Diablo – Is phalanx damage affected by critical hit chance or damage


This reddit post suggests that critical hit chance carries over to your WD pets but critical hit damage is fixed at 50%. Is this the case for 2.1 Phalanx bowmen?

I noticed some Lord Commander Phalanx builds stacking crit damage. Are they misinformed or has this changed?

This Reddit post is 5 month old. Since patch 2.0.4 (General) :

All pets, including Witch Doctor and Demon Hunter pets, now scale their damage with Critical Hit Damage

The 50% cap has been removed and now pets can crit for your full Critical Hit Damage.
