Surge for Marauders

Hey guys,

So started gearing up for hm operations (finished KP hm), however I'm wondering about surge. I know it's valuable, but right now I'm sitting at (self buffed, might and rakata str adrenal):

100.39% accuracy
26.12% crit
63.70% surge

This is just from standard stats on my columi/rakata gear. What I would like to know is, is it worth replacing some of the accuracy/power enhancements to the crit/surge enhancement you get from doing the Ilum daily Poisonous Strategy? I know I'll be taking a big blow on endurance, but survivability isn't an issue. The only thing that's holding me back and testing this out myself is that I don't want to replace the 24 enhancements with the 22 ones from Ilum (I like big numbers on my gear!)

Is it worth it to switch some of the accuracy/power enhancements to crit/surge from Ilum daily to hit the 75% surge rating, assuming I don't go below 98% accuracy and lose out on a ****-ton of power?

Thanks.

Can't really help you with the overall question, but I can tell you you're going to see some really heavy diminishing returns after 70% surge. I'm sitting at about 71% right now, and adding 48 more surge rating gets me to roughly 73%, with roughly 96% accuracy, so I really doubt you'll be able to get 75% surge without dipping under 98% acc. My gear is 3 piece BM, 2 champion, will full BM offset pieces minus the belt (champ, I like the power over the crit).

If this is for pve, I'd be looking to boost strength and power, and maybe get crit a little higher, this is assuming you're running annihilate or carnage.

Yeah, PvE-wise you should focus on Power and maybe Crit. Surge is really only useful for PvP and Rage spec.

My crit is at 30% right now, so I've been mainly stacking power & surge. However, consequently, my accuracy has dipped to 96.5/106.5. Which is kinda low...I mainly PVE. But, I haven't noticed many misses, so perhaps I will continue to stack surge until i get to 75% (72% now).

Wrong, Surge is THE most important for Carnage spec as well since most of your dps will be coming from Force Scream crits.

Thanks for the insight, people!

Ok, so I actually managed to scrape together some crit/surge enhancements from my comps columi and some champion gear I had lying around, sitting nicely at 98.01% accuracy, 27.39% crit and 70.98% surge. This is gonna be the best I can make out of my current gear, however already noticing a difference \o/

And very valuable for Annihilation as well, since a sizable percentage of bleed ticks are forced crits from Berserk.
