Are the Data Cores still bugged and take ~no damage from AE abilities like Rage Jugg Smash, Sniper Orbital and Scatter Bombs and Sorc Death Fields? This bug has been around since since ~1.4 (others have reported it) up until Patch 2.0 (where i saw it for the first time on my Sniper and Jugg).

5/21/13 Bug report forum

I think the only people who have done this fight in NiM are the guys from DnT. Did you guys notice this happening at all? Any info is appreciated.

I was using orbital on cooldown but didn't go out of my way to check. certainly felt like it did but a fairly nebulous answer is the best i can do Did you guys get DG's then?

Nope they called it last night after 2 hours when Eudorus had to leave and they swapped in another tank (who was doing it for the first time).

The data cores take damage but you have to position your AoE's reticle at the exact spot. This can be hard to do as a Rage Jugg, especially hard as an Engineering Sniper, but can be somewhat offset IF you position the center of your (Death Field and Orbital Strike) reticle a few inches towards the middle front of the Data Core's center.

I always wondered if rolling against a core with scatter bombs would work

It did work consistently but only in the PTS. In LIVE, no.

I still run into this problem pretty regularly with my Balance sage. Missed FiB is big, two misses is huge--the difference between killing a core myself and needing help. I've used several different tips as read on these forums, and I still can't get my "accuracy" to 100%. Every time it's my turn to hit cores, I wish I was running a sentinel.

The bug is indeed still here. Roovin sniper confirmed that the Data Cores in NiM Operator IX still bug out on AE abilities. Only 1 out of his 3 Orbital ticks dealt damage.

Please fix, this has been out for a long time now.
