If you’re returning to the game, Mod 16 changed the game you already knew. You’ll need to re-learn you what your character(s) does. If you want a high level guide on what to do day 1, check out our blog:

What is Magnitude?
You’ll notice that all your Dailies, encounters & At-Wills now list magnitude. What is magnitude? Well quite simply 100 magnitude just means 100% of your weapon damage (that is the damage range listed on your equipped weapon). So 500 magnitude is 5x your weapon damage. 45 magnitude on at-will means its 45% of your weapon damage, etc. Magnitude at a glance gives you an easy way to compare the damage of your abilities. What it doesn’t account for is activation time of those abilities, nor the cooldown. Nor whether they hit aoe vs single target. All of which can contribute to DPS, which is short for damage per second. Anyhow, we hope this clears up what this new MOD16 “magnitude” thingy is.
Mod 16 Ability Scores
Ability Scores are now universal, but magical and physical damage bonuses are now separate. We’ve got screenshots of the new Ability Scores.
