Critical rate

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.
(Redirected from Crit)

This page is about the weapon attribute. For the random increase in damage that this rate determines, see critical hit.


Critical rate (also displayed as "Critical", "Crt", or "Clt") is a weapon attribute present throughout the Fire Emblem series. It, in part, determines the likelyhood of a unit landing a critical hit.

The minimum critical rate for a weapon is 0, though many weapons have higher rates; a series of weapons, most of which have "Killer" at the start of their names, are known for above-average critical rates, the most prominent being the Killing Edge. Additionally, certain weapons in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Awakening, and Fates, mostly bronze weapons, prevent their users from preforming a critical hit at all.

Calculations

In all of its appearances, critical rate is solely used in the calculation of a unit's base critical hit rate; referred to here as weapon crit to avoid confusion.
