Critical strike & Critical chance?!?!

What is the difference between +x% critical strike and +x% critical chance?

Really?
#3BoxOfBoxesPosted 3/8/2011 8:32:31 PM
same thing.

Crit DAMAGE is different, however.

Critical chance is the percent of your attacks that strike for a critical hit. Without any runes or equipment or masteries, your critical chance is 0%.

Critical hits usually do 200% damage (twice as much as a normal autoattack). Critical strike percent increases this 200% so your critical hits do more damage. So the infinity edge makes all your critical strikes do 250% normal damage instead of only 200%. So critical strike increase doesn't help you if you don't have any critical chance.

critical chance is the percent chance you have to crit; your 3rd attack has 20% critical chance

critical strike is the crit itself; your 3rd attack was a critical strike

They used a different word because they are have two separate meanings.

My reply was to the poster who said they are the same. So it is not. Ok I get it now. Thx.

Ok another question for the item Executioner's Calling, it states:

+18% Lifesteal +15% Critical Strike Chance UNIQUE Passive: On hit, you cause 4 damage per second for 8 seconds. UNIQUE Active: Inflicts target enemy champion with Grievous Wound, causing 50% reduced healing and regeneration for...

That +15% Critical Strike Chance. I am guesssing and pretty sure it increases the chance to crit, am i right? Is that like a typo? While Yoummu item just says +15% Critical Chance.

Yeah, those are both the same, they will increase the number of times you strike critically.
