Talk:Increased Critical Strikes Support
"Linking Increased Critical Strikes to a skill that creates a minion, totem, trap, or mine will affect that summoned ally's chance to crit, assuming the skill the ally is using can crit."
Can minions normally score critical strikes? I mean Zombies and Skeletons, since Spectres will depend on what the monster originally was. If so, what is the crit chance?
- Yes, minions can crit. An easy way to confirm this for yourself is to give them some cold damage with something like HatredHatredAura, Spell, AoE, Cold

Right click to remove from a socket. - you will then see them freeze and shatter enemies from time to time. I can't say with 100% certainty what each type of minion's base crit chance is, but it's safe to assume that it will be the default crit chance of 5% in most cases. If a monster uses a player skill (eg cold snap elementals), it's pretty safe to assume that the crit chance of the skill wil be the same as the player skill.
- Some magic and rare monsters will have crit chance modifiers from affixes but will still be working off the base 5% crit, so if this gem is linked to one of the conversion skills, it should stack normally with the monster's modifiers. Spectres are always the same as a normal monster of the type that is raised, so you don't have to worry about the monster's modifiers in the case of spectres, since they won't have any.
- There may be some monster types with a different base crit chance, I don't know.
- With the line about "assuming the skill the ally is using can crit" I meant the gem will still be useless if applied to say, a totem that casts a curse. If you can think of a better way of wording that, go ahead and change it. — Malice (talk) 11:49, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
