Power increases damage either for force attacks, melee attacks or ranged attacks

Hello,

when you mouse over your combat details in your character screen it shows a tooltip with details, this will include a line how much (or little) "power" contributes to damage, etc.

Would be nicer if there was an actual "Power" entry on the stats page, and it could show everything it does.. rather than reverse investigating its effects. ^^

Regards

Power increases the damage and healing of all abilities, whether melee, ranged, force, or tech. It is pretty much an overall boost to your basline combat effectiveness.

As you continue to level, other stats will begin to appear on gear. If you are curious about those other stats, check out Force Tremor's write up about stats, http://forcetremor.com/misc.php?page=statsguide.

There is Power where it boost your damage, healing, attack etc

then there is sub category of
Force Power - all force base attack, force heal, force lightning
Tech Power - technological, merc healing, flame thrower

Most items would have a much higher force/tech power than just power since force/tech only apply to a narrow category.

The way I see it you go from broads to specific

Primary Stats
- Crits
- Power
- Tech
- Froce

Hello everyone!

Stickied to the top of forums throughout the site are threads with helpful information, such as BlackRifle's An Easy Guide to Primary Stats and Others, which discusses each stat available in game and what they do.

Also, since New Player Help has a higher amount of guides, we have the New Players Fleet Pass: A Directory of Resources to help showcase all of the great guides we do not have sticky room for!

Hope that helps
