SNB and shield Distro Doff's Coming To A Patch Near You
 
The Shield Heal applied by the Shield Distribution Officer, known as the Brace for Impact Duty Officer, has been reworked:

It no longer has a heal-over-time component, but is comprised of a single lump-sum heal.
It is no longer dependent upon Auxiliary Power and Flow Capacitors, but now receives a benefit from Shield Emitters.
It can now only be activated a single time within any 15-second period, per officer of this type equipped.

The buff stripping proc provided by unique Energy Weapons officers, known as the Subnuc Duty Officer, has been reworked:

Chance to proc has been increased from 0.5% to 1%.
The target of this proc will become immune to further procs from this same type of duty officer for 15seconds after being hit with it.
This immunity is specific to this Duty Officer power, but will prevent further effects regardless of the source of the proc.
I.e, even a 5-man team with these equipped will max out at one proc per target, per 15
second period.


While the shield distribution doff looks to be a fair balance pass the snb doff just became more overpowered than ever. The removal of the hot proc option is a good thing that alone would prevent three purples from overprocing per activation. Great job on these guys. Now on to the major fail on the snb doffs.

First off 15 second immunity doesn't do a damn thing if all of your buffs got stripped. Second as proven by turkish rp heroes tests the proc didn't really take effect but around every 15 seconds anyway. Mostly not during that whole test.

Now the reincreased proc chance is gonna bring back those dual scatter volley escorts back out of the woodwork. So now that craptic did it's balance pass on these here is your excuse to use them again QQ free. I think they tried to sneak this in during the initial nerd tears the Vesta class set is letting out.

Sorry, but I don't care. I'm done with this game now. I say use it all. It's not gonna change a thing in this game if you stand on any type of moral ground to try to bring change through example. No matter how bad it gets, Cryptic will find a way to make it worse

Kinda confused about the SDO changes
 
I'm a little bit confused on what part of the change means for SDO DOFFs. I know it'll be a lump sum heal, and be affected by Shield Emitters, but this is what I'm not quite understanding:

It can now only be activated a single time within any 15-second period, per officer of this type equipped.

So...does that mean it'll only proc up to once per activation of BFI, even if you have three DOFFs equipped, or can it activate multiple times, just only once per officer?

If you want to abuse something then go nuts, honestly. I've tried my best to play clean but at this point if someone goes with the cheese I just say gg and move on, there's nowhere you could even begin to draw line in the sand anyway.

yup, they giveth with one hand and taketh with the other... I saw no other option than becoming a PvEhero after seing this patch and the Vesta specs...

I'm pretty sure GGreroll meant something else...

There is where my post went. I was wondering where that was. I'm still rather confused on the SDO DOFFs though.
