Which stats to focus on?

Hey guys,

I would like to know on which stats I should keep my focus on as a DPS PVP Vanguard.

Aim is a nobrainer, also Endurance to a good degree. But what about secondary stats? Would crit be any good? Surge? Accuracy? Power even?
I actually don't consider Alacrity a viable option. I think you would need a lot for it to actually have an impact.

Advice would be appreciated

Without any deep theorycrafting, my gut says Crit > Power > Surge > Alacrity > Accuracy
But that's just my gut.

Alacrity is a throw away stat for Vanguards. Absolutely useless. Accuracy is great because once you cross 100%, it starts to act as armor penetration.

The damage table is as follows: Crit > Shield > Normal Hit

This means that with enough crit, shield can possibly be pushed off the damage table.

DPS - Crit/Surge are the only stats you should focus on.

Tank - Shield/absorption...if you are pre-30s these will not be readily avaliable so crit/surge before the 30s.
-I would rather pay for a great game than play a poor game for free.
-Viable and worthwhile are not the same when it comes to class design.
