Actual Result:
Shadow : Force Synergy can proc off Technique Crits
Assassin : Exploitive Strikes cannot proc off Charge Crits

Intended Result:
Both advanced class should work exactly the same

P.s. This is not a new bug, been live since the release of the game.

Wait...really?
Please fix this BioWare! This would be great, it'd really help keeping explotive strikes up.

This is a huge bug. How do we know it's not proccing? Can people post combat logs please pointing out where it should have procced? Or actually if it doesn't, posting an entire log will not show a single proc from charges.

This is a big bug. Bump.

Is that enough logs?
Also very easy to check on a dummy, just saber strike until you see a crit yellow number, il get a log up for both side on LIVE since i cant access PTS but i asked someone to test it out on it and ive looked at Shadow log that still shows it working on their side.

EDIT:
Parse with Saber Strike Spam

Hi folks,

Thanks for your reports!

I moved this thread out of the PTS Forums, because it isn't reporting a PTS bug. Please remember that if something is an issue on the Live Servers, even if you see that it's still a concern when testing, post your bug report outside of the PTS forums. For guidelines on posting in PTS, please see this thread.

As for this issue itself: we are aware of this, and it will be fixed in Game Update 2.0. In the meantime, we've added it to the Known Issues.

On a side note, I love seeing you guys talk about how to best get confirmation of the issue and provide us with information such as combat logs! While this didn't need that level sleuthing, it's cool to see and would certainly come in handy with other issues. o/''\o

This is the kinda stuff I miss by only PvPing now, I'd never notice this in a PvP parse -- awesome work!

And I take it specifically for better synergy of Deception's Maul with force crits. Sounds like imp side could be doing a bit better on Deception.

Ok, so this is weird and it's not making sense to me, I don't have a shadow so if shadows can help out please.

On pts, in deception and with 8 points in Darkness in order to get +18% damage on the Surging Charge, my Charges were hitting for 820. Always... they do not crit. I could not see my surging charge critting even once. Maybe I had a string of back luck and haven't parsed long enough, can anyone verify that Surging Charge can crit for them or is the damage always the same?

Now, Exploitative Strikes says that it increases crit chance when a force attack crits. If surging charge never crits, why would it proc Exploitative Strikes?

Or does Shadow Technique actually crit for Shadows and in turn procs Force Synergy?

I cant help with the PTS on my side but its probably a string of badluck, ive seen people get crits in PTS log before.
