Something new that this patch brought us is the text "added X% to strike damage" instead prior "add x% damage"

 

Does that mean the multipliers are calculated on the base damage before the crits? Is it documented anywhere?

Strike damage is any direct/instant damage or more or less anything that isn't condition damage (Think normal Power based attacks).  This is simply clarification so you know these effects are not increasing "all damage" as they never did that.

Thank you, but my question is the damage is calculated over the base damage before the crit or is calculated over the crit damage. 

If it's the same as before why to change the text.

It is the same as before, it was changed because before it implied that conditions would be increased. Or for example the scrapper rune literally would not even tell you who's or what damage was reduced. ( in this case it is still very unclear too)

Impending steam release clarification for new players plus any new players that join because of EOD expansion. They actually missed some runes.

Right now the major types of damage are strike (power), condition , and life steal (no crit).

I love the fact an engineer was used as an example in this because it would have been advantageous if so but, as usual, a wreck if not. As usual, a wreck. Meanwhile an elementalist farts and drops 8-15K in barrier. running a condi weaver build.

Since no one answered this part of your question:

 

It makes no difference, since they are both multiplicative. The order they are applied doesn't doesn't change the final result.
