Four months after release and you still haven't fixed this passive?

Shadow's Training
Increases your total Endurance by 5 per rank, and increases the base damage dealt by Project by 25%.

This passive is NOT increasing the damage on Project or Shock. Fix it or change the tooltip. There's no excuse for this to be ongoing into another month.

Hey there,

I'd like to say officially that Shock/Project do in fact deal 25% more damage if you are a Shadow or an Assassin. The tooltip, however, only displays the lower value which is an issue we are working on addressing but cannot at this time.

If you strongly feel that same level/gear's classes are not dealing this extra damage, please bug this in game with the new combat logs and we can investigate further. However, all the internal testing we have done on this issue confirms solidly that the extra damage is being applied.

Suppose they don't want 7k projects from infils and 4k projects from kc to bring new threads filled with tears about the op shadows and sins?

I propose a better fix, remove then 25% from tooltip, and make project deal internal dmg for shadows / shock for sins. This way you have good dmg vs all armor types, and don't depend on a freaking 12-15s discharge / force breach to do some decent dmg (if it crits).

Because besides this little ability this class is just OK or even OP in matter of dmg.

So it's okay to have a misleading tooltip? Lol. Simple fix: Reword the tooltip.

No.Reread the tooltip.

ok

increases endurance by 5 per rank, yes you get more endurance with every rank.

increases damage dealt by shock by 25%...... once....... when you train rank one. it does not increase it by another 25% each rank after that, if it did shocks would be way too strong

new rank would say 50% instead... The bonus is applied and it was proven working correctly in january, no issue here.

OP with an Hybrid tank spec maybe, not with a pure spec.

I really want bigger projects! And also add them a different effect - shadow only (in your face sins!) depending what you project. IE: rocks - target endurance debuffed by 10%, lasts 12 seconds, robots - target main stat debuffed by 10%, lasts 12 seconds, debris - target armor rating debuffed by 10%, lasts 12 seconds.

I'd like to see more debuffs added to tank specs in general, like debuff endurance or main stat (str, aim, cunning, willpower etc).
