Chart using a Typical Power and SO1 Enhancements


-- by Ishin Ryu

The chart below illustrates the effect of different enhancement combinations on DPS (Damage per Second).  The higher the DPS, the faster you are able to subdue your opponent.  In this example, I was looking for which combination of Damage Increase and Accuracy Increase enhancements is best.  That is, is it better to hit the opponent more frequently or to hit him less but hit him really hard.

Notes This example is based off of a fictitious power that does 50 damage and takes 4 seconds to execute.
  I based it on using SO1 enhancements that are my level (33.3% modifier).
  This chart takes the accuracy cap of 95% into consideration
Caveat The chart is based on both you and the mob having no buffs or debuffs.  Specifically, if you commonly fight mobs that lower your accuracy, you may want to add one more accuracy enhancement than the chart would indicate as optimal.
