Just a thought :)

Defense gives bnoth avoidance and crit immunity, and therefore it >>> resilience.

spell crit

Postby Mavrix » Sun May 20, 2007 9:19 am

I see a lot of people talking about spells from mobs being unable to crit and pve spell crits being non-existant, while others seem fairly certain they have themselves been crit during pve by spells.
Can anyone post a link to a blue post or other evidence that spell crits can't come from mobs to put this issue to rest for us?
If necessity is the mother of invention, laziness must be the father.

I'm looking for a thread now, though the onus is really on those who say NPCs can crit with spells to produce a screenshot showing that, as you can't provide a screenshot showing that mobs never crit ;)

If mobs were capable of critting with spells, you'd see it happen a lot more often than the random "I got crit by a spell! It must be possible after all!" that pops up every so often.

I can assure you that in my 2 years of tanking max-level content I have never seen a mob's spell crit.
