Cunning or Aim?

I was just looking at my Power Tech BH (DPS skill focus), I ask myself, "Should I redo my gear with the focus going towards cunning rather than aim?"

What do the knowledgeables of SWTOR say?

Aim. It's the BH's attribute.

yeah Cunning is for agents/smugglers. you want Aim unless your BH tank spec, then you dont have to worry how much aim you stack.
Kript - SNX - Harby, Yes its a PVE server but honestly there isn't a lot of open world PVP on the other servers anyway.

Ok, so even if I use mostly tech weapons like Flame Burst or Gut, aim is still better than cunning?

Is it really that hard to open your character sheet and move your mouse over your stats and READ THE TOOLTIPS?

Aim will give you: ranged bonus damage, ranged critical chance, tech bonus damage, tech critical chance

Cunning will give you: tech bonus damage, tech critical chance

So why would you ever want to replace a stat which increases BOTH ranged and tech damage with a stat that affects only tech damage?



For the billionth time, FOR EVERY CLASS THEIR OWN PRIMARY STAT WILL BOOST ALL OF THEIR ABILITIES, while one of the other classes primary stats will boost only one type of ability and the rest do nothing.

And one more time:
Press C to open your character sheet and move your mouse over each of the stats listed and READ THE TOOLTIPS!!!

(note those concerning primary stats will be different for each class)

Well THANK YOU SASSY PANTS!!! Jeez, ask a simple question and get a annoying response. Maybe I don't spend BILLIONS of hours playing the game and just had a simple question and didn't want to do something as stupid as creating a ticket in the help center.

That is easily the dumbest excuse for not checking your own tool tips.

To be fair, you got two perfectly valid responses before you started questioning the people you were asking for help. Nothing more annoying than someone who asks a question and doesn't accept the answer, IMO
