Official M17 - Critter Critical Damage

There has been an issue since M16 launched where critters don't do additional damage when they critical hit a player.

This has been adjusted with M17 so that they do 50% more damage when they crit.

This could affect the balance of some of the critters in the game so if you see any critter who's attacks (especially non-splat or non-avoidable attacks) are now dealing critical damage too high to deal with, please report it here so that we can investigate.

    You can start with Intellect Devourers. I've taken to terminating them first whenever I see them. Only after they have been blasted into atoms do I worry about the Illithids.

    Check the posts in the Patch note thread, the increasead damage of the critters is near 300%. I was testing the changes in the early levels of the campaing as new player, Blacklake is almost imposible to do, if you not are a tank, with that crit severity. Reduce it or better: please remove it. Don't do the same mistakes as mod 16.

    same thing happening with eye of grummish and other critters in tower district as new player area, it should not take 2 muinits to kill one enimy especialy in an area intened for brand new players.

    That is a bug that is entirely unrelated to the critical severity change. There should be a fix for that this week.

    queued up Kessels retreat with a friend private. I was Arbiter they were Devout. everything was smooth until we got to the bear riders, they were tearing me up, i died 3-4 times to the first pack of them they do too much damage i think. after that no real issues except enemies seem to have excessive HP....the boss Didn't really do any damage, fight was slow and after a few minutes kinda boring but it was a nice change to actually have to do mechanics and more fun then just one shotting kessel ever was, we took out the Beholders then I tanked and dps'd him and for about 5 minutes while my friend kept the golems busy and healed me

    Let me quess... a run with no tank, and then complaining they do too much damage ?

    isn't that obvious from the context? it's KR. I tank orcus, ras nsi and trobriand as arbiter, and with akar kessel doing so little damage there is definately something up if these trash mobs are nearly 1 shotting me.
    My guess is that you should make video evidence of what youre stating here... It would help the Dev's more than what it is doing now..
