Accuracy operatives?

So there are a couple Operatives that hit way harder than I do as an Operative.

They won't tell me why(I asked), our gear is similar, I have more cunning than one and only 80 less than the other.

I have a higher Crit chance and surge chance as all of my enhancements are "Wily" or "Battle"(ie +crit+surge)

The major difference that I can see is "accuracy" and some Power.

I am at or just below %100 accuracy while the other two players are 107%+ accuracy(tech)

does the +7% accuracy cut through the defenses that other players have up or something?

should I switch to +crit+accuracy enhancements?

Accuracy does not increase damage. When the game says it reduces "defense" when above 100% accuracy, it means it reduces their dodge/parry chance not their armor. Power increases damage.

that is what I have assumed, but when I hit them it's in the 2000's and they hit me in the 3000's

then when i que with them on my side, i inspect their gear....and haven't been impressed. i see the 2 pieces with power and 3 with accuracy stats. So you are saying that accuracy is nothing.

I switch from Purple Wily to Purple reflective (+power+Crit)(spent 150k on mats to do so) and lowered my surge to 55%

seemed like absolutely no change in my dmg at all.

I bought and use stims as well, and pop my relic..and still am like 70% of their dmg....whichever Wf we are in, if I hit 200k they are at 260K, if I'm at 120k they are at 180K)

Do you know what spec they are? What are you using? There's quite a bit of potential variance just from skill selection.

Take a look here:

I am in the process of respeccing from Cybertech to Biochem right now in the hopes of making my scrapper Scoundrel enjoyable in PvP again after the latest nerf. Maybe with the stims he can hit like a woman and not like a little girl.

The two guys that didn't tell you their "secret" are idiots if you ask me.

Biochem is a must for any PvP operative. That is how we were balanced, afterall. 100% biochem adrenal up and 100% crit chance.

I have biochem aswell and do see other op's hitting harder that i.... I was thinking about swapping some of my accuracy for power/crit... maybe that'll be the difference
