    I am trying to weigh crit versus damage on the horn (25%crit vs 37% damage ish on mine).
    Clearly the damage horn would give a higher average damage, but the woad raiders strategy seems to favor charge, burst and die rather than living long enough to average out the damage (Does charges even crit?).
    Is it worth to sacrifice 12-13% average damage to focus on the strategy (like some archers sacrifice damage for range even if not quantified on the item in this case)?

    When I play, I prefer crit and feel it to be more effective, but I might be biased.

    What is the concensus on this if there's one?

    Full damage in woads is best in my opinion. I used to have critical on them when I first leveled them up but I noticed a difference when I switched to full damage. Best thing to do is run a quest twice (mileto would be perfect for this) with both gears and see for yourself.

    Yeah, Im pondering this with lvl 40 30% crit/life advisor active and it increases my bias toward focusing on crit!
    I ran a couple games alternating crit and damage and I felt that the explosiveness nature of crit made more woads survive to strike another time because they oneshot them before they oneshot us.
    While hitting walls and castle, it was hard to tell the difference, but it was probably better with higher average damage.

    Nice, how high the hp go?
    It sounds to go in an opposite direction of the strategy of a stream of expendable units tho, but i bet it works anyway!

    Hp gear on woads is not a good idea. They are a low hp unit, they do high damage and die fast, so damage gear makes more sense for them.

    Certain units are better DPS and others are better used as tanks. You would not outfit your ranged units to tank for example. A lower HP unit with a huge boost in HP is still a low HP unit. But, a unit with high HP with a huge HP bonus is a massive high HP unit. A Woad is not in a good starting position to be outfitted to tank. Far better to take advantage of the damage and crit they do

    well yes but that not a reason to die vs a leg archer or vs massive building arrows when you go mass woad with vs building dmg+ augur ritual strat

    Whatever works for you. I was just trying to explain better why finishedblock said what she did. Makes perfect sense. 1 boosted 75% is 1.75, 100 boosted by 75% is 175, but, If the HP woads are working for you, that is all that matters ;)

    So, Is this some kind of placebo effect?
    If I think my build is good, I will have higher morale and play better thus making my build seem better than it really is.
    I will consider this when testing further!
