So far a guild member and myself have been trying to find out the hard caps.

So far i have found my Alacrity hard cap is 470 (wont go beyond that)
Crit is at 491.

Power, and surge i have hit the soft caps with 150 surge, and 242 power.

This is NOT confirmed just what we have noted so far.

More information on hard caps is needed!!!

There is a great thread about stats/theorycraft over at sithwarrior forums.

I believe the soft cap on alacrity and crit is 30% (Meaning added from gear)

On top of that, you can have talents and buffs which can raise your crits over 30%.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

Thanks for the reply, i have found that soft caps/hard caps have been differing from different classes. and for the soft cap i am aware of that yes. i am not talking %s here i am taking the actual rating itself. my crit is at 36% and alacrity soft cap is NOT 30%.. i think i have hit a hardcap (unsure because sometimes gear is bugged when removing mods unless you relog) but it is at 13.19% hard capped (not confirmed.)

Thanks

please go to sithwarior forums, you will find all formulas/caps you can imagine

to summarize (this has been extracted from game files and tested million times over):
1. there are no soft or hard caps
2. there are no rating caps
3. there are only percentage caps (but due to exponential scaling of rating to percentage, you would need infinity of each rating to hit the cap, due to rounding you will hit the cap at around 50k rating)
4. caps stack with each other, buffs/talents have no caps

current caps for ratings are:
crit% from crit rating: 30%
crit% from your primary stat (willpower for sorc): 30%
alacrity% from alacrity rating: 30%
surge% from surge rating: 50%
expertise% from expertise rating: 20% (was 9% in early beta)
defense% from defense rating: 75%
and so on...

Please note that caps stack with each-other (an ok sorc will have ~15% crit from willpower, ~15 crit from crit rating and another 10% from buffs/talents, for the total of 40% crit, but it is impossible to have more than 30% of crit from either willpower or crit rating)

Total percentage= SUM(all caping pecentages from ratings/primary stat) + base stat (i.e. 50% for surge) + talents + stacking buffs

Prior to 1.1 you could have insane amounts of expertise, but they removed the buff stacking (you could have ~15% from rating + 15% from stim + 30% from wz buff item, etc. )
