Essentially, I went to Theramore, and stood in the middle of the 6 dummies near the castle. My rotation was [Frost Nova, Blizzard, Blizzard] x 3, as to simulate an AoE grinding sequence.
See the Recount below. Note that the relevant stats are 18% crit with Molten Armor on and ~1k spell power.
50% crit rate CONFIRMED. Freaking sweet. Kings of AoE? I think so.
Went all out on Curator, but managed to discover that Ghost hit was indeed removed in this patch.
10% miss rate confirms it.
Overall, about the same damage as before; but once I hit cap, that shouldn't be such a problem.
In a way, I'm a little too lazy to gem/gear up some +Hit...Maybe I'll respec arcane for fun. Everyone's into Frost nowadays, and Larísa's gone back to her standby with fire, so maybe Arcane would be a nice chage of pace. I don't know what I'll ever do without Squirtle, being there for me almost half the time.
