So what would be better? Considering you always get a crit and are Hitting from behind: 60 base damage attack + 500% elemental damage boost ->with EITHER 50% crit bonus OR 50%backstab bonus. Assuming the target has 0 resist. What would the damages be..? I want to finally know which would be better...
You'd hit for 507 on backstab dmg instance, but CHD va Backstab bonus is just dependant on if you crit more or get backstab more.
This is just assuming you hit from the back AND crit. As in which can pontentially do the most damage
You can't really ask this like HateSpawn said a few posts prior. It's very dependent on how many critical hits you have, how easy you can reach backstab, and your class.
As a Xelor for example, I can easily reach backstab and have 50% CH, but I benefit more from the backstab because of dial giving it to me easily. I have backstab more than 50% of the time, while I'll only critical hit 50% of the time. But then of course, I can critical hit in either situation of backstab or non-backstab, while if I cannot reach backstab, then I can only benefit from critical hit damage and not backstab damage.
A Sram may always benefit more from backstab, since they generally can attack from the back in most occasions. That doesn't mean CH damage isn't beneficial too, because it is.
Those who aim for high CH will always find CHD a good supplementary source of damage. Those who are aiming to strike from the rear consistently will find the backstab damage is more beneficial to them.
It's entirely situational, but my vote goes to CHD in general terms.
