25 Sep Stat Allocation for DPS by Raging-Rondo

Published in Circle Of Enmity Guild

I have been asked by a few people in my guild to share how I allocate my stats to optimize DPS. This is not something that I can do 100% for all DPS classes. What I can do is share my general line of thought on how to optimize my stats to do as much DPS as possible. I myself play a Mercenary Pyrotech when I do my DPS and in general in this game most stat allocation is very similar for all DPS classes. I will make this as simple as possible by making a step by step guide in order to opimize your gear.

 

(When I say main stat I am refering to Aim, Willpower, Strength, and Cunning)

 

1) Do you have best stat Ear/Implants? (to answer this question read the 2 steps)

         a) If yes move on to next step

                

         b) If no do Flashpoints/Group Finder/Operations to recieve ultimate coms so that you can buy your Implants and Earpiece. If you have 100% accuracy with gear other then Ear and Implants get (Power+Surge) Ear/Implants. If you do not have 100% Accuracy get (Power+Accuracy) Ear/Implants

 

Why do I tell you to get your Ear/Implant first? This is actually a very simple question to answer. The reason why I tell you to get those pieces first is because on every other piece of gear you can change the stat allocation. On ear and Implants you can not do that. This is why I tell you to get those pieces first. After you get the Ear/Implant you can build your gear stat allocation around your Ear/Implants. Then when you get a best in slot token drop for Ear/Implant you will just need to swap out the good for the one you got as a place holder and your end of game gearing becomes that much easier.

 

2) Are you at 100% ranged or melee Accuracy?

  

          a) If yes move on to the next step

         
          b) If no get (Advanced Initiative Enhancments) of any level from 28 - 34 in order to get your accuracy to that level

 

These enhancments can either be found through doing old content 55 operations or the lower level ones are relatively cheap on any GTN.

 

3) Is your Surge around 72% - 75% (500 - 580 Surge give or take for your class)

 

         a) If yes move on to the next step

 

         b) If no replace the rest of your enhancements with 2 Advanced Battle Enhancments (Crit+Surge) level 28 - 34 and the rest Advanced Adept Enhancements (Power+Surge) level 28-34.

 

These enhancments can either be found through doing old content 55 operations or the lower level ones are relatively cheap on any GTN.

 

While you are following these steps on your DPS you can get BiS Crit Mods to make up for the two Advanced Battle Enhancements I am calling for. These will be found in token gear in all level 55 operations. These are all different for classes because they have class based main stat on them so this will be up to your discretion to figure out. You will know them because they will have higher Main and Secondary stats then the endurance on the item. If this is not an issue then the rest of your Mods should be Power+Main Stat.
