HE benefits from none of these. It will get no benefit. End of story.

Also this is a 5 second buff. Ypu'll get maybe 4 seconds of enhanced TSS healing before it wears off if i understand how buffs work with over time abiklitis right.
Well I'm going off the resist word in Bort's post:

Surely that'll be polarize hull, and as HE has a resist factor that'll be included.
Although he says resist pertaining to control effects. I'm not sure what "control effects" specifically are.

Whilst HE and PH are heavily influenced by Aux power they're not damage or debuff. So unsure where buffs fall into it, if at all.


Would be good if Borticus could clarify on what "resist skills" means and "whatever aux based powers" and if the likes of HE, TSS or PH get helped by this skill or not.
