Classes & Disciplines


Assassin / Shadow

  • Darkness / Kinetic Combat

  • Deception / Infiltration

  • Hatred / Serenity

Merlyn’s Recommendations:

Implants
Force Resistance Package (defensive) – Elemental, Internal, Kinetic and energy damage reduction is increased by 3%.

Dynamic Force Package (offensive/defensive) – The cooldown of Force Potency / Recklessness is reduced by 15 seconds.

Force Training Package (offensive) – Melee and force attacks deal 3% more damage.
Tacticals
Two Cloaks (situational) – Force Cloak has 2 charges.

Shroud of a Shadow (situational) – Using Force Shroud while Dark Ward is active consumes it, but extends the duration of Force Shroud by a quarter of a second for each Dark Ward stack consumed.

Friend of the Force (situational) – Force Shroud also applies to any ally you are guarding.

The Life Warden (backup) – Taking damage below 20% health will rapidly heal you for a large amount. 10 Minute Cooldown
Tank Gearing Objectives
Reach the target Shield & Absorb stats
Reach the target Alacrity break point if you are gearing for offensive tanking – If Guild Zeal perk, reach the 1.4s GCD with approximately 560 Alacrity; if no Guild Perk or in content that does not apply perk, it is not recommended to gear Alacrity because it would cost too much of your stats
➤ If you are gearing for offensive tanking, place extra stats into Critical. This will increase tank DPS. Offensive gearing without the Zeal perk or in content it does not apply is best done through adding Critical rather than Alacrity.
➤ Solely defensive builds will want to only balance Shield and Absorb tertiary stats.

Theorycrafters Recommendations:

Implants
Force Resistance Package (tank stats) – Elemental, Internal, Kinetic and energy damage reduction is increased by 3%.

Dynamic Force Package (dps stats) – The cooldown of Force Potency / Recklessness is reduced by 15 seconds.

Stationary Grit (tank stats) – Increases damage dealt by 3% while not moving or increases armor rating by 10% while moving.

Tacticals
Two Cloaks – Force Cloak has 2 charges.

Alternatives:

Tome of Exar Kun – Wither generates Redirected Wrath stacks for every enemy it hits, increasing your shield absorption and damage reduction by 2% per stack for 5 seconds. In addition, Maul deals 10% more damage to targets affected by Wither’s slow effect.

Shroud of a Shadow – Using Force Shroud while Dark Ward is active consumes it, but extends the duration of Force Shroud by a quarter of a second for each Dark Ward stack consumed.

The Life Warden – Taking damage below 20% health will rapidly heal you for a large amount. 10 Minute Cooldown
STATS:
Shield: 5000 – 5500
Absorb: remaining tertiary stats

Merlyn’s Recommendations:

Implants
Dynamic Force Package – The cooldown of Force Potency / Recklessness is reduced by 15 seconds.

Force Training Package – Melee and force attacks deal 3% more damage.

Shadowcraft Package – Using Shadow Stride / Phantom Stride from stealth grants Shadowcraft, increasing your critical hit chance by 100% for 6 seconds. Force Cloak resets the cooldown of Shadow Stride / Phantom Stride.
Tacticals
The Awakened Flame (single) – When Ball Lightning deals damage, it causes its target to become electrified, dealing energy damage over 6 seconds.

May Cause Injury (AOE) – Activating Severing Slash causes your next Surging Discharge to arc to multiple targets.
DPS Gearing Objectives
Reach 110% Accuracy. Reaching this will require approximately 2,694 points. The reason for the 10% over is Operation bosses default a 10% defense chance, so having less that 110% would mean you could miss attacks. It is recommended to go slightly above the point count given.
Reach the target Alacrity break point. See the Alacrity Table to see your disciplines required Alacrity threshold. It is recommended to go 200-400 points over to make sure you are not wasting stat points by not reaching the break point.
Place all remaining stats into Critical. Once you reach the 110% Accuracy and the break point for Alacrity, the remainder of your stats should go to Critical as there is no benefit to having more of either the Accuracy or Alacrity.

Place all remaining stats into Critical. Once you reach the break point for Alacrity and any Accuracy you choose to add, the remainder of your stats should go to Critical as there is no benefit to having more of either the Accuracy or Alacrity.

Concentrated Fire Package – Activating Supercharged Cell / Supercharged Gas makes your next High Impact Bolt / Rail Shot, Mag Bolt / Shot, or Bacta Infusion / Emergency Scan critically hit or heal.

SC-4 Treatment Scanner (primary) – Progressive Scan heals for an additional 5% and generates Supercharge stacks while channeled, up to 4 stacks for a completed channel.

Running Restoration (secondary) – Healing Scan can be activated while moving and heals for an additional 15%.
Healing Gearing Objectives
Reach the target Alacrity GCD break point. It is important that you reach and exceed the break point number by 200-400 points so you have no wasted Alacrity.
Add some Accuracy (optional) Some healers choose to add Accuracy to help add some damage abilities and interrupts. Interrupts and hits can miss without the 110% accuracy. Merlyn doesn’t recommend adding this until Veteran or harder operations if you choose to.
Place all remaining stats into Critical. Once you reach the break point for Alacrity and any Accuracy you choose to add, the remainder of your stats should go to Critical as there is no benefit to having more of either the Accuracy or Alacrity.

Tank Gearing Objectives
Reach the target Shield & Absorb stats
Reach the target Alacrity break point if you are gearing for offensive tanking – If Guild Zeal perk, reach the 1.4s GCD with approximately 560 Alacrity; if no Guild Perk or in content that does not apply perk, it is not recommended to gear Alacrity because it would cost too much of your stats
➤ If you are gearing for offensive tanking, place extra stats into Critical. This will increase tank DPS. Offensive gearing without the Zeal perk or in content it does not apply is best done through adding Critical rather than Alacrity.
➤ Solely defensive builds will want to only balance Shield and Absorb tertiary stats.

Mastery  basically increases the effectiveness of your attacks and heals and boosts your critical chance. Mastery is found on most gear, including your mods, implants, all new gear for 7.0, augments and even some relics.

Endurance
Endurance gives you more health and determines the amount of damage you can get during combat, without heals, before you die. Tanks a lot of times will chose Endurance over Defense chance. The other specs, DPS and healing, usually will get enough from their purple gear. Endurance is also found on most pieces of gear, including mods, implants, all new gear for 7.0 and relics.

Secondary Stats

Power
Power is most necessary for healing and DPS classes. Power increases the effectiveness of your damage and heals. The increase is slightly higher than from Mastery, without the critical. Tanks usually have to sacrifice shield or absorb to get the Power stat, which is why tanks deal a lot less damage than their DPS counterparts.

Defense Rating
Defense Rating increases your defense chance, giving you increased chance to avoid melee and ranged attacks. Tanks are usually the only ones to have this stat and don’t normally need to add more than what their gear offers.

Tertiary Stats

Accuracy
Accuracy increases the chance that an attack will hit the enemy. Any percentage over 100 also reduces the target’s chance to dodge, which is needed against enemies that have a chance to defend an attack, like bosses, strong, elite and champion level enemies. Tanks get 110% accuracy. DPS need to take this stat, since none of your other stats matter if your attack misses its intended target.

Alacrity
Alacrity increases the speed you can execute your rotation and how quickly they come off cooldown. Alacrity affects activation time, global cooldown duration, resource regeneration rate, DoT duration and some cooldown durations. You do need to reach a threshold to get maximum benefit from this stat and that will be explained further down.

Critical
Critical determines the chance you have to deal a critical hit and the amount that attack deals. Critical Chance gauges the chance your attack or heal will hit and critical multiplier is the amount of extra damage or healing your attack will deal when it does critically hit.

Shield
Shield increases the chance a shield generator will reduce the damage of an incoming attack. This is affected by what kind of damage and also uses the absorb stat for the amount of damage reduced.

Absorb
Absorb is just what it says, the amount of damage received that is absorbed by a shielded attack that triggers your personal shield generator. Absorb will not do anything if your shield generator doesn’t trigger, so prioritize Shield Rating first.
