There's been a lot of discussion over whether power or willpower is better. Not sure myself. I know Shin says willpower, and I've seen other who have used power to boost their damage to huge values.

It seems to me that willpower is probably better, because you're going to be trying to stack as much power in your other gear slots but have to sacrifice crit to do so. Now some thing crit is important, others less important, but it's certainly necessary to have in some degree, and gaining some extra crit from the augments seems the best way to avoid sacrificing it altogether as you gain your power. All of your other gear choices will give you two or three times as much power as an augment can, but they're the ones that give up crit. This means that it seems most cost effective to put willpower into those augments and get a little crit back, while sacrificing it for huge power numbers in the other slots.

Here's what people are not understanding about the WP v P argument for the augment.
Power is only better WITH Willpower. In this case, WP gives the damage and crit so that's why it wins.

If 18 Power v 18 WP, then WP is clearly the better choice.
Now if the augment was something like this:

+10 Endurance
+10 Power
+10 Willpower

Then this would be the better choice. Power acts a secondary additional damage boosting stat, not your primary. Therefore, 10+10= 20 Damage points. Whereas 18 alone will lose.
Get it?

The reason some people prefer power is that the game multiplies your primary stat by 0.2 when calculating bonus damage, but it multiplies power by 0.23. In terms of straight damage, you get more point for point by adding power. The advantage to willpower is that it adds to other categories than just your damage.
