Useful Warzone/PvP Info & Statistics

Hey everyone, ranked warzone will be coming in patch 1.2 (scheduled for March) so for many of you this might be a busy time to grind valor/commendations/battlemaster gear. Here is a list of compiled information on Warzone /PVP information that I think many of you will find handy. Most of the information is not from me but rather from other members of the SWTOR community and credits will be given where needed.

Feb 22 update: made some corrections to the Ilum buff system, added a note to the total expertise levels for battlemaster gear, and added the valor info for rank 72 (thanks Titheon)

Resolve system – mechanics


Source:

Taugrim’s Understanding Resolve Mechanic

Resolve is the circular bar to the left of your character’s portrait.

resolvebar

It fills to full at 800 but does not provide CC immunity until it reaches 1000 (bar turns white).

  • Stun give 200 resolve to affected player per second of the stun
  • Mez give 100 resolve to affected player per second of the mez (mez is a longer duration CC that breaks if enemy takes damage – originally an EQ1 term)
  • Knockback/Pull (grapple) give 400 resolve
  • Snare/Root do not give any resolve and still applicable to targets with CC immunity (>= 1000 resolve)
  • Stun/Mez/Knockback abilities applied to an enemy under 1000 resolve that will push the enemy to or over 1000 resolve will generate resolve at 150% (i.e. an 2 second stun applied to someone at 800 resolve will generate 2x 200 *1.5 = 600 resolve, pushing the target to 1400 resolve.
  • CC abilities applied to someone at or over the 1000 threshold do not add any additional resolve

Resolve drains at a certain rate

  • For players under 1000 resolve, resolve start to drain once the CC effect ends at a rate of 25 resolve per second.
  • For players with 1000 or higher resolve, resolve will drain as soon the 1000 mark is reached at a rate of 100 resolve per second.

Ilum Valor system/buffs


  • War effort – this buff can be stacked upto 5 times depending on how many objectives your team control. It give you 200% valor bonus per player kill on Ilum for the first stack, each of the subsequent stacks give you 50%, totaling at 400% valor bonus per player kill with 5 stacks. Also, controlling all 5 objectives  give you an additional 300% valor buff per player kill on Ilum, bringing the total to 700%. The defender buff below give you an additional 200% valor bonus, bringing the total to 900% or 20 + 180 valor per player killed on Ilum. This buff also grant you 100 additional valor  per warzone competition at the first stack, each of the subsequent stacks give you 25 additional valor, totaling at 200 additional valor per warzone completion. This buff last 60 minutes. (source: sithwarrior.com thread)
  • Defender – Defender buff is granted to players on Ilum who fight near an objective that their faction control. It give valor bonus per player kill (about 200 bonus)
  • 20 base valor is granted per player kill on Ilum – this is  modified by the war effort and defender buff. If the enemy player was recently killed, you get 0 valor.
