I think you got confused somewhere. It doesn't matter where the other critH and critD comes from. What matters is that, on a weapon, you're being offered 10 CritD for every single CritH. So, when choosing a weapon, if they're both equally valuable, you should go for the CritD, because you're getting more of it --10 times more. In fact, you should only choose critH --when choosing a weapon!!-- when adding a single point of CritH increases your damage more than 10 times adding a single point of critD. How much more a single point of CritH or CritD adds to your damage, is a function of the ratio of your current values.
