Assualt Specialist & Cybertech Grenade Synergy Question

Hello, I am one who likes to experiment with multiple specs, and study my talents as I test them out. I have a 50 BH, and I am also leveling a Trooper, both with Cybertech Crew Skill. I was looking over my talents in the Assault Specialist tree (For Vanguard) and the Burnout talent reads in addition to the tech crit chance increase

"-damage dealt by periodic elemental effects by 30% on targets below 30% max health."

I kept that in mind and looked to my Cybertech grenades, specifically the Wynz-Tek Firestorm - Use: Sets up to 5 enemy targets in a 6 meter area ablaze, dealing 2540 elemental damage over 12 seconds.

I have never made this reusable 50 grenade as of yet, simply because my materials had other priorities, but I was wondering if anyone knew, tested or otherwise, if the DoT damage from that grenade it also increased by 30% from the Burnout talent. Thoughts?

No idea dude but as the tooltip describes it, it really shouldnt matter even if it is a external source. My thought is that it's still your dot even if it is from a cybertech granade. Perhaps ask a dev member.

You can probably test it yourself... the grenade has no damage variance; it should always deal the same damage. Just check whether the damage per tick increases on near dead opponents.
