  • Burning Crusade Combat Ratings

    We've seen a number of players (since we've released the combat rating information) display a desire to be empowered with the knowledge of the appropriate level 70 values. As a result, we've gathered them for you. Enjoy your weekend of theorycrafting! :P

    Combat Ratings conversions at level 70 (rounded to 1 decimal point):

    Weapon Skill Rating: 3.9 rating grants 1 skill point

    Defense Rating: 2.4 rating grants 1 defense skill.

    Dodge Rating: 18.9 rating grants 1% dodge

    Parry Rating: 31.5 rating grants 1% parry

    Block Rating: 7.9 rating grants 1% block chance

    Hit Rating: 15.8 rating grants 1% hit chance

    Spell Hit Rating: 12.6 rating grants 1% spell hit chance

    Critical Strike Rating: 22.1 rating grants 1% critical strike chance

    Spell Critical Strike Rating: 22.1 rating grants 1% spell critical strike chance

    Haste Rating: 15.8 rating grants 1% haste

    Spell Haste Rating: 15.8 rating grants 1% spell haste

    Resilience Rating: 39.4 rating grants 1% less chance of being struck by any type of critical strike, and 2% less damage taken from critical strikes

    Q u o t e:



    Might I suggest making this easily available in the BC UI? Perhaps as a mouse-over where this rating for your character is shown.

    So like I could mouse over my 75 spell critical strike rating and instead of thinking to myself, "Hmm, wait do I divide that by 22.1 to get my %? Or is it 15.8? What is 75/22.1? Anybody have a calculator?" I can just mouse over and it will say "3.4% chance to critically strike with spells."

    Please do this, math makes my brain bleed.

    The UI will convert your combat rating values and combine them with talents to display them in the character screen interface. Not only are we doing what you're suggesting, we've gone much further. You'll not only be able to see your percentage to crit with spells, but each spell school type, such as fire, ice and shadow. You'll also be able to see your percentage to crit with ranged weapons, along with much more. I'm just providing these values so everyone has insight into how the new system will work.

    I have to agree -- is there any way you could make this more confusing?

    Keep it simple, please.

    I'm simply explaining the system for those who are interested. Trust me, there are many systems in this game that are far more complicated than the new combat rating system. You won't have to focus on these formulas when the game launches. As I just explained in my last post, the UI will convert everything for you into simple percentages.

    But will we be able to quickly access this conversion table in-game, or will we have to page out to an external site or use some third-party mod if we can't recall the exact numbers?

    It's in the same window where your stats are displaying. Only now, there is a tab that you can switch between multiplie windows. One which shows all spell information, one that is melee focused and another which is ranged. It's actually really cool. You'll even be able to see your total plus to healing in this interface.

    So any of you lucky bastages in the beta get to test out this new interface?
    My sanity is not in question...
    It was a confirmed casualty some time ago.


    Light, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they ticked me off.

    I did notice a nice feature in the Character screen that Eyonix described. Essentially both "stat" windows are now controlled by dropdowns. You can leave it as it is or customize it based on your toon. I have the standard on the left and my melee stats on the right. I believe theirs also a dropdown for spellcasting and a couple of others but I'll have to check.
