Stat CapsEdit

Only 2 stats are used. Stamina is used by all classes and gives you more hit points. There is no cap on stamina. In addition, each class has a primary stat that affects its damage output and power pool. While the other stats may still be listed on your character sheet, they don't affect your character at all.

Fighters use Strength, Scouts use Agility, Mages use Intelligence, Priests use Wisdom

There is no cap on the power pool gained from your primary stat, but there is a soft cap and diminishing return curves on the damage bonus. From 0 - 1200 on your primary stat, it follows the old diminishing returns curve that's been around since the game first launched. The characteristics of that curve are that you get a pretty good boost up until 800, and then it flattens out until 1200. At 1200 it makes a good jump again as it switches to the new curve. Over 1200, a 30% increase in your primary stat will give you a 10% boost in damage. As you can see, that gets into diminishing returns pretty quickly.

These numbers are for level 90 characters, I'm not sure how it works sub 90. I suspect the old diminishing returns are in effect, which means you could potentially have a big gap below 1200 where you are seeing no gain until you get high enough to enter the new curve.

The +hit points and +power gained from stamina and your primary stat is a static amount per point. It scales up to a final amount of 10.0 @ L90.

Skill CapEdit

  • Skill Cap = 5 * Level
    • Example: A level 70 player has a skill cap of 350, which means that anything higher is considered over the cap. As of GU61 Skills over their cap grant new bonuses.
  1. Example1: A level 70 player has a skill cap of (5*70) or 350.
  2. Example2: A level 80 player has a skill cap of (5*80) or 400.
  3. Example3: A level 90 player has a skill cap of (5*90) or 450.
  4. Example4: A level 95 player has a skill cap of (5*95) or 475

There is no hard cap for Crushing, Slashing, Piercing, or Ranged. These skills are contested against the target's defense and parry. The attacker needs 100 more points in their skill than the defender has in their opposing skill to receive the max amount of accuracy or avoidance based on combat skills. A Ranger would need 600 Ranged Skill to receive max benefit against a target with 500 Defense.

As of GU 61, having weapon skill over the cap now increases your minimum damage amount making it closer to the maximum amount.

As of sometime prior to GU66, the skill caps are not 6.5 per level, but 5 per level. I (Dedith) have tested this out on multiple characters as well. Post on SOE's forums can be found here.

Offensive Skill (Over Base) - Variance Reduction Percentage - ToV Update
+100 - 2%
+1000 - 20%
+2500 - 30%
+5000 - 40%
base = Level x 5; eg. 475 at Level 95
Variance Reduction increases the damage of the "lowest possible" on an ability or auto-attack. The low end is boosted while the high end remains the same.

Regen CapEdit

  • In-combat HP Regen Cap = 3 * Level
  • In-combat HP Regen Cap (from Items) = 3 * Level * 0.5
  • In-combat Power Regen Cap = 1.5 * Level
  • In-combat Power Regen Cap (from Items) = 1.5 * Level * 0.5
    • Example: A level 60 player is decked out in power regen items and has the equivalent of 50 power regen per tick thanks to her items. She is also in a group that has an Illusionist who is giving her another 50 power regen per tick. Since the cap from her items is 1.5*60*0.5=45, she only receives 45 power per tick from her gear. The cap for total power regen at her level is 1.5*60=90. With the 45 power per tick from her items, she would only receive 45 power per tick from her group buffs as well. Any additional buffs or power regen gear would have no effect on her power regen.

Mitigation CapEdit

  • Mitigation Cap = 150 * Level = 75%
    • Mitigation increases result in increasing returns until (52.5 * Level) at which point mitigation suffers from diminishing returns.

Ability Modifier CapEdit

  • Ability Modifier Cap depending on the damage/heal amount of the spell/ca/heals adds 50% of minimum damage
    • The highest amount of Ability Modifier is reached when you have 50% of your highest spell/ca/heal
    • if you have more than that, it doesn't effect your spells/ca/heals any further

Crit Chance CapEdit

  • Crit hits - 100%

Before GU55:

  • 100% crit means that if you are level 80 and your target is level 80 that you can crit 100% of the time if you hit
  • 116% crit means that if you are level 80 and your target is level 88 that you can crit 100% of the time if you hit

After GU55:

  • Crit is no longer contested. 100% crit is 100% crit.

With GU59:

  • 100% crit chance is 100% crit chance if the monster/named doesn't have critial avoidance
  • A mob has 30% critical avoidance => you need 130% crit chance to crit 100% of the time

With GU63: Some zones debuffs your critical chance a lot, and you might need as much as 250-300% or more for those to be able to ensure a critical hit.

recommended CC for CoE:

  • 330cc for Skyshrine contested and Instances
  • 360cc for Sleepers Tomb (easymode)
  • 400cc for Raids and Hardmode

recommended CC for ToV:

  • 500cc for [solo instances?]
  • 600cc for AS (Accursed Sanctum)
  • 650cc for ToV (Temple of Veeshan)

Avoidance CapEdit

  • Avoidance Cap = 80%
    • Base = 80%
    • Blocking = 70%
    • Parry = 70%
    • Deflection = 70%

Block (Non-Brawlers): A Block is based on the player's shield. The higher the protection rating, the higher chance to block. All block that is used by a non-Brawler class is uncontested, meaning it is a straight percentage chance to avoid an incoming attack.

Block (Brawlers): Brawlers have two types of Block. Contested block which is based on their Deflection Skill and level difference and Uncontested Block which is based off of their "Minimum Deflection Chance."

Parry: A parry is generally a contested roll based on the defender's parry skill and level compared against the attacker's weapon skill and level.

Riposte: There is a chance that any Parry will turn into a Riposte. A Riposte is a parry that also deals damage to the attacker. The base chance for a Parry to convert to a Riposte is 20%.

Dodge: A dodge is generally a contested roll based on the defender's defense skill and level compared against the attacker's weapon skill and level.

The formula for determining avoidance based on the three subsets of avoidance is unknown at this time.

Note Edit

My cast time and reuse skyrockets with timewarp and UT running and i am over cap base stat buffs near double,i recomend researching and revising it may have a small return every so many points over.

Game update 61Edit

  • Many stats now provide additional benefits to other stats! See below for details:
    • Having parry skill over the level cap now gives a bonus to uncontested parry and uncontested riposte.
    • Having defense skill over the level cap now gives a bonus to uncontested dodge.
    • Having haste over the cap now gives a bonus to flurry.
    • Having weapon skill over the cap now increases your minimum damage amount making it closer to the maximum amount.

    • Having spell and combat art skills over cap now increases the minimum damage of those spells and combat arts making it closer to the maximum amount.
    • DPS is now a rating that translates into the actual increase to your melee damage with no cap. Mouse over the DPS stat in your persona window to see the actual percent increase to your damage.
    • Having spell casting speed over the cap now gives you a slight bonus to double cast spells.
    • Multi Attack is now a rating rather than a straight percent chance for additional attacks. Mouse over the Multi Attack stat in your persona window to see how many extra attacks you get, and your chance for an additional attack on top of those.

Disruption to Damage: (From Kander at http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/index.php?threads/screwed-up-mage-gear-still-need-attention.4397/#post-47488)

If your disruption is higher than your “cap”, which for a level 95 player is 475, then for every 100 disruption over that cap you get a 2% increase to the minimum damage of your spells, up to 20%. So if you have 1475, you’ll be capped at 20% min spell damage increase.

If you had 100%, you would always hit for max damage.
