Power is what determines your damage output. Power is used in all damage calculations, and is contested by your opponents defense.
Total Power can be calculated with the following formula:
Power = (([stat] + [stat bonuses]) / 2) + [weapon damage] + [damage bonuses]
The "weapon damage" is the base damage of your equipped weapon, and the "damage bonuses" are any buffs that apply to damage.
A Melee character with 9 Strength, with armor that provides +2 Strength, and a weapon that does 5 damage, would calculate their Power as follows:
[(9 + 2) / 2] + 5 = 10.5 Power
- Main article: Skill
Damage for combat skills is calculated from DPS rather than raw Power. This normalizes skill damage across all weapons, which prevents both weapons with a higher attack rate (and therefore lower raw damage) from dealing very little damage with skills and weapons with a low attack rate (and therefore higher raw damage) from dealing far too much damage.
[skill damage] = Power * [attack speed]
The "attack speed" is your equipped weapon's base attack speed multiplied by any attack speed bonuses you have.
