Not resolve
But a 30 second cooldown, before being KB'd again

It does respect resolve? Or at least I know overload does. I tested it out multiple times to find out if it was the knockback or the root (from speccing into it) that increased the resolve meter.

a) I tried it once w/ no resolve, and the meter went up which showed that some portion of it did apply.
b) I tried again after the resolve meter was full and the player was not knocked back but the root was still applied.

A + B = overload being subject to resolve.

...Unless I'm terrible at math, which is quite possible.

To my understanding, both pulls and knockbacks build resolve.

What doesn't build resolve and needs to are roots.

The immobilize effect from things like force charge definitely needs to.
FYI, it’s not “elitist” to expect people to be competent at a task to which they have dedicated hundreds of hours.
Everything currently wrong with the Sith Warrior/JK design.
