Nice guide, what wave of the endless arena did you get to?

This is a very nice build, and the first FG build I’ve seen that rivals other awesome builds. I’ve been trying this out and it’s working great but I have one question:
Why “Melee Critical Strike Chance” on the sword rather than just “Critical Strike Chance”? Looking at them, they are both prefixes but the “Critical Strike Chance” has a much higher rating for each tier. Am I missing something with the affixes?

the “melee critical strike chance” adds directly to the base crit chance, while the “increased critical strike chance” multiplies the base.

base crit chance is 5%, so adding +5% crit chance is equivalent of a 100% increased crit chance mod. in short, it’s way more impactful.
