Critical and Surge caps!

After parsing as much as I could and while I was trying to adjust my stats to optimal. I decide to post the results of my research and the things that I find in the internet.

First of all, I'll have to determine what cap is. One rating is caped when it has reached the maximum number/percentage. For example reach 100% critical chance, when all of your attacks are critical. As you already know most of the rating have a diminishing scaling when you stack them. What I'm going talk now is soft cap. Soft cap is the point where a stat suddenly becomes less useful and another stat becomes more valuable.

Here is the graph that I found on mmo-mechanics:

As you can see, from a point and further, stats like surge and critical etc have a breakpoint, when if it reached, it stops to be optimal. Here:


Surge: 300 rating
Critical: 450 rating

An example to what soft cap, is surge rating. At 200 rating, you have 72% critical multiplier whereas 250 rating rise it to 76%. That means that the 50 rating that is spend to surge could be another stat that would benefit you more.

A general small guide to gear up is:

Accuracy, up until 100% cap
Surge, up until 300
Crit, up until 450

Power on the other hand has no cap. In general you should know that power boost your baseline attack/heal and is a stat that increase your performance directly. I would just healer to focus more to power than surge/critical as they should be depended on RNG critical heals.

Finally, a small tip. You can get critical not only from your critical rating and your main stat but also from some of the base stats of other classes.

WARRIOR/KNIGHT: Strength AND Willpower

So, if you are a min-maxer, don't forget to add some more datacrons to your hunting!


  1. This chart is wrong...

  2. omfg, thanks a lot!

  3. Awesome bro, thanks so much for this! The graph is nice, adds validity! Thanks again!

  4. Using an agency is now simpler than it has ever been before. Simply really have to contact the agency merely find online and think about the men who have been around the world and who happen to be offering a sizegenetics. You can actually find a handful of men whom you were truly interested in. Do not forget to stop by the prices for gay sizegenetics in addition to the services that people will perform. You happen to be bound to find someone who is just your type in case you go online and have a look at what is available in an agency that provides male sizegenetics.

  5. Yeah your chart is so wrong, especually as you have put cunning for bounty hunter and trooper when thats an IA/smuggler main stat

    1. you obviously didnt read what he's written, re-read then keep your stupid comments to yourself
