So I wanted to start a thread for everyone to come together and share what you think the best stats to run for PvE/PvP on each class. Here is a layout of the new stats and what they do * Credit to Allods Oracle for his/her translations! *
Vigor
This stat is on all pieces of equipment. It determines your base damage. It is the same as Strength/Intelligence in the old system. You can’t put stats into this stat, they are only received from equipment and/or rubies. Your patron stat bonus is also fixed on this stat. This stat will be the same for all classes at the same level of equipment.
Stamina
This stat is also on all pieces of equipment, like Vigor. It determines your base health. It’s the same as Stamina in the old system. You also cannot put stats into this stat, they all come from gear.
Proficiency
Increases your base damage by the % of the stat. At 20.60 Proficiency, it will increase your damage by 20.60%. Simple.
Determination
Increases your damage when you’re being attacked. The increase works as 0.(2x)% per % of Determination where x is the level of the stat. At 50% Determination, will be x increase, and 100% Determination, 2x increase.
Brutality
This stat increases your damage as your target loses health.
*Increases your damage and healing by 0.xxx% for every percent health your target is missing(by (25*0.xxx)% for 75% health of your target, by (75*0.xxx)% at 25% health of your target).*
Anger
Similar to Rage in the current system, however, now wound complexity builds up over time, rather than immediately at the start of combat. A droplet of wound will be applied at a rate of x% of your damage done, where x is the number of the stat. Also healers can now apply wound complexity by healing their allies. Any opponents who attacked someone you’re healing in the last 10 seconds will receive some wound complexity. In 5.0 there will additionally be a set of level 60 PvP Draconic Relics that will boost Anger. You can obtain them from Battlegrounds.
Vitality
Increases your health by x% where x is the amount of that stat. Another simple one. If you want more health points, increase this.
Willpower
For every second under control effects you receive x% resistance. When that reaches 100% you will receive immunity to control effects for y seconds. X and y increase the higher the stat is. Mobs can also have Willpower, so controlling them will become more difficult.
Bloodlust
Heals you for x% of your damage and y% of your heals. This is an interesting one as it gives classes who can’t normally heal the ability to heal themselves through dealing damage.
Tenacity
Reduces the speed that you receive wound complexity. Allows you to receive 10*x% more damage where, x is the amount in the stat, before you receive a drop of wounds. This stat is the counter stat for Rage and will be important for PvP.
Luck
Gives you x% chance to inflict double (critical) damage. Now glancing blows have been removed. The base value of Luck is 5% chance to crit. There isn’t any Luck in equipment, there’s no Luck alchemy potions (that I’ve seen so far) and you can’t put any stat points in it. You can only increase it with Elixirs. Draconic Relics will now boost Luck instead of Intelligence/Strength if you have PvE relics.
Faith
Increases your mana. Exactly the same as Faith in the current system.
