Your hits can't be Evaded
Never deal Critical Strikes [1]
Great tacticians learn that consistency often trumps potential.

Resolute Technique (often referred to as RT) is a keystone passive skill that will raise your chance to hit to 100%, ignoring all accuracy and evasion stats of the attacker and defender respectively, at the cost of preventing you from dealing critical strikes.

Mechanics

Because elemental damage can no longer critically strike, most elemental status ailments will not apply unless another source adds chance. Skills such as Glacial HammerGlacial HammerAttack, Melee, Strike, Cold

Hits enemies, converting some of your physical damage to cold damage. If an enemy is frozen and is on less than one third life, they will shatter when hit by Glacial Hammer. If striking three times in a row, the third strike will freeze enemies more easily. Requires a Mace, Sceptre or Staff.Per 1% Quality:1232% increased Duration of Cold Ailments0.5% increased Attack Speed1% increased Area of EffectDeals (155-200)% of Base Attack Damage

and the Diamond Shrine, have no effect on a character with the Resolute Technique.

Spells inherently can't be evaded, so they don't benefit from Resolute Technique, but it still takes away their ability to crit.

Attack hits can still be blocked or dodged, even with Resolute Technique.
