There aren't any up-to-date gunner guides either x_x

When actually geared (with accessory etchings), crit is better because you can hit crit cap with less crit items, meaning you get more value off power jewelry.

No it's not. Most pieces of power are more efficient. You get 21 Power from an accessory but only 40 Crit Factor. 2:1 would be 20 Power instead.

I don't think you quite understood what I said, because I said that items like jewelry offer a worse crit:power ratio than innerwear, thus getting your crit from innerwear where the crit ratio is better than on jewelry is always going to be more optimal than getting crit from somewhere like a ring has a ratio skewed towards power.

I even said most jewelry offers a 1.9:1 crit:power ratio, just to clear it up. Which is correct, a T1 ring gives either 38 crit, or 20 power, which is a 1.9:1 crit:power ratio.

why do gunners need so little crit?

I'm no theorycrafter, but when I follow the guides reccs on crit (+150 more or less) everything works better. The rule seems to be you should be critting everytime by the sixth hit of BF.

It's possible because of the amazing glyphs available for helping crit on key gunner skills.

1. Arcane Barrage crits 100%.

2. Balder's Vengeance crits 100%.

3. Bombardment and Mana Missiles both have crit glyphs and they do crit frequently with just the right amount.

4. With proper rotation and play, the explosion of Time Bomb and every Burst Fire hit after the sixth fire will always crit.

That's pretty much more than half of your DPS (probably even 3/4ths of your total DPS).

It's more accurate to say that they do need a certain amount of crit; but yes, compared to most classes, the number they go for is relatively 'little'.

ah, so would power be more of a thing then for gunner?

After a certain number of crit factor, yes.

Be aware that castanic gunners need less critical factor than elins/elves.

I've been told and have practiced running an elf gunner utilizing crit factor averages between 180-215 depending on whether or not a mystic or priest is present.

As far as the answer to the question, depending on your class, you will need to find a way to roll your equipment that gives you a rough 180-215 crit factor but maximizes your power.

I personally use the power inner armor (for pvp because I can't afford the crit inner at the moment),and I do rather fine. But, as stated previously, there are better ways to achieve this to maximize the power.

It would be rather tedious to have a specific build for a particular party or a particular dungeon, but people do it.
