AFAIK, the tooltip in 1.1 was adjusted with a lower damage number.

Owned. At least it is "fixed" now. I guess?

That tooltip is wrong, Ion Gas Cylinder hardly goes near 300 before Mitigation.

Mine seems to to be bugged also, would really like to see this fixed.

I wonder if the 3 talent points to increase Ion Gas damage are worth it now...

I believe Ion Gas Cylinder does its extra damage as elemental is it not? Seeing as there is no Mitigation for Tech or Elemental, it would appear to not working correctly.

You're getting pretty much everything mixed up. The tooltip explicitly states that it deals energy damage.

There are four types of attacks: melee, ranged, tech, and force. Melee and ranged attacks must be checked against the target's defense, which means it can be avoided or shielded. Tech and force attacks are not checked against the target's defense at all, so they will always land.

The type of attack has no bearing on the target's mitigation, only the avoidance/shielding.

An attack can deal one of four types of damage: kinetic, energy, internal, elemental. Kinetic and energy damage are mitigated by the target's armor rating while internal and elemental damage have their own specific damage reduction (generally much lower).

Since IGC is a proc and not its own ability, it will always be applied given the conditions are met (after a rocket punch or random chance on rapid shots or unload hit), which means that the ability its procs from must land first. The damage type, energy, is then applied against the target's armor.

I don't know how much armor NPCs have. It would be better if the people concerned that this may be a bug were to test it on other players rather than guessing from the numbers that it doesn't seem to work. Find an equal level player and record the damage number and compare that to the calculated value based on their damage reduction.

Ion cylinder gives you +60% armour, +5% resistance, increased taunt, enables rail shot, and potentially a brief slow. I really don't think it is intended to do much damage...

As for expectations, we've always said that are not making another Star Wars sandbox, we are creating a different game.
I quote Zoeller now. Zoeller quotes are cool.
