This is pretty much spot on, but I would not go with the 75-80% surge. At 75%, the diminishing returns you get for surge rating are not worth the sacrifice on other stats. Get to 75% and stop. From there you will have to swap mods/Enhancements to keep things level as you build your set.

Campaign/DG armorings will not double your bonus, BUT....if you have Campaign/DG armorings, those armor mods carry the set bonus rather than the shell. This allows you to customize your look. But again, Shark is on the mark as far as getting ready and maxed out for the HM TFB/NM EC content.

Shark, my question to you is whether or not your 35% crit rating is with buff and stim or without?

May be a stupid question but how do you get the surge percentage? On askmrrobot it only comes up in a numeric value.

The surge percentage is your cirtical multiplier.

I also recommend this setup. A top tier bodyguard merc will have +80% surge (even with the DR) for the following reason: THERE IS NO OTHER ENHANCEMENT THAT GIVES POWER.

My current stats (buffed) are;

AIM: 2378
Power: 1210
Crit: 35.48%
Surge: 80.21%
Alacrity: 4% (9% w/ Critical Reaction)
