# 5 Combat Logging
04-20-2013, 09:50 PM
This ability has never shown in the combat log. It's been reported on the wiki at http://www.stowiki.org/Ability:_Charged_Particle_Burst. I don't believe your tooltip is bugged, but from using this ability in the past I believe that the secondary shield damage drops off extremely fast with distance.

Personally I would go with photonic shockwave in its place for disables of all things and if you want shield drains, stick to tachyon beam or a tractor beam with a purple doff assigned.

I have had little success for this skill outside of brief usage in Kerrat warzone for locating a wayward cloaked Bird of Prey. Hope this helps.
