Swlcalc, gear planner for SWL

link to swlcalc

This web application can be used to plan your gear progression, to visualize the stats you will reach with a given gear and also to share and show others what set of talismans + weapons you use to tackle encounters in PvE and/or PvP.

swlcalc is still in development : if you’re interested in contributing, please refer to the Github page.

I relied on several documents & topics for the SWL data (stats calculations, items lists…). Thanks to all the people that provided these data :

Some former TSW players may find the name & the general look of swlcalc kinda familiar, it’s because I started it from joakibj’s tswcalc project :wink: (thanks again to him).

I hope this will be useful ! Feedbacks are welcome, don’t hesitate to give yours :slight_smile:


Version 1.1.0 is here

New feature : you can know choose any value between 1 and 20/25/30/35/70 for an item level, according to its associated rarity. I guess the main utility of this would be to simulate your current gear on swlcalc, in order to have your exact Item power : then you will be able to visualize all the upgrading alternatives you have to unlock the next Elite level.

A great start. Once you get all the types in it will serve very well for theory crafting certain builds.

Hello Skandi thanks for your comment :slight_smile: actually what do you mean by types ?

The Energy and Efficiency suffixes have their descriptions swapped. Also, suffixes all show %d or %d% instead of the actual value no matter which Quality rank you chose.

Lots of other issues, but I assume you’re aware of most of them and I’ll wait to see how it develops before reporting more.

Though, I will request an “All Intricate/Radiant” button be added as well since that’s what the vast majority of people will be using. Weapon Quality is different and may as well be left manual only.

Nice catch for the Energy/Efficiency swap, I didn’t notice.

Yes, %d% in signets & suffixes descriptions are placeholders for the future, the feature is not yet implemented.
The list of features to be released can be found here. The priority order is top to bottom and was based on my personal judgment so far, but now I will review it with the feedbacks. I’ve added your “All Intricate/Radiant” button request to the list :wink:

Hello ! After a way too long break, the v1.2.0 of swlcalc is finally here and brings several important features that were missing, I hope you will enjoy it :slight_smile:

What’s new :

  • Added basic Anima allocation feature : it can be set either to 100% damage, 100% healing or 100% survivability and it affects AR/HR/HP correctly.
  • Enabled all the primary stats that were missing in the global recap : Combat power, Healing power, Attack Rating, Heal Rating and Hitpoints.
  • All the talismans are now available. Any extraordinary talisman has its bound effect displayed (description text + variable bonus).
  • Bug fix : Energy and Efficiency suffixes are no longer swapped.

What has been done for talismans is still needed for weapons & signets ; it should be part of the next release

Hi, v1.2.1 is here. All the extraordinary weapons were added to swlcalc (in the same way as talismans in previous release). 'Hope it helps !

Hey there - checking your site out for fun. Thanks for your work. I notice that you’re missing a signet slot choice on the DPS head for legendary gear, as quick bug report to you. (Presuming I’m using it correctly.)

EDIT: As I continue to fill it out, I notice the same problem exists for most of the talis. Also, it appears to want to offer me only Matter Creation for my waste (I have a lvl 20 red T&S), etc.

Hey Blodweed, thanks for your comment and sorry for the late reply.

These are not really bugs since signets are not implemented in the current version :smiley: It’s just a placeholder. It was planned to be part of the next release and I had already achieved >50% of it but meanwhile I’ve stopped to work on swlcalc. I have not given up though.

As long as signets (and my motivation) are not available you can still rely on the SWL - Gear & Signets spreadsheet to complement your simulation.

Is this project still ongoing? Or is it abandoned?

I didn’t work on it since July, it’s more like paused than abandoned.

In fact I was hoping to find some motivated people with the ability to contribute :smiley: I was already not playing SWL anymore when I was working on swlcalc, then it was even harder to sustain the motivation when the cabalmates also stopped…

Anyway what I can tell you is :

  • I’ll continue to answer questions here. I do not check frequently enough (is there a way to receive emails on notifications ?) but still I’m not too far away ^^
  • I can’t promise anything but I should go back on swlcalc in a near future to implement some new features. But well I don’t think I’d go through all the planned features (https://github.com/AntoineThebaud/swlcalc/projects/1) unless I get help from someone else

Again, don’t hesitate to raise any bug you could find with this new feature, I might have missed something ^^.

I would help out, but I don’t have the time to do it unfortunately. I have too many projects going as it is. Glad to see an update, though.

Hi @BeeGulper, thank you for the calculator!

it looks like it was already commented on, but Efficiency and Energy descriptions on weapon suffix are still swapped.

Hey uppastbedtime, thanks for your comment I just fixed this issue (for real this time :D), it should be fine now.

Thanks for all the updates to this wonderful tool!

I just noticed that it looks like glyphs are still only set to go up to the max of Intricate. However with Dark Agartha in game now the max should be Elaborate. Could you add that extra pip to the glyph pulldowns?
