Stat Summaries

Expertise Rating: Increases your PvP Damage Boost, PvP Healing Boost, and PvP Damage Reduction. Expertise Rating is a PvP only stat and does not increase your performance in PvE gameplay. The value of Expertise Rating caps at 2018 Expertise Rating which provides 60% PvP Damage Boost, 35% PvP Healing Boost, and 37.5% PvP Damage Reduction.

Cunning: Increases the damage and healing done by your abilities and slightly improves your Critical Chance.

Accuracy Rating: Increases the chance that your attacks will successfully hit the target. Normal attacks (Ranged/Melee) start with a base chance to hit of 90% and special attacks (Force/Tech) start with a 100% chance to hit. Based on their class, players have a 5-10% Defense Chance which can be offset by 5-10% Bonus Accuracy for a total of 95-100% Ranged/Melee Accuracy and 105-110% Force/Tech Accuracy. 5% Bonus Accuracy, or 105% Force/Tech Accuracy, is the optimal amount to obtain for PvP.

Critical Rating: Increases your chance for scoring a critical hit. A base critical hit does an additional 50% damage/healing for a minimum of 150% damage/healing on a critical attack.

Surge Rating: Increases the multiplier for damage done by a critical hit. Surge increases the amount of additional damage/healing done by a critical hit by up to an additional 50% damage/healing for critical hits that do up to 200% damage/healing.

Power/Tech Power: Increases the damage/healing done by your abilities.
