Critical is high because of the buffs to critical stats and the nerfs to critical evade, this only needs to be reverted, or come to an in-between, and everything would be fine, no one would complain.
-SKI Used to be 0.5 crit per 1 SKI.
-Now SKI is 1 crit per 1 SKI
-LUC used to be 0.5 crit per 1 LUC
-now LUC is 1 crit per 1 LUC
-DEF used to be 0.5 crit evade per 1 DEF
-now it doesn't add any crit evade.
My only solution for an in-between of the two, similar to how you handled Aptitude, is that you could make SKI 1:1 for crit, but LUC as 1:2 for crit (Or vice versa)
While giving DEF it's crit evade back, a tank generally doesn't build LUC, nor do they really build much faith either.
This way that critical hits are not (almost always) 100%+
SKI was always 1 Critical per point.
Luck was 0.5 Critical per point, this did get increased.
Defense used to give Critical Evade, but Faith gives twice as much Critical Evade as before, so it balances out there.
As far as adjustments to stats, I could see SKI getting its Critical cut to 0.5 per point, since it's already a good stat and has other benefits now. This does leave Critical inferior statistically to Critical Evade (2 Critical Evade from FAI+LUC, 1.5 Critical from SKI+LUC), but it balances out when you take skills and the weapon's innate Critical into account. That said, I will probably go through the skills that increase Critical and lower them a bit with a few exceptions.
