Critical Hits

Critical Hits are an aspect of the combat system which represent a particularly successful attempt at an action.

All weapons and most spells have a Critical Hit variation of their normal effect. This usually means doing higher damage. However, a wide variety of critical hits effects exist, so check the spell to be sure what it does.

Critical Failures

Critical Failures are an aspect of the combat system which represent a particularly unsuccessful attempt at an action.

Unlike Critical Hits, a Critical Failure simply causes the action to fail, however, the cost (in AP/MP/WP) is still spent.

Base Values

  • The base Critical Hits value for all classes is 3.
  • The base Critical Failures value for all classes is 0. Without increasing this, no Critical Failures will occur for a character.

Hit vs Failure

If you manage a Critical Hit and a Critical Failure in the same action, then the Critical Failure takes priority and cancels out the Critical Hit. The cost will be spent, but nothing will happen.

Altering Criticals

A number of spells and effects can alter the chance of Critical Hits or Failure of a creature.
