Greetings fellow bounty hunters,

I recently switched to biochem for power adrenal and rakata stim, combining these two i have a total of 1395 power, but i feel like im not doing as much dmg as i think i should be. Maybe there is a cap?

My bounty hunters stats are the following:

Ranged:
Primary dmg 733-976
Bonus dmg 449.1 (515 power)
Accuracy 96.34%
Crit chance 32,24%
Crit multiplier 77.95%

Tech:
Bonus dmg 793
Accuracy 106.34%
Crit chance 39.40%
Crit multiplier 77.95%

Pvp dmg boost 24,48% (1332 expertise)

Those are the stats with all class buffs, including rakata reflex stim.

Thoughts?

Spoiler

Wait, you have that much crit and surge in your PVP gear? Jesus, no wonder I still get steamrolled sometimes in full Battlemaster, if that's what War Hero does for you.

I have very very similar stats to you and I notice a decent boost from power relic+adrenal.

Dunno what to tell ya....are you expecting your damage to double or something? In pyro I do like 3.5k max railshots usually, with adrenal and relic it goes over 4k. Pretty much what I want/expect.

Edit; as a merc, dunno if you're PT or merc.

There is no cap for power, but there is a softcap for surge, its 250 and I think you would be better off stacking crit. I get a crit of 43.5% tech crit with 49.5% fire crit and 57.5% railshot crit.

Hard to believe i would be better off by switching 2 mods for crit instead of surge, in 95% of the games im always ahead of others in total dmg by 100k-300k. I feel that 40% tech crit is plenty enough for me.

you have to much accuracy for pvp... and also...you should remember the 20% damage boost from expertize... the rest over is useless... switch some ench/mods get also orange waist wrist put pve armoring level25 and bm/wh mod in them....
my mercenary atm have like 2000aim 1100expertize crit 40% surge 75% power 450 more or less...remember lose some accuracy (100%)is enough for pvp and some expertize (get some other stats instead)
