This is going from my memory of various posts, so caveat emptor.

Cunning first, Power afterwards. Augs all Cunning.
If your Crit with your buff is < 40% then add some to crit.
If Crit is 40+% and then choose Accuracy if its <105% for armor reduction.
If Accuracy is 105+% add to Surge.

Its purely whatever you want though. I'm currently stacking Cunning/Power at expense of crit for the heck of it.

This applies to both MM and ENG I believe. If you want to be sure, just select engineer from their menus there. Lethality I think goes a litle higher on crit.

Anyway. That's a tool. Use it.

Imo full optimized WH. Maybe swap an artful mod 26 for keen, but thats it. And yes, the datacrons I checked off are the ones I collected on my actual sniper: all aim, cunning, and end.

The thing to do is to buy your mainhands first, then armor sets, then implants and such. Note that your gear is pretty much built off your implants/earpieces since those don't have mod slots. The idea is to get around 35% crit, 77% surge, a little bit of accuracy is better than alacrity, and dump the rest into power.

This looks pretty good. I might drop some surge down to 76% and get accuracy instead.

Seeing as my accuracy is 99.34%, its a waste. If you don't have the 1% bonus, one more accuracy enhancement will make your accuracy from 98.34 to 99.90%. It's worth it since it will drop your surge only to 77.67% iirc, and 1% isn't really worth making a big deal over.

If you are doing PvP a lot you don't need over 100% accuracy. I run about 1950 cunning, 20k hp, 40% crit and 80% surge bonus.

there is no such thing as min/maxing as a sniper. You need some of everything except alacrity and tanking stats.
