If you trade willpower to strength, you get exactly the same melee bonus damage as you did get from willpower (no increase at all), but completely loose all the force bonus damage.

If you swapped just a few mods, the melee critical chance might increase by some tiny fraction of a percent (although the increase is very small as you still loose the melee crit chance from willpower before you gain it from strength), because of the diminishing returns affected by low amounts of 2 separate stats is less than that of a high amount of one stat but surely that gain is not enough to overcome the huge loss of everything else.

To conclude:

If you change some, but not all, your willpower to strength:
Melee Bonus Damage: No change what so ever.
Melee Critical chance: Very insignificantly small increase.
Force Bonus Damage: Huge loss
Force Critical Chance: considerable loss.

There is no way it could ever be a dps increase for any spec.

Alternatively

If you change all your willpower to strength:
Melee Bonus Damage: No change what so ever
Melee Critical chance: No change what so ever
Force Bonus Damage: You loose this completely
Force Critical Chance: You loose this completely
I played with tweaking my augments last night. I was able to add about 5 dps and 1% crit. Not really worth much. I think your better off with more willpower once you hit the curve on surge, crit and power.

As the poster under you said, post I was refering too got deleted. I quoted myself since said post the OP pretended i had not answered a part of the post, with a few colorful but mostly immature insults. I quoted the part of the post where the information was, then informed him of his lack of creativity. The post then got deleted, presumably because i reported it, as said.

Nice attempt, but as pointed out, you are just being a sad OOT troll.

Logic is a concept that can be applied, as successfully done by poster after you. Learn from it.

No sense of humor... it's sad.

Your post was funny. I post a "classic" joke about it, end of story. I didn't intent to troll (=trying to pick a fight). Don't get mad about it.

How about using a single saber or a vibrosword. Is that at all feasable?

You wont be able to use Force Breach/ Discharge or Maul.


Seriously guys. Don't stack strength. It's bad for you.

If thats your idea of a funny post where people laugh at it, work on it. While its easy blaming people lack of sense of humor, the truth is sometimes that you totally failed the joke.

Poster that first answered you seems to have understood the same as I did.


Back to the topic,

Most assassin's skill require a double-bladed saber including the charges, therefore nuking the spec.

Also, there is no advantage to single blade saber. Doublebladed is a more damaging mainhand, point. That would be like a sniper insisting to use a blaster rifle. So even if it was not requiered by your abilities, you'd be handicaping your damage.
