70 UM

Hey guys.

So I have a hunter, around 1k luc 870ish dex, 2400+ attack, and everybody told me to lower my LUC because i'll hit harder.

So, I'd have 2700+ attack, 700ish luc and 870 ish dex (dex is perfect atm). What do you guys think (when would I hit harder), assuming I mostly PvP with people that have around 600 LUC - less luc&more attack, or more luc&less attack?

i think it was in ep 2 or 3 where it used to be 500 luc was 95% crit chance but i may be wrong since i havent played in 2 years but if i am right 95% was the highest and strength would help get crits higher also because it would increase your damage so your general crits would be higher as well

I'd say lower ur Luc to about 600-700 and add rest to STR.

Well, I lowered to 800 luc, 870 dex rest str, attack is around 2550 atm. I didn't test when I hit harder, but judging by what you guys are saying, I'd assume with STR.

Can't go much lower anyhow, I got +600 (probably quite a bit more I kind of forgot lol) LUC from my gear, and only 150 base, so 82 base from the levels.

Ty, and open to more opinions, still ^^

Is that with all the Raid buffs on?

regardlessly, it'll always depend on who your main adversaries are in PvP. If there are uber DEX players out there 870 wont cut it. If there aren't (and as your fury there probably arent many/any) I would pump as much into STR as you can. although Hunters do gain attack from LUC (as well as the extra top end crit increased by 1.5 per LUC)

Full STR in my old set linked up with a double debuff Javelin, would have yielded 2900ish Atk 900 Dex and 600 Luc (at rank 0 in pvp) which would work fine I guess.

One day Ill finish getting 70 on my Hunter lol

Out of my own experience ive noticed that if u add more luc past 475 (Max crit rate; 95%) it just slightly increases ur critical demage, however by adding STR u get far higher crits than what u would with just luc.

But ofc, if u have max 500luc and fights someone with 800+ luc ull be having a bit of troubles critting caus of the evasion.

Rule of thumb is about 5 luc in pvp cancels out 1 luck on your opponent. In other words, 500 luc on your toon negates 100 luc on theirs in pvp. This becomes a bit of a problem if you try to sit around 500 luc, because you're essentially only fighting with 350-400 Luc, limiting your crit rate. However, the majority of players do not have immense amounts of luc to negate all your crits. The average luc build player has about 1k - 1.5k at best, and if they know how to balance their toons, they are lower.

Str Adds 1 Attack
Luc Adds .3 Attack + after attack calculations of (random # from 0 -1.5 per luc)

If you do the math with an ele I factoring of .5 to 1.4 times damage, to a weak ele, You'll find out if dex is contiguous, and only str and luc move, Str and Luc Builds Both have about the Same maximum damage.
The Luc Build will have a lower minimum damage than str though, so for averaging damage str is better. For rec builds, the luc would be better.

However, On Ele II, The Damage Factor Increases by 1.8. That factor is not reflected in the second part of Luc's damage contribution, because it is added after defense calcs. This makes Str by far more helpful, because the Ele II affects the damage wholey.

I say 600 -800 luc from linking, Full str after 900 dex. That'll make you a pretty decent build.
