So what is the measure for this value?  What does it mean to have a soft cap of 150,000.  I know that it reduces the overall ranking of survivability stats, but I guess I'm not sure what a value of 100,000 would look like as opposed to 200,000.

I just created an account to ask the exact same thing.  I'd imagine that as new content is released the soft cap should be raised, but what's a good soft cap for all content currently available?  I'm trying to get "perfect gear" so I can everything I need to roll into Ulduar with the best possible setup I can have.

A soft cap of 150k means that survivability has full value up to 150k, then slowly starts tapering off after that. Here's an example of how it looks with a 140k soft cap: http://dl-client.getdropbox.com/u/38028/Rawr.Bear.SurvSoftCap.140k.png

EDIT: 140k is a good value for the hardest hitting content in the game right now, which is why I chose that as the default.

Alright, I was looking for what the "good value" was, wasn't sure if it was the default because that's a good value, or because it was just arbitrarily chosen.

Thanks, keep up the amazing work!
