3. 100% Critical Chance Build

AC Odyssey multi-million critical chance hit. 

Intro and Overview

This build, created by JorRaptor of YouTube, enhances critical chance by a whopping 100% and is effective for hunter and assassin classes. Critical chance is one of the most powerful modifiers of the entire game, adding significant damage to all attacks, even against the strongest of enemies. With certain items having their own critical chance bonuses, this build capitalizes on the additional critical chance engravings that can be added to each item.

What the 100% Critical Chance Build Excels In

  • This build is perfect for any player who wants to rush into battle and deal a ton of damage upfront before enemies have a chance to retaliate. 
  • This build is especially ideal for a player who focuses on ranged combat, as many of the critical chance engravings and perks involve full health.
  • This build is great for creating when you’ve progressed well into the game, as you’ll rely on building up critical perks in your warrior, hunter, and assassin masteries.
