    Why don't pro's build crit?

    After looking at several pro builds, I don't see them building crit too often if at all.

    The standard build appears to be:

    1) Ninja/War Tabbi
    2) Dev Gauntlet
    3) Exe
    4) Quins
    5) Bane
    6) Asi

    Is this because they play conquest? Is crit not good on conquest because of the cost?

    Thoughts?
    HirezAmanda is ridiculous.

    Crit is good for killing bursting squishies that have no defense at all so they would rather have high sustain build for prolonged team fights and engagements, getting their carry back to near full health with one buff camp. Basically no one at that level of play is stupid enough to not counter the highest dps god on their team and only one build doesn't effectively kill themselves in under 3 seconds when someone pops thorns. Crit is also extremely expensive and doesn't lead to good fights until it comes completely online.

    Pros do build crit. Depending on the matchups you can see flexible penetration builds or you can see a double shuriken build with Deathbringer as the final purchase.

    But when matches they are in during the SPL consist of multiple bulky frontliners (be it bruiser assassins, guardians, or warriors) that buy Nemeian Lion and Thorns in attempt to turn the tables against them along with their credulous base damage, they tend to flex into a more consistent build based on penetration and lifesteal so they can better control the tanks. It also helps that the Qins passive is separate damage from your AA's, so it can't be reflected by Nemeian.

    However I haven't seen Asi built at all. Double lifesteal is a very very nitch purchase, when something has upgraded Thorns your double lifesteal will be greatly hindered. Devo Gloves sustain with a crit build is also enough by itself in terms of sustain really.

    More farm to be had, Deathbringer and Poison Star got reduced costs, and all the lifesteal items were buffed.

    Also crit isnt good vs phoenix and towers which is another reason crit is not as good in conq as in other modes.

    Exe and Qins as well, at least crit is very good against GF/FG while Qins completely sucks here.

    1) Ninja/War Tabbi
    2) Dev Gauntlet
    3) Exe
    4) Quins
    5) Bane
    6) Asi
    Thats completely pointless. I dunno what they are doing.

    1) Exe and Titans Bane in one build is never a good idea
    2) Lifesteal without crit is much less efficient
    3) Bad damage vs Bosses
    4) Double/triple crit Hunter can easily solo Hunter with this build

    The only advantage is versus Tanks which specially for Hunters bought Thorns and Nemean but then again why would you have double lifesteal without crit?

    For me its more a troll build.
