Re-upload of that plot since the forum appears to have lost it. O_o

 

Also, new version of the spreadsheet coming soon with the attack speed stuff updated to reflect what we learned today from Josh Sawyer. :)

It took me 10 minutes to realize this excel file had multiple tabs. Just in case somebody else is as stupid as I am.

The second tab is really cool. I don't understand any of this math, but the second tab understands everything for me.

 

Does anyone know what base accuracy each class has?

Yep, they all have too much and it makes Dexterity pretty trivial overall.

I dunno about that... Dexterity's about on par with MIG as far as increasing dps goes. I personally think the starting values are pretty well balanced (though I'd like a character with 25 ranged ACC who isn't the Ranger).

 

EDIT: To elaborate, there aren't diminishing returns persay on Accuracy... it all depends on what the enemy's Deflection value is (as per that chart). In general though, for a character with reasonable MIG, +15 ACC (the difference between 3 and 18 DEX) will still give you a significant amount of damage bonus - 15-25% depending on enemy Deflection and your MIG. It's all about marginal gains. A Fighter might start out with a very good ACC value, but increasing DEX will still get him about as much dps as increasing MIG.
