Systems:

  • Trait - Sure Footed:
    • Resolved an issue where many characters were gaining the benefits of Sure Footed while crouching or aiming without slotting Sure Footed as a trait.
  • Fixed a description error on Elite Obelisk Swarmers (Hangar Pets) that indicated they have Attack Pattern Beta. They do not possess this ability.
    • This is a text change only.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing Tetryon Beam Arrays to deal less damage than intended while enhanced with Fire-at-Will.
    • This applies to players and NPCs.
  • Resolved an issue that was allowing Fire-at-Will to apply certain enhancements twice per activation or firing cycle.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing certain powers to never apply Critical Severity to successful Critical hits such as when using Fire at Will.
  • Voth Aceton Field Generator Console
    • Fixed a tooltip error on Voth Aceton Mode that was causing it to state that its maximum damage was far lower than it actually is.
    • The Subsystem power drain aspect of Voth Aceton Mode now benefits slightly more from Flow Capacitors skill.
  • Tholian Mines (deployed by EV-Suit Tholians on the Ground) now draw fire from NPCs.
  • The FX light attached to the activation of the Romulan Combat Environmental Suit (Vet bonus) now emits from the correct location on the helmet.

  • The team-wide Dodge and Avoidance bonuses provided by the Bridge Officer Trait "Veteran" no longer stack. Only a single "Veteran" bonus will provide to the Team.

    • The Resistance buff will persist for the full 10 seconds, even if the Stealth is cancelled.
  • "Assign Raiding Party" may now only be activated while in Sector Space.
    • The effects did not carry from Ground maps to Space maps, so being able to use it elsewhere only allowed a player to waste their cooldown.
  • A few versions of Phased Tetryon Dual Cannons and Dual Heavy Cannons that were previously unusable on Warbirds now work correctly.
  • Voth Palisade Science Vessel and Voth Bastion Deck Cruiser can now choose to have no prefix when renaming.
