    Default Soft cap, or no soft cap?

    So, I saw there was a pretty detailed, involved, mathematical post on this, which made my head hurt. :-p

    I was just told that there was no soft cap, or the soft cap is now around 1600.

    There is probably a lot more that goes into the inner workings of this, but my little simple test seems to indicate differently.

    I stripped some wisdom buffs (I'm on my fury) and got down to 1201 wisdom. I had 12,946 power and the damage on my thunderbolt was 6367-9734. Without changing anything about what I was wearing or group makeup, same potency, same ability mod, I put up my wisdom to 1298. thats +97. My power went up to 13,019 (an increase of 73) and thunderbolt damage went up to 6472-9902 (an increase of 95-168).

    Then I increased my wisdom to 1401 (An increase of 103. My power went up to 13,050 (an increase of 31) and my thunderbolt damage went up to 6576-10069 (An increase of 104-167).

    So in raw power from 1201 to 1298 (+97) I got 73 power, and from 1298 to 1401 (+103) only gave me 31 power. -42 power for +6 wisdom. Seems like it's diminishing. Though the low end of my thunderbolt actually increased more with the 1401 wisdom, but the high end was also 1 point lower. And the damage would probably be a lot more complicated then that, because it would be the base value that changed, but it's then modified by my potency and ability mod, etc.

    Power should be a much simpler judge, I'd think... and it definitely seems to diminish.

    Anyone able to give me the simple answer if there is a soft cap, and what it is?

    You should make 18 more posts instead of asking your questions in one. In fact this website has a 1 question per post polict, and in this one theres more than that, with the initial question being in the title itself.
