Endurance Loaded DPS

some people say at 50 for OPs and other stuff, as dps you want your main stat WAY over your endurance, for example 2100 strength and ~1800 endurance, and if you have more endurance than your main stat you wont do as good.. for example if you buy all Eliminator gear for the DPS Merc your endurance is over AIM by 200-300, is that really going to be a major difference??

imo.. i would want a team for HMEC+ to have over 20k health(healers/tanks/dps) just because everybody will get hit in fights... its just gonna happen. and it helps the healers if your able to take a few hits for them to get to you for heals..

what's your guys opinions??

Most of the dmg should go to the tanks so the rest of the group should focus on their main stat.

the problem is if you stack your end that high, you dps will suffer, making it much harder to defeat bosses before they enrage.

I'm not an expert on this, but my guess is that it's better to focus on getting your primary stat. I think they want you to avoid looking for endurance gear. I think as long as you're not picking Endurance over your primary stat you're good.

example 1st boss in EV when he does the missle attacks..sucks when your dps gets hit with 3 of them and their health are at 20% and two healers are suppose to heal 4 ppl with 20% and a tank with 60%... its difficult, would be nice if you could take a few hits so the healer can get to you

if your main stat and endurance is close to equal im sure if they do enrage you'll be able to down a boss very shortly after

In min-maxed black hole gear, your DPS are all going to be over 20k HP. So, it isn't an issue!

Only an ignorant person would stack endurance as a dps.

If you have the appropriate quality level (e.g. 56, 58, 61, 63) gear for the content you are running, you will have more than enough endurance. And this includes min / maxing gear at a given quality level as a dps such as getting rid off all the annoying Force Wielder, Commando, Patron, and Guardian armoring mods that plague set gear.

If a group with the appropriate level of gear is having problems with people dying or wiping, extra endurance isn't going to solve their problems.

By its very definition, that's with modding gear. Min-max is to have the best possible stats in every slot.

There are certain mechanics in fights where its critical to have high dps. the last stage of soa and the bombers in ec come to mind where you have seconds to shell out as much damage as possible.
