Want to improve your SWTOR Healer experience? And unsure what all these stats are about and what they can do you for you?
In this post I will show you exactly which stats you want to keep an eye on as a healer.
(Haven’t chosen your Healer Character yet? You might want to read this post first.)
In SWTOR our characters come with primary and secondary stats. Let’s have a look at the ones that are relevant for healing.
To get the most out of your healing, your primary stats are the most important to focus on. There are 6 of them, but only 4 are important for our purpose:
This one increases your lifepoints. Sounds interesting, no? Well, this one is interesting no matter what class you play.
On the other hand, the following 3 stats all give healers a boost, but are targeted on specific advanced classes:
If you’re playing a Jedi Sage or a Sith Sorcerer class, you will get a boost from this stat for your healing.
If you’re a Commando or a Mercenary, your healing will benefit from this one.
Likewise, this stat is beneficial to Scoundrel’s and Operative’s healing.
Obviously, you want your primary stat on the item that’s best for your class.
Next, when you level up in the game, and get better gear, you will get access to secondary stats.
Again, only a few of these are interesting for those wanting to improve their healing skills.
The 2 most important stats are probably:
Reduces your cast time, and thus enables you to invoke more healing spells in a shorter period of time.
This one increases your Heal.
But the following are interesting too:
Increases your chances to Critical Heal.
Increases the amount of that Critical Heal.
This is a stat that’s specifically geared for PvP-mode. It increases the healing (as well as the damage) that you do, and it also decreases the amount of damage you sustain.
So, remember to focus first on your primary stats, they’re the most important. Choose the stats that are useful for your class.
And then gradually, when you evolve through the game and level up, you’ll get access to more and more secondary stats. And then all you need to do is beef those up as well (and specifically Alacrity and Power).
I hope you now have a better idea of which stats to focus on for your SWTOR healer character.
