Critical Rating ...VS... Power Rating

Hello all...

I've been crafting a bunch of items recently in my Armormech skill and I was under the initial impression that Power would be a better way to go ...instead of nearly identical items that instead have Critical.

This was based on the idea that power basically increases EVERY attack... and critical only happens on a seldom basis.

However, I noticed that 60 points in Power is only netting me 11 bonus damage points ...or something measly like that.

Should I focus more on making items that increase my critical chance???? Would that be a more worthy choice???

Thanks for your advice!

I cant say from experience, but a lot of have been mentioning on the forums that crits good for lower levels but power should be the focus, after accuracy, for higher levels.

Personally, I'm all defense
Flyboy Shaquandra - BM Pyro Merc - Keller's Void <RogueFive>
Flygirl China - War Hero Rage Jug - Keller's Void <Scum and Villainy >
LatoyaJackson The Merciless - BOSS Sorc - Keller's Void <Evil Bastards>

Simple:

Crit/surge for DPS
Power/alacrity for Heals
Tanks... mix of power/crit... mainly power

That's all you need to know

So... for my commando trooper.....

I should choose critical then? I don't even know how to increase surge...



...and then for my friend who is a healing/damaging consular... she should focus on power???

This is my opinion and preference from past experience:

When you are talking about DPS:

Crit for PvP
Power for PvE

Although the PvP gear would beg to differ.
Jt - Level 55 Mercenary - Rank 75 Valor
"Agent" Smth - Level 50 Sniper - Valor Rank 97

I replace all my PvP mods. Gotta do something with those duplicates after all. Crit / surge for the win...

*** is PvE?
