I'm playing on the alpha right now and I have no clue how much stagger I have, % wise. It just says it's based on agility and iron skin brew makes stagger 75% more effective. 75% of what? I have no idea what my mitigation is. Please add some way to tell how much stagger you currently have

I agree with this - it should be clear what the default stagger percentage is. This should be added to the Character Pane.

No promises yet, but the character sheet is a possible solution we might try here. Because Stagger now uses a more complex calculation akin to armor, it's difficult to present it in a tooltip. For the moment, the salient points are:

1) You want Agility to drive the value of Stagger, similarly to how all tanks now want Strength/Agility to make sure their armor/AM keeps up with content they're tanking.

2) In current alpha, with par gear against the content you're fighting, Stagger amounts are similar to what they'd been before the change (40% baseline, 70% when you have Ironskin Brew up, etc.).
