The Unofficial Star Wars the Old Republic Strategy Guide Combat Stats This section gets a bit more complicated since the stats differ under varying circumstances and not readily available until your later levels when they really start to make a difference First off we ll look at offensive combat stats Power is a stat that works for all classes in the same way each point gives 0 2 damage Accuracy increases your chance of hitting the target which is very important for dual wielding classes that have a higher hit penalty Critical Rating increases your chance to critically hit with an attack and you gain 0 11 per point Surge is the final combat stat that increases the actual value of your critical hit Finally we have Alacrity which works to decrease your casting speed You won t find much on any gear until you re level 30 though Defensive stats are ones meant to make you survive High armor is better as it absorbs more damage and it works on a logarithmic scale where there are reduced benefits the more you have Still for the time being the more armor you have the better off you ll be taking damage You can Parry melee attacks Deflect ranged attacks and resist Force and Tech attacks Each of these has their own defensive stat Reference Table Stat Effect Strength 0 2 Melee Damage 0 17 Healing Bonus 0 02 Melee Critical Chance Presence 5 Companion Hit Points 0 2 Companion Damage 0 14 Companion Healing Aim 0 2 Ranged Damage 70

The Unofficial Star Wars the Old Republic Strategy Guide Combat Basics Aside from the numbers above there are some basic elements that need to be understood as to how combat and abilities function in game If you have past MMO experience likely you have theories as to how the game should work Hopefully this section sheds some light on it Attacks are done with two rolls the first of which determines if the strike hits misses is dodged or is parried reflected The second roll determines if a hit is a shield crit or normal attack Important to note that crit takes priority over shields and shields over hit Crit Shield Hit This means that if your crit is high enough the enemy will not be able to shield Dodged and Parried Reflected attacks deal no damage while Shielded attacks are absorbed based on your shield rating Enemies seem to have a base 10 defense chance Off hand damage does not include bonuses and will do less damage than the main hand attack Armor works against Kinetic and Energy damage but not Elemental or Internal with a 75 cap Basic abilities with no cost accuracy is 90 for main hand and 57 for off hand attacks Special attacks have a base of 100 for main hand and 67 for off hand If your accuracy rating is above 100 then you will reduce the defense chance of the target This gives a cap of 110 on most enemies Threat appears to be stolen at 110 in melee range and 130 at range Healing awards 50 threat of the damage healed so overhealing does not generate more threat Threat modifiers seem to add 50 threat 72

The Unofficial Star Wars the Old Republic Strategy Guide DoT attacks do not deal damage immediately unless the ability expressly states that it does For example Affliction will not deal immediate damage but Crushing Darkness will DoTs do not interrupt any action but capture points in PvP You can channel with no impact if you have multiple DoTs on you DoTs clip meaning that if you re apply the ability on an enemy the timer resets based on the new cast it does not increase the existing duration Stat boosts are additive most specifically Surge and Crit damage If you have a skill that adds Critical Strike damage such as Flame Surge add it to your current Surge value A surge rating of 0 gives a critical bonus damage of 50 The Global Cooldown for all abilities is set at 1 5 seconds You can queue abilities with a default of 0 5s up to 5 seconds as set in your options This allows you to pre cast an ability to ensure maximum damage for example clicking at 1 3 seconds of the GCD will ensure the ability is executed at 1 5 seconds If you were to set the queue to 0 you would have to repeatedly click the ability to ensure it activated precisely at 1 5 seconds Alacrity reduces activation time and channeling time If alacrity reduces the activation time of an ability below the GCD of 1 5s then the GCD is also reduced For example Charged Bolts has a 1 5s activation time If your alacrity brought the activation time to 1 3 seconds the GCD would also drop to 1 3 seconds This does not apply to instant abilities Alacrity does not increase channel damage it simply decreases the tick duration and therefore overall duration Alacrity therefore has little value for classes with multiple instant abilities tanks and great benefit to classes with activation times and channeling times ranged damage Class Stats At this point we can start looking at the stats that are appropriate for a given class or more specifically role within an advanced class As you level you ll notice that one of your stats is naturally higher than the others this is normal due to the itemization in the game Knight Warrior Strength Consular Inquisitor Wisdom Smuggler Imperial Agent Cunning Trooper Bounty Hunter Aim 73

The Unofficial Star Wars the Old Republic Strategy Guide Secondary stat value varies depending on a few factors Power and Crit are a benefit to everyone especially those with high damage coefficients long duration or long activation Surge increases in value depending on your crit chance It is better to focus on increasing your crit rate to about 30 before you start putting a lot of value into Surge Alacrity has reduced value for tanks and melee characters and increased value for ranged attackers and healers due to the latter two having many abilities with activation times Defensive stats defense armor endurance shield are only of value to tanks Finally Accuracy provides a direct benefit up until 110 chance to hit as enemies have a base 10 defense chance Therefore the cap for Accuracy is 110 More specifically you are like to find value on the following stats There will be variances within given skill trees but you can use this as a general guideline Note Classes with only 1 weapon have a default accuracy rating of 100 on special attacks those that consume resources Classes with special attacks that hit with the off hand 2 blasters or 2 lightsabers have a base accuracy of 67 for the off hand Since the off hand attack does less damage than the main hand attack there is no immediate need to focus on raising this to 110 Advanced Class Role Priority Guardian Juggernaut Damage Strength Accuracy until cap Power Crit Surge Tank Strength Accuracy until cap Endurance Defense Armor Sentinel Marauder Damage Strength Accuracy until cap Power Crit Surge Sage Sorcerer Healer Willpower Power Alacrity Crit Surge Damage Willpower Accuracy until cap Power Crit Surge Tank Willpower Accuracy until cap Endurance Defense Shield Damage Willpower Accuracy until cap Power Surge Crit Gunslinger Sniper Damage Cunning Accuracy until cap Power Crit Surge Scoundrel Operative Healer Cunning Power Alacrity Crit Surge Shadow Assassin 74
