Yeah, I probably was out of line there. Sorry to who ever I chewed out on. I just get kinda tired of asking questions that I honestly don't know the answer to, then someone treats me like an idiot for it. Not a warm, fuzzy feeling...

Honestly this is more of a question for general chat on Dromund Kaas. Sure, they'll make fun of you, but at least then there's no permanent record...

LOL. Yeah I just never really got into stats before, just stuck with the story line and just stayed away from pvp, but now am starting to get bored. So I thought I should just start beefing my PT up to be competitive.

Thanks all for the info and the patience

You should stack Presence so your Unnatural Might hits harder.

Lol some pretty funny responses here, but yes here is a quick run down

Agent/smuggler = Cunning
BH/Trooper = Aim
Inquisitor/sage = Willpower
Warrior/knight = strength

Secondary stats depends on what you are doing, tanking/dps

Presence is nice for leveling with companions.

Just thought I may chime in, but due to the fact that there is a DR on the crit from mainstat, it can actually be beneficial to stack some cunning over aim(especially since HiB and HS are your only 2 range attacks, I think). I'm no math wiz but there are some snipers that are in this thread http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...=557158&page=4

Around page 4 is where the conversation begins, last post of page 4 has some math too

No, dude...Cunning only adds to Tech Bonus Damage and Tech Critical Rating for a BH/Trooper. Rail Shot/High Impact Bolt is a "white attack", meaning the roll is generated from the Ranged attack table. Ranged attacks are NOT the same as Tech attacks and do not share roll tables.

To recap:
"White attacks" are Ranged attacks = Rail Shot, Rapid Shots, Unload

"Yellow attacks" are Tech attacks = Flame Burst, Explosive Dart, Flame Thrower, Flame Sweep, Thermal Detonator, Incendiary Missile, Immolate, Heat Blast, Retractable Blade, and all Internal/Elemental DOT's.

Also, you should never be stacking Primary stats over Secondary stats for DPS PT. Yes, for PVE, you pick up Steely Resolve, but that is only because it passively increases Ranged/Tech Bonus Damage and Critical Rating (where burst from TD is not as useful).

In addition to the aforementioned, any DPS PT running outside of an RS build (Either AP or Pyro) is wasting their character slot. Therefor, you want to use only Aim as your Primary stat for the increase to Ranged stats.

The only cunning you should stack is through datacrons. Don't ever use a non-main stat in place of your main stat.
