Critical Hit Table (4e Variant Rule)
From D&D Wiki
Critical Hit Table
Use this table as stated below in place of the standard maximum damage for critical hits as laid out in 4th edition rules.
Instead of maximum damage, on critical hits, players roll 1d100 and consult this table to see the result of their hit.
Example1: On a critical the 1d100 roll produces a 33 which falls into the 31-40 category. The attack would deal normal damage +1d6 along with ongoing 1d6+2 damage of the same type as the attack. Save ends ongoing damage.
Example2: On a critical the 1d100 roll produces a 88 which falls into the 81-90 category. The attack would deal normal damage +2d6 along with causing the target to grant combat advantage until they end this effect with a save.
