Mastery vs Power

Specifically 24 mastery vs 42 power...anyone have any idea which one would give the most damage increase? Mainly asking because of some mod options where one has 24 more mastery and the other has 42 more power. If the mastery is more damage then I'd need to replace 9 mods...so 216 mastery vs 378 power.

They've always been close enough that what you should be maximizing is Mastery+Power, not either independently.

Power will always grant you higher bonus dmg, mastery gives a increase to bonus dmg as well as crit chance.

Mastery
Force Dmg Bonus per Point - 0.2

Power
Force Dmg Bonus per Point - 0.23

There isn't much of a difference but it's there. However, if you're not at your limit for crit chance, then mastery will benefit you more. In you're case however, you're adding much more power over mastery, so it would therefore increase your dmg more to go for the power.

Hope this helps

Mastery doesn't give a crit bonus anymore I thought?

*UPDATE* I tested it out and my crit chance does not increase with Mastery so it looks like Mastery does not have that bonus anymore.

Mastery still increases crit chance. Check again.

Way too high. Look in the subforum Roles - big thread.
Around 36-37% is enough.
