We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.

Crit. Power

From Stardew Valley Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Crit. Power (short for Critical Power) is a Combat statistic. When you hit a critical strike, this stat will deal additional damage to your enemy.

A critical strike in itself does additional damage to an enemy. A special sound plays when hitting a critical strike, and the damage numbers that pop up show the greater damage amount. Bonus damage done by critical strikes is equal to base damage × (3 + Crit. Power / 50).


  • A normal attack using the Dark Sword can do 10-30 damage.
  • Assuming a normal attack has a base damage value of 18 on a bat with a defense value of 1 would result in 17 damage.
  • As the dark sword has 25 crit power, this would result in 18×(3+25/50) bonus damage which would make the final damage 18×(3+25/50)=63 damage.
  • The Desperado Profession would further increase this damage by 2x to 126 in Stardew Valley 1.5 (used to be 3x in Stardew Valley 1.4).

How the critical hit chance works is discussed in Combat#Critical_hit.
