SWTOR Vanguard DPS Ability Stats

SWTOR Vanguard DPS Ability Stats by Heezdedjim

These are the base (untalented), minimum damage stats for all the Vanguard DPS abilities. I did not include the abilities that are primarily for crowd control or mobility with damage included as a bonus (e.g., Storm).

The (*) indicates attacks that do weapon damage (the ones that are classed as rifle attacks); which are significant because those are the ones that proc the DOT from Plasma Cell and the secondary damage from Ion Cell.
