The research lab scientist doff dominion lockbox procs with all abilities
The new ground research lab scientist duty officer is bugged. The confuse power procs with many science powers, such as: nanite health monotir, triage (in this case the confuse affect allies), vascular regenerator, medical tricorder, tricorder scan III, and all the abilities from the physicist kit too. I suspect it procs with all science powers, except: scientific aptitude II, nanoprobe infestation III.

When we use a triage III we can see the neural neutralizer ability animation when we use triage and it affects allies.

Tested on a fed char with two research lab scientist doffs with a medic Mk X purple kit and a physicist Mk X kit.

The tooltips also mention the confuse proc on all the abilities i've mentionned.


EDIT: The team is aware and is working on a resolution. Thanks! -Brandon

This is true, and it is TERRIBLE!!!! This literally breaks Ground PvP. I don't usually complain about things that are "broken" or whatever, but this make GPvP nearly unplayable. I went in for my first match today, and discovered that for 50-75% of the time, I couldn't shoot at the enemy. It was ridiculous. Ground PvP is one of the few things that held my interest in this game for a long time, and to see it pretty much completely trashed by a grievous bug such as this is a blow.

Fix Tucoura
This is BAD! Please fix it. It appears that all the new abilities that are being added, Doff, Boffs, and what else has no filter! It really looks like sloppy work Cryptic!

Well that's good. Make sure you also work on the confuse of people in your faction. One of the players using it said they confused each other (their teammates) just as much.

Additionally, it can be used to confuse level 55 security guards on ESD. I saw one mow down people around the exchange. It wasn't pretty. Three people dead in one burst from 55 minigun.

Edit: Someone is repeatedly confusing the security NPCs in ESD, and they are on a rampage. So this needs a fix ASAP not just for GPvP, but for innocent people trying to access the exchange.

By the way, the confuse is not resisted by willpower.

I'm sorry, I know it is terrible, but I also find that this is just freaking hilarious.

Oh god I'm still laughing even after being shot to pieces by a drunken SecOff. And I'm a tac so there's no way I did that!

I don't think it was funny. The player in question noted that the more deaths there were, the more people would be talking, and the faster the issue would be resolved, and the faster we could all get back to GPvP. Unfortunately, rather than demonstrating once or twice, then reporting or posting here, the player repeatedly confused NPCs, allowing them to kill many unsuspecting players who were checking the exchange.

Incidentally, using the confuse on other players in ESD allows them to attack things and use unallowed powers, like engineer turrets and cover shield, etc.

10 odd people doing it on ESD zone 14.. exchange is a warzone.

Thank goodness there isn't a Death Penalty for dying there. :rolleyes:

Lol, I used to hate patch Thursdays because they broke so many things in the game but these days I can hardly wait for the next patch to see what new fun exploits Cryptic is giving us! Keep up the good work devs. The game hasn't been this fun for a loooong time. :)
