Changes to Attack Patterns

The "Attack Pattern" family of powers have also been reconfigured to be more versatile:
  • Attack Pattern Alpha: Remains a Self Damage buff
  • Attack Pattern Beta: Remains as a Targeted Damage resistance debuff (one player will no longer be able to stack this debuff on a target multiple times, however, a team of players working together can still use this ability to much the same effect, as it will still stack from multiple sources)
  • Attack Pattern Delta: Self/Ally Damage Resistance Buff. Enemies that attack a target with this effect receive a damage resistance debuff (this ability can now also be used on yourself)
  • Attack Pattern Omega: This ability now grants a Self Damage Buff, Movement Buff, damage resistance buff and Control Immunity.
