Mastery of Pain clarification

#1
Latest Patch Notes (April 4th):
-- without RAs critical damage is now 30% against players and 55% against npcs
-- Mastery of Pain and Wild Power and Falcon Eye now give a reduced crit chance but also increase the critical damage percent, 20% at level 9, same scaling as aom
Latest Patch Notes (April 6th):
- crit ras no longer increase the critical bonus %
- crit ras now scale like mastery of blocking, ending at 25% at level 9

I'm pretty dumb about this stuff, maybe someone could clarify how the patch from the 6th affects the patch from the 4th? Is it still worth it for a zerk to go MoP9?

Thanks :)

in the first patch you could increase the crit chance and the crit dmg.
in the second patch they removed the increase of crit dmg and increase the crit chance.

well as a zerk after det9 you dont have much left than mopain, so imo its still worth even though it might be nerfed at this point

Damage: Always 30% (think bearmode for zerkers still 50%?) *Nothing beyond bearmode affects this any more

Chance to crit: Base 10% + RA points

RA scale is reduced. +2% at MoP1,+25% at MoP9
i thought this scaling how like aom? +max 20% crit chance + crit dmg? doing mop only now influence the crit chance but not the crit dmg?

scaling is like mastery of blocking: 2 4 6 9 12 15 18 21 25
so with mop9 you end up with 35% crit chance

At this point they might as well get rid of crits and give everyone a flat 3% damage boost, since they hate the RNG so much. Over time it's equal to their new crit patch anyways.
