 SWTOR formula list

RE: SWTOR formula list
Hey guys, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but with the calculation on page 1, which is updated, wouldn't you need a Defense Rating of 655 to reach positive avoidance?

5 + 30 * ( 1 - ( 1 - ( 0.01 / 0.3 ) )^( ( 655 / 50) ) / 0.55 ) ) = 0.01?

Or am I doing my order of operations wrong?

Edit:

Disregard, I got confused by the extra parenthesis that I left behind from the "(level,20)" part of the original equation.

Thanks again for everyone's consideration and help! It doesn't go unappreciated.

If it helps, you can copy the formula's directly into Excel and plug in the level and rating values to get the correct result.
e.g.
= 5 + 30 * ( 1 - ( 1 - ( 0.01 / 0.3 ) )^( ( 655 / 50) / 0.55 ) )
will give 21.6 in Excel.

Awesome thread keep up the discussion!

One quick question, has the formula (1st post) been updated with the lastest game code from the last build?

As a healer i'm looking for that specific data and I think that the base numbers were updated?

I updated it yesterday, guess I'll put a date in there too.

From what I've been able to check (all offensive stats except Alacrity), the values of n and b haven't changed from the values above in today's "launch build".

Where does GlanceRating come from? I did a search here, can't find any other reference to it.

What I'm looking for is stat-based defensive stats, trying to ascertain if str is good for anything else but dmg.

Thanks

Glance is Shield chance. In WoW terms, glance is block and absorption is block value.

Primary stats have no defensive effects (apart from Endurance increasing the amount of damage you can take before dying, obviously). They do not contribute to the bonus of self-heals for tanks, either.

RE: SWTOR formula list
I suspected as much, but couldn't find where Glance Rating came from. I was quietly praying a stat helped that, but I was wrong.

Thanks for the replies.
