• Basic Stats Sheet

    Written by Taladril

    These values and formulas are inherent to the core of the game. This will help you as a quick reference guide or to understand what stats do for you depending on what class you are.

    All values are base values. Some races or classes with talents modify different stats. These modifiers will multiply by the base amount to give the total value of the stat.



    10 health per Stamina


    2 Armor per Agility.

    See the table below for other effects by class.



    See the table below for effects by class.



    15 mana per Intellect.

    Increases +weapon skill up speed.

    See the table below for other effects by class.


    *Paladin Spell Crit is believed to be this, however it is still unknown


    See the table below for effects by class.


    Attack Power

    14 AP = 1 DPS


    X = (0.1 * Armor) / (8.5 * Attacker_Lvl + 40)
    Mitigation = X / (1 + X)


    Armor Cap

    Armor Cap

    Druids in Bear Form gain armor differently than other classes. Their base armor gets multiplied by a modifier that gives you a total armor value much higher than the base from the items. This is why they value items with inherent armor. The rule is though that only armor with white text benefits from the addition. Armor from Agility, enchants, buffs, or potions do not provide a multiplier benefit.

    Resistance cap is 315 for 75% spell damage reduction against a level 63 mob.



    At 440 total Defense, level 63 mobs can no longer crit you. This is referred to as "def cap" and while the cap applies to the crit portion of Defense, all of the other aspects continue to increase.

    Weapon Skill

    Weapon Skill

    Glancing Blows
    Glancing Blows are the largest component that is looked at when choosing gear with +Weapon Skill. Mobs that have higher defense than your character will cause you to hit with glancing blows depending on the difference on defense. For a level 63 mob, 40% of all white hits will be glancing blows and this percent is not able to be adjusted by the player in any way. Yellow hits are never affected by glancing blows. With 300 weapon skill against a level 63 mob, glancing blows reduces damage from 100% to 70%.

    For every point increase in Weapon Skill, the damage reduction is lessened by 3%.

    Glancing Blow Reduction

    310 Weapon Skill is the cap for glancing blow damage reduction. Increasing Weapon Skill will still increase the hit percent increases as listed above.

    Melee Crit
    Crits are worth 2x base damage value after armor reduction. Warriors have a talent that allows them to boost crits up to 2.2x base damage.

    Spell Crit
    Spell Crits are worth 1.5x base damage value after resistance effects. Some classes and talents allow you to boost the crits up to 2.0x base damage.

    Melee Hit Cap

    60 Hit Cap
    63 Hit Cap

    Spell Hit Cap

    Spell Hit Cap

    Separate from what is listed above, spells have an inherent 1% resist chance that can never be mitigated.
