Updated 5/30/2013: Using simulator for kinetic bulwark, found time averaged contribution to absorb of 5.52%, which switched around 20 defense to absorb.

Updated 5/14/13: AMR for Guardians changed back to underworld enhancements. at 4500 dps, it turned out to be taking 2 less dps per second at the cost of 2k health pool. 32.7k vs. 34.7k according to AMR.

Updated May 10 2013: Updated total mitigation data for vanguards since the stance provides extra 1.5% armor rating than stated (no difference to stat weights, just overall mitigation, so the relic numbers are a little off). added numbers under the slope and intercept to show how mitigation per point changes at higher values of stat pool.

Updated May 6 2013: Changed the AMR profile for guardian to use crafted 66 immunity and sturdiness, which gives better overall mitigation. also updated all profiles for using a nano stim.

Update 4/30/2013: New calc for Kinetic bulwark used. makes shadows want a little more absorb for 790 gearing.

Updated 4/29/13 New askmrrobot links where sins/shadows now use high mitigation due to high dps numbers (very low internal/elemental). due to implants and ears affecting the minimum shield rating, i redid the relic numbers with these profiles as a launching point (where the 2399 stat budget was the starting point, with itemization limitations). suugest just shooting for the AMR profiles.

Updated 4/27/13 for static defense on defense proc relic

Updated 4/20/13 for 2.0

HOW TO USE THE TABLES: Depending on your gear level, you will have a different mitigation pool (in the tables this is "total"). To find the values of your mitigation stats, such as defense, shield and absorb, for which the damage you take is minimized, add up your mitigation ratings (found by hovering over your character sheet) and use that as your total (assuming you are not stacking accuracy). In the total column, find your total, and use the mitigation ratings in that row to achieve minimum squishiness (d is defense, s is shield and a is absorb)

I have also provided tables for the relics as they affect each class. I used the mitigation (post armor) while the relic was "on" and applied that mitigation to the uptime (assumeing 23 seconds between procs), and used the AMR profile stat pools as the baseline for the downtime. the weighted value is the expected damage over an extended period of time. You want to use the lowest possible, but remember you can only use one proc relic (unless you go with PVP relics which were not calculated).

DISCLAIMERS:

In the builds linked (askmrrobot.com), the last remaining points of each build are up for debate, but they do not matter for the calculations. most choices are bertween different force regen or damage concerns.

I have not taken "Oh Crap!" cooldowns, such as oil slick and the like into account because assuming that you have a 7% defense buff at all times is drastically different then having a 20% buff for 20 seconds every 60 seconds. I have tried to include all buffs that come from skilltree as well as from debuffs on the boss from the tanks rotation, such as slow time and the like. I do not attempt to use mitigation stats with unmittigatable damage in mind.

I am hoping that people will offer suggestions as to how these assumptions could be altered to better estimate optimal stat weights. Perhaps the 50/50 split between accuracy-damage types is naive, If statistics are presented, or better yet, revised formulas, we can get better data.

examples of formulas used to minimize squaishiness are presented in the shadow section. I am using a revised version of keyboard ninjas spreadhsheet, where i have modified many things and double checked the eqautions to actual characters in game to make sure everything lines up.

I may have missed something ... so review my work

all of this assumes:

38.965% of damage is melee/ranged kinetic/energy at 90% accuracy

38.965% of damage is melee/ranged kinetic/energy at 100% accuracy

20.7% of damage is force.tech kinetic/energy damage

1.37% of damage is force/tech internal/elemetal damage

base armor rating for light armor at arcanian is 2894

base armor rating for light armor at underworld is 2999

base armor rating for heavy armor at arcanian is 5466

base armor rating for light armor at underworld is 5666

post armor mitigation:

(0.7793*(1-dr)*(0.5*(1-d-0.1)*(1-s*a)+0.5*(1-d)*(1-s*a))+0.207*(1-dr)*(1-r)*(1-s*a)+0.0137*(1-ir)*(1-r))

where d-0.1 from is from 90% accuracy attack, 0.5 from fraction melee/ranged kinetic/energy at 90% accuracy

dr is damage reduction form armor, to kinetic and energy damage

d is defense fraction

s is shield fraction

a is absorb fraction

ir is internal resistance

r is resiatance

health= endurance*10*1.08, 0.05 from warrior/knight buff, and 0.03 from skill tree. remember you get a

armor= armor_rating*(1+1.15), where 1.15 comes from stance

kinetic/energy resist (damage reduction from armor and talents) = (armor/((armor)+240*55+800) + 0.02

+0.02 +0.05, where 0.02 comes from skill tree, 0.02 come from 4 set bonus and 0.05 from slow time

internal resist (internal/elemental damage reduction) = 0.10 + .02 + 0.09 + 0.02 +0.05 , where 0.1 is from willpower buff, 0.09 is from skill tree (tech mastery), 0.02 form 4 set bonus, 0.02 is form skill tree (jedi resistance) and 0.05 from slow time

force/tech resist = 0.02

defense = 0.1 + 0.05 +0.06 + 0.30*(1-(1-(0.01/0.3))^((Def_Rating/55)/1.2)) , where 0.1 from base, 0.05 from accuracy debuff of force breach, 0.06 from skill tree

shield = 0.15 + 0.2 + 0.05 + 0.5*(1-(1-(0.01/0.5))^((Shield_Rating/55)/0.78)) , where 0.15 comes form stance, 0.2 comes from kinetic ward (with 4 peice set bonus), 0.05 is base shield from shield offhand.

absorb = 0.04 + sum_i=0..8(.01*i*binom(i,15,shield)) + 0.2 + 0.50*(1-(1- (0.01/0.5))^((Abs_Rating/55)/0.65)) , where 0.04 comes from skill tree, shield dependent portion comes from kinetic ward stacks eaten to give bulwark stacks (15 comes from (1-d)*20/.87, 20 is length of ward and .87 is swing time for snv hm), 0.2 comes from base from shield offhand

self heals:

health*0.08 every 12 seconds from 3 stack telekinetic throw

368 every 6 seconds or so from combat technique.

you get 0.072 hps per point of endurance and 3.9E-5*dps mitigation per second per point of mitigation

combust: 5% kinetic reduction, 5% internal reduction

shield vents: 2% shield

ablative upgrades: 4% absorb

ion screen: 2% kinetic reduciton, 2% internal

deflective plating: 4% defense

heat screen: 3% for 6 seconds after heat blast

heat blast: during heat blast: (25+0)*1.5+(25+1)*1.5+(25+2)*1.5*1+(25+3)1.5

taking time averaged for both gives (3*6+25*1.5+26*1.5+27*1.5+28*1.5)*(1/12) = 14.75% absorb. KBN got 15.33. so im just going to call this number 15%.

power armor: 2% kinetic reduction, 2% internal reduction

integrated cardio package: 3% endurance

stance: 5% kinetic damage reuction, 5% internal damage reduction, 60% increase armor rating, 15% shield chance,

extra 1.5% armor rating from bug for stance.

set bonus: 2% resistance, 2% defense

resist buff: 10% internal resistance

because you want shield here, i didnt need to run numbers for 720 and 790 separately.
