Plus with the changes to Right price the new set Emergency Power would quite likely replace this set for PT tanks. Shame it only drops in ops though.



It has an INCREASED chance to drop in Dxun; it still can drop from everywhere.

Yes, what i meant to say its unavailable on the vendor and that I heard from multiple sources that they got their pieces from old nim ops more than dxun. And thats a shame because for sin and jugg the best tanking sets are freely available on the vendor.

Added to sidebar Helpful Guides section as "6.x Class & Stats Guide". Was so handy I could remove two old guides from 5.x as this one superseded both.

Hey, what are the stats I should aim for as an operative healer? I've got my 6 piece set bonus, and 7th amplifier slot plus my tactical is good and my relics are almost the right ones. Finally reached full 306 through Starfighter 😁

to add to what Jim has posted, High Alacrity Low Crit Vs Low Alacrity High Crit/Mastery is still being calculated, it doesn't look like there is much difference in terms of total output for an Op Heal (as is the DR limit on Crit for a healer) it's looking very close between the two builds so comes down to play style at the moment.

The amplifier recommendations are currently being remade as more and more 6.0 parses are introduced (the prior recommendations were based on 5.0 parses), there is, for example, a lot of evidence pointing towards armor pen being the best for all Jugg dps specs, more info+updates coming soonish.

List updated with some new recommendations (mainly the jugg amplifier) along with DPS advice for tanks set bonuses, tactical and amplifiers. Also added in the class guides that I personally feel contains a lot of good advice.

This is an amazingly detailed guide, however, one thing I found missing: What is the cap for shield and absorb? Without a lot of 286 augments, I seem to already hit quite close and am wondering if I should consider some kind of DPS augments instead...
Respect the CHAIN of command, for they will lead you to victory and "Through victory my CHAINS are broken!!".

The theorycrafter discord has the stat curves so you can use that for the diminishing returns or look up dipsticks 6.0 tank stats post on the swtor.com forum: 6.0 Tank Stats by Dipstick. Personally, I use 1213 alacrity with 3x superior barrage enhancements.

You may remove Blade of the Elements from Deception tacticals, as Awakened Flame simply outperforms it in pve.
Also, Armor Pen suggestion over Weapon Expertise makes sense only if AF tactical is picked.

Finally got around to sorting my gear out the best I can for now until I get more time to do fragment/crate earning. Burnt through 40 reward creates and over 9000 tech fragments with random enhancements from fleet vendor. All that resulted in 2 enhancements I actually needed 😥

Also missing some of the suggested mods so I've used substitutes for now.

I'm aiming for gear that is just generally useful. You all know me, I hardly have time to play the game content due to all my admin duties and work-work but I do like to keep my gear current so I can help out where needed or even just to take a break sometimes and dive in to a raid.

I did my best to follow the guide and external links plus a few other sources but I was still a bit fuzzy. Can you correct my mistakes please.

Operative healer, full 306. I went for high alacrity build 3208 since I already had several of those pieces. According to the BiS guide you linked, for Alacrity I should aim for:

GCD 1,3s = 2xAug + 4xR1 + 1xR4 + 2xR5

Armor: All Versatile 80
Have Lethal Mods: 4x80 3xR2 1xR10 1xR7
Want Lethal Mods: All R2
Have Enhancements: 4xR1 + 2xR4 + 1xR5
Want Enhancements: 4xR1 + 1xR4 + 2xR5
Ear + Implants: Sha'tek Adept (Critical)
Augments: 2x Alacrity 286 and rest Critical 286

These are my stats with class buffs and no stim:

Mastery: 12,219
Endurance: 16,368
Power: 9662
Critical: 2671
Alacrity: 3210

The diminishing returns spreadsheet shows Operative limit is around 3200 but I'm quite far off. I think that's because I've stacked so much into Alacrity.

Am I on the right track or did I misunderstand anything?

Multiple ways of getting to the 2nd tier alacrity (3208):

- Sevrahn's

- Quick and dirty:
3x Nimble Superior Enhancement 80 (+431) (could be implant/earpiece)
3x Nimble Superior Enhancement 80R-2 (+429)
1x Nimble Superior Enhancement 80R-10 (+412)
2 alacrity augments (+108)

Since youre not hitting the diminishing returns, max crit enhancements are superior adept enhancement 80

@Riku: Do you happen to know if any of the theorycrafters ran any numbers on the Primeval Fatesealer relic on Lightning Sorc for capped content? Because unlike other specs, where you get 1.3 GCD when used (not counting high ala Carnage and Arsenal builds), that relic is useless on Lightning with the recomended stats.

With 2584 alacrity rating you get the 1,2 GCD with the relic. Which I believe to be an DPS increase (again, talking about capped content). But obviously I don't have any hard numbers. Just based on parsing in ops...

And I also like having the faster GCD. :-)

Here's a little spreadsheet I made.

Never use the relic wih Polarity shift though. That's a waste.

Hello, I have done quite a lot of updates to this thread so it's up-to-date with theorycrafting, that means updating the merc heal and dps information along with adding alacrity for guildperk (as that is something we have now started with in one guild) + linked some new guides.
