With the new addition of the Razor trait are critical chance badges now useful on melee characters, specifically warriors? Normally I use 3 DR and 3 damage badges but now I'm wondering if adding a CC badge is worthwhile. What are ideal melee badges now?

Don't overdo it though, cc is easy to overshoot. 90% is easy...

In very high lvl play.

The gold razor trait can give your melee 40.5% chance at critical, 4.5% regular and 55% at body-shots. Doing a critical means doing 50% extra damage, add 60% from destructive. That is a nice dage boost of 110% extra damage. A nice damage% badge of say 15% can boost that up to 210*1.15=241.5

Making that 15% boost actually 31.5%, 40% of the time. Or 2 out of 5. Or hit 5 walkers, kill 2 of them...

90% of 45% is 40.5% chance at crit.

It can't be crit unless non-bodyshot. But when non-bodyshot is achieved it can be.

9331,765It seems there is 10% cc, and now 20% for warriors.

Luck just adds to that, so 40% luck can bring it to 50 or 60.

Then powerstrike can finish it of.

Accurate on a weapon too.

Or any leader ability.

So imagine warrior.

20% inherent

20% luck on survivor or weapon

If you use powerstrike cc badges are moot...

Pick your poison.

Luck can be 40%+

20% inherent on warrior, 10% on others.

Accurate can be 15%

Powerstrike can be 40%+

Leadership by carol is huge.

9331,404@jimmorrison369 makes a good point about maxing crit chance on warriors but since Michonne has neither power strike or lucky a CC badge makes complete sense on her. Plus it means you can have good crit chance without having to sacrifice a weapon slot.
