Crushing Blow Information

Crushing Blow is a combat mechanic that appears as a Chance on Hit mod on several items. The game will roll for the chance for Crushing Blow to occur on every eligible melee or ranged attack. If the effect does occur, it reduces the attack's target health by a measured percentage. 

Crushing Blow reduces the current remaining Life of the target by 1/4 for melee attacks and 1/8 for ranged attacks on common Enemies. This varies according to the target.
On player or Hirelings, melee attacks deal 1/10 and ranged attacks deal 1/20
On Champion, Unique or Bosses, melee attacks deal 1/8 and ranged attacks deal 1/16.

Crushing Blow is most effective when the target is at high life, and becomes less and less useful as the target's health starts to decrease. It is important to note that, Crushing Blow is not limited to a maximum of 50% health reduction in Hell difficulty. 

Crushing Blow is less effective when there are more players in the game. For example if there are four players the monster's health is multiplied by 4, but the melee attack will only remove 1/16 of the health. 

It is possible to get up to 100% chance for a Crushing Blow. You get one chance on each swing, and your chances from your individual items are added together.

Amplify Damage and Decrepify do not affect Crushing Blow, beyond reducing the Enemies physical resistance to zero.
