Hey all, check out the link below to watch a video of how it works.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJugd...ature=youtu.be

Things I noticed up front:

1) You cannot right-click the loading buff off once you've activated the ability.

2) Once all missiles are loaded, you have 5 minutes to use them before they go away. Once all missiles have been used, the ability goes on cooldown.

3) It takes approximately 18 seconds to load all 4 missiles.

i admit, my powertech is in ****** gear for PvP so I can't speak too much to the damage done by it, only the functionality of it!

Immediate thought..... they have a free damaging attack while cc'd, so it will be more challenging to cc cap a node on them!

Seems like a lot of the new abilities are like that. Which is awesome to be able to do something while stunned the number one complaint I have had. I want to say thanks for doing all these videos just great that you are doing them so that we can at least know what is going on.

i was able to click the buff off to set it on cooldown after they had all loaded (i had been sitting at a node doing nothing and wanted to reset the cooldown).

i did like it tho, especially being off the GCD

you can click off the buff when they're all loaded, but you can't click off the loading buff itself

Great explanation - LOL at firing it from while in Whirlwind. So if you don't deplete the last missile, the cannon won't go on CD for 1.5 min? What's the CD on each missile reload - 15-20 seconds?

I don't have a Powertech, but this just got even more awesome.

Not sure I understand your question.

the ability CD is 1.5 minutes. When it is clicked for the first time, you get two buffs. One buff 'loads' your missiles until you have four missiles. While loading, you can fire your missiles, as long as you have one to fire. the loading buff lasts about 18 seconds. so, approx 4 seconds to load a missile. You can only load a total of four missiles.

The missiles themselves will stay loaded and ready to fire for around 4 minutes and 45 seconds. after that time, or when you use all of your missiles, the ability goes on cooldown
