You might notice that there is a new menu item in the upper right of this page that says Guides.
With all of the changes to how stats work over the last several expansions I’ve been spending some time going through the various forums and trolling through EQ2U to try and figure out just what stats are important for each class. I’ve got a list for most of my main classes and I’m working on the list for other classes now. I’m in the process of creating pages for each class and what stats are important for them which I intend to put in this Guide section.
To start it off I’ve also added a guide with some useful settings for the various game options that might make your lives easier.
While I’ve been digging for all of this info I’ve come across a couple of sites that are useful for everyone so I thought I’d put the links here as well as add them to the Links section.
First up a couple of places to go and look at your character as well as those of other players:
If you’re trying to understand all of the gear changes there are a couple of useful threads over on the official forums that you should probably read through:
Itemization Magna CartaThis is from one of the devs and explains the thinking behind the gear/stat changes.
Combat Mechanics and Player Progression: This is old and some of the info is a bit outdated but it’s still a useful reference to have around.
DPS and Multi-Attack Adjustments: A short post that explains how the DPS and Multi-Attack changes work and what impact they have.
Some of the Current Systems Formulas: While it’s not an exhaustive list it does give you an idea of what some of the stats do and how increasing them will impact your character.
