What spell crit applies to

Spell critical hit was added to the Kingdom following the rock monster invasion of August 2009, and gave spell slingers the possibility of a critical effect with their combat spells. This mechanic is different from melee critical hit in several ways, and modifiers that affect critical hit do not appear to apply to spells, and vice versa, even on items that would be caster friendly (such as clockwork staff).

Spell crit only applies to combat spells. It does not apply to:

A critical hit with a spell roughly doubles its effectiveness. For spells that deal damage, the base damage and the bonus damage from Mysticality are doubled (but not Bonus Spell Damage) and doubles the damage cap if it has one. Healing spells will heal for double the amount on a critical heal. Entangling noodles is the only exception to this rule. A "Critical Noodle!" stuns for 1 extra round, rather than doubling the effect.


Here's a comprehensive list of everything in the game that provides an increased chance of getting a critical hit.

Normal critical hit chance is 9%. Items that add a percentage to critical hit, add to that 9% base rate. For example, an item that grants "+3% chance of Critical Hit" increases base critical hit chance to 12%. That percentage is then multiplied by any multiplier bonuses, or would be, assuming spell crit functions like melee crit. As none of the currently implemented Critical Spell Chance items provide multiplier bonuses, this remains to be seen.
