I've never fully understood the benefit of Wrathful Determinaton. I'm not being snarky. Could someone explain how it is beneficial compared to keeping Weapon Master and putting a few thousand into power over crit?

Weapon master with feats appears to give about 15% additional crit, and if everything else is max'ed you can then add on 5000-10,000 extra power (these are not exact numbers, just a suggestion of what can be done.)

    Since WD gives a % damage buff, it is better than extra stats (it replaces crit, which as you say can be moved over to power) if you have tons of stats. The real clincher is OP and DC power sharing, because it substantially devalues your 5-10k extra power, but % buff from WD retains it's value.

    The general wisdom is to keep WM as long as you're working on your gear / missing crit. Once you've capped crit from other places, WD provides the next step up.

    Thanks for the discussion. I did some light respeccing back to high 90s on crit and Wrathful. But it hurts my epeen to give up 50K power standing still! :smile:

    -w- T’is Why my Power is the way it is, such a small increase of Damage if I change it, plus I like 100% crit I hate seeing non-crits. Cx

    With the Bonding nerf I can't see a way of using Wrathful Determination without Swordmaster considering you need 100% crit. WD is just another niche power that is only good if you are BiS and the have right setup. Don't bother with it if you're not at 100% crit w/o SM.

    The bonding nerf has us all playing 52 card pickup with our stats. Spend a couple of years building and balancing stats--and then whoosh, a tornado rips through!
