High Energy Focus damage bonus is 125% ???
« on: August 09, 2012, 01:41:03 AM »

1st screenshot - 1 shot from Mining Blaster at zero flux without HEF - 648 damage on Onslaught shield.
2nd - same, but with HEF = 1460 !?

Was that not Simply 1460 For the two shots? The initial shot's 648 + 812 damage on the second? (which is actually a 25% bonus,) Or had you allowed the flux to fully reset on the onslaughts shield.

No these were separate, and mining blaster's rate of fire is just not enough to produce summary hits like you suggest (which is why is chose it actually).

It had reset shields. Picture with Onslaught status ended up too large for forum, so had to cut out...

Egh, thanks for spotting that. Turns out that in a few cases (for weapons similar to the mining blaster) the damage bonus was being squared. Fixed.

Well, this'll be fun to playtest.
