Yes, though my results were inconclusive. I saw no apparent effect on Science kit powers, but certain weapon attacks showed the +25 bonus in their tooltip. Different weapons showed different affected attacks, with a Split Beam Rifle actually showing a +225 bonus for the Auto Targeting Beam and melee weapons showing a bonus only with the Sword Pummel/Cross Strike. The problem is, I don't have a combat log parser available to do anything more than observational testing... which showed it doing little more than the effects of the debuff you apply to trigger it.
There are a couple of posts on the subject on the Official Trait Revamp Feedback Thread at
. My observations were #294 and silversera's were #295.
