I just got my first Antiproton Beam Bank this morning, and I was a bit surprised at what I saw. "809 Phaser Damage"
So thinking it was just a typo, I just put on thee Antiproton mags and checked the listed DPS on the weapon bar. "809 Phaser Damage" So.. Being very weary now, I transwarped to Sol and bought a MK IV phaser relay.
Sure enough, "858 Phaser Damage".
I would be a lot less concerned about this if I had skilled into phasers, but I'm a disruptor tard, so I can't really exploit this bug.
I have already filed the bug report about it, but given the fact that I have bug reports from Head Start that have not even been acknowledged.... I decided to post about it. Forum threads seem to get noticed a lot sooner then ticket number 653029.
Edit: Added in screenshot. Because as we all know, pics or it didn't happen.
Edit: Put in actual ticket ID for accurate referencing.
Edit: Upon further investigation of the other AP weapons, it appears that the bug is running purely with the Dual AP Beam Banks, which also have a bugged item icon. However, this is still a somewhat serious issue.
Kinda surprised that this got through the internal testing, if there was any.
Tooltips are often incorrect/misleading in STO currently (unfortunately). Text problem =/= bug.
Got shoot something with the antiproton weapons and check the combat log. It'll say the actual damage type there, rather than what the tooltip thinks the damage is. If it's actually doing phaser damage, then you get to call it a bug. If it is in fact dong antiproton damage, then you do not. Also, I think abilities and items that affect weapon damage affect output if the weapon type is that (ie. with a +10 tetryon console, you do +10 if a tetryon named weapon is equipped, rather than +10 if you're doing tetryon damage.) I could be wrong, though.
I'll be picking up the first of two dual cannons tomorrow, so I'll be able to see if that bug is crossing over to all of them, or just the beam banks for now. Hopefully it's just a single-item bug, given its icon is also boned.
