What triggers a critical hit in WFRP 3rd edition?
Critical hits can be triggered from three sources:
There are a few caveats with critical hits:
Rolling the correct number of symbols on the dice, as required by the technique used.
A Sigmar's Commet can always be used to trigger the critical hit.
Some weapons have specific numbers of Eagle Symbols or Axe Symbols to generate a critical, as listed in the weapon data or on the action card. For example, the card Thundering Shot states 3 axes does critical damage. So, for such a shot, either a Comet or 3 axes means doing a critical.
