Yeah, Gravity well appears to be doing much less dmg than revealed in the tool tip.
For instance, I was able to do ~1400dmg per tick according to the tooltip, yet it remains at the ~500 to 700dmg range.
Did several tests.
I assumed it would be resistances but I tried with a buddy who only had 2% resist to kin.
Maybe I am missing something or is this thing just weak?
Grav Well III btw.
Not to mention that Grav Well is actually useless due to the borg heal procs xD but I still wonder where that extra dmg went.

GW was recently changed to have Grav Generators increase the Radius.... to balance this out the damage was lowered.
Tooltips are notorious for being wrong in this game.... don't trust them...
You also need to factor in kinetic resistance of the target in the GW as it is Kinetic damage
GW is a snare that happens to do damage...
It was never intended to be damage that happens to snare...
I agree with you, my test done the same result, damage are between 500/700 per second...most of the time nearly 550...something is broken with gravity well, and its certainly not doing the damage annouce in the tooltip.
Pretty sure that damage drops off as the square of the distance.... ie. tooltip damage = point blank, sitting on the singularity. As a practical matter, it won't happen unless you disable their engines?
Gravity Wells damage is low as long as the enemy shields are up. Take out at least 1 shield facing and you'll see higher damage numbers. Of course things like Sensor Scan, APBeta/Delta or FOMM help to increase its effectiveness.
