stat is better?

Case 1: I pick crit rate on artifact, (5+ 31.1) * ( 50 + 0 ) / 100 = 18.05 % DMG boost

Case 2: I pick crit dmg on artifact, ( 5 + 0) * ( 50 + 62.2) / 100 = 5.61 % DMG boost

Obviously I should pick 31.1 % crit rate on artifact in this case, dmg boost is significantly higher.

Example 2, I have base crit rate of 25% and base crit dmg of 70%, five star +20 artifact offer either 31.1% crit rate/62.2%, which stat is better?

Case 1: I pick crit rate on artifact, (25+ 31.1) * ( 70 + 0 ) / 100 = 39.27 % DMG boost

Case 2: I pick crit dmg on artifact, ( 25 + 0) * ( 70 + 62.2) / 100 = 33.05 % DMG boost

I should pick 31.1 % crit rate on artifact in this case for 6.22% more dmg.

Example 3, I have base crit rate of 40% and base crit dmg of 100%, five star +20 artifact offer either 31.1% crit rate/62.2%, which stat is better?

Case 1: I pick crit rate on artifact, (40+ 31.1) * ( 100 + 0 ) / 100 = 71.1 % DMG boost

Case 2: I pick crit dmg on artifact, ( 40 + 0) * ( 100 + 62.2) / 100 = 64.88 % DMG boost

I should pick 31.1 % crit rate on artifact in this case for 6.22% more dmg.

As you can see, 31.1% crit rate on the crown is consistently better than 62.2% crit dmg, even when you have base crit rate 40% and 100 % crit dmg.

(When I say base crit rate/ base crit dmg, I mean the stats before you equip the artifact/weapon, you can find that out easily by clicking on “details” on your character tab)

Disclaimer: the result can change base on your character base stats.

TLDR: if your crit rate is below 50% and crit dmg below 100%, crit rate % is always preferred on the crown for maximum % DMG boost.
