Do Critical Hit Effects Trigger Before or After Damage?


Recommended Posts

When using opcode 341, is the resource applied before or after the damage is calculated? For example, let's say I wanted to create an ability that causes critical hits to deal x4 damage instead of x2 by creating a brief 200% bonus damage effect that triggers for critical hits only. Would this create the desired outcome? If so, would it be better to use opcode 73 or 332 for the bonus?

Thanks in advance!

Did you try it to see when it triggers, if before or after?

I think I did the experiment with the backstab effect, and it was only applying after, so no chance of altering the damage. I imagine it will be the same with the critical hit.

Sadly, it does appear to trigger after. If anyone else knows of a way to make this work (3x, 4x, etc. critical hit damage), I would very much appreciate your insight :)
