Stat Scaling for 2.0- Are Your Stats Lower on the PTS?

Posted by on Feb 23, 2013 in News, SWTOR | 0 comments

If you’ve logged into the PTS recently, you probably have already seen that the scaling is different from what is live in the game. Stats are usually around 50-70% of the character sheet value in live. Everyone on the PTS was aware that BioWare would be changing the scaling formula but we didn’t know exactly what that would be. Now with 2.0, you can tell what these changes are going to look like. One user on the forum has taken the time to work from the old formula and try to build new co-efficients that will govern the stat scaling (yes, lots of math involved but it’s really interesting.) Here are some of his breakdowns:   Defensive Defense Rating – Now scales roughly 118% slower Shield Rating – Now scales roughly 50% slower Absorb Rating – Now scales roughly 127% slower Armor – Now scales 2.5% slower, but remains on a linear progression HP – Buffed significantly at level 55 (base health is 4000, vs 2500 at 50 on live) Offensive Crit % (from...

Posted by on Jan 22, 2013 in Guide, SWTOR, The Esseles | 0 comments

Don’t forget to check out constantly growing list of guides for Star Wars: The old republic The Esseles is the very first Flashpoint for the Republic faction and you’ll enter it as soon as you leave the prologue planet. You’ll be asked to board the transport ship the Esseles headed for the capital of Coruscant. Players must be at least a level 10 before you are allowed to enter the transport. While you can go this instance alone, it’s more beneficial if you have at least two players and your companions.

This is a story based Flashpoint so there’s many cutscenes and dialogue that will earn you social points and there are several bonus missions to complete. You’ll also have to decide the fate of the passengers. Letting them live will earn you 150 points for the LightSide and letting them die will earn you...

Flashpoint Guides: Kaon Under Siege

Posted by on Jan 20, 2013 in Guide, Kaon Under Siege, SWTOR | 0 comments

Don’t forget to check out constantly growing list of guides for Star Wars: The old republic The Flashpoint Kaon Under Siege was added to Star Wars: The Old Republic with Patch 1.1 and it’s one of the hardest in the game. It’s intended for players who are at least a level 50. It takes place on a Spaceshuttle where an infection broke out, which turned everyone into a creature that resembles a zombie. The infection was passed from one person to another until everyone was infected. The main difference between this instance and many of the others is that the mobs are much harder to kill and there are a lot of them in the beginning of the Flashpoint. First Boss: The Mobs Instead of going up against a boss, the first thing your group will encounter is a big mobs fight. The objective is to stay alive as you’re met with waves of incoming mobs. The first fight will appear shortly after you begin the instance when you see a glowing blue turret in the middle of the room. Just ignore it for a...
