Our Beginners Guide has been updated with a guide explaining combat ratings, the additional stats on gear in World of Warcraft, in full detail. Don't be confused by all the numbers when our guide is out there to help!
There are a lot of statistics to track in World of Warcraft and a lot of them can be somewhat confusing. There is a group of statistics that we call Combat Ratings which grants your character powerful offensive or defensive boons in the form of increased damage or the ability to mitigate incoming damage. These combat ratings are expressed in a simple number form that can translate into an easy to understand percentage (such as 1% to avoid an attack or 1% chance to do double damage).
Our Beginners Guide to Combat Ratings will solve all the questions you've ever had about haste, crit rating, and more.
