is rather straightforward in what it does; a massive amount of critical strike multiplier in exchange for 40% less critical strike chance.

With the base 150% Critical Strike Multipler the breakeven point where Marylene's does less damage is if your base critical strike multiplier before equipping Marylene's is higher than 235% (85% additional critical strike multiplier).

Version history

Version Changes
2.6.0
  • No longer has the property non-critical strikes deal 40% less damage.
2.2.0
  • All sources of increased Critical Strike Multiplier have been changed to additional Critical Strike Multiplier. This change brings the functionality in line with how most players think it works.
  • Because of this, all items, passives and some skills/support gems that used to have increased Critical Strike Multiplier are now 33% less effective on players, despite having the same value. A number of these have been adjusted in value to maintain similar effectiveness.
  • Divine Orbs are required to update the following to their new values: All craftable Jewel mods which grant Critical Strike Multiplier, Facebreaker, Marylene's Fallacy, Fragment of Eternity (the Descent: Champions Unique), Bino's Kitchen Knife, Romira's Banquet, Shadows and Dust, Ungil's Harmony, Eclipse Solaris, Death's Harp, Mortem Morsu, The Goddess Scorned and Abyssus.
2.0.0
  • Non-critical strike damage penalty has been reduced from 75% to 60%.
