I've just been playing around with a new purple Energy Weapon DOff (Beam variant) and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed that it might not be working...at all?

I'm running a Heavy Escort with one copy of Beam Overload 3 on a 30 second timer. I've taken the DOff into several instances and paid attention to my BO cooldown and I have yet to see a proc. I've also sat outside ESD and spammed my BO button and STILL no proc?

Is anyone else noticing this too?

NVM...it must just be crap luck. I just now got a proc pushing me to shared cooldown.

In a way calling it worthless is correct and I will explain why after testing it out with a purple cannon one I got.

The reason why its worthless and the systems designers whoever put it in failed in epic proportions to realize the systems they work on in this game when putting this in. This is due to the fact that cannon and beam attack skills have global cooldowns. So even if you just put one purple like the one I got out of a doff pack on and just one rapid fire on a negh var it states 30 second cd reduction where as because of the global cool down when it does proc which is rare in itself is that it triggers the global cooldown of 15 seconds so its pretty much no better than a white/common one.

I do understand devs are only human but there is just so many incompetence one can stand especially when you are putting broken things out to make money it just isn't good business.

This problem is even worse for the beam DOff when used with fire at will. It can have no cooldown lower than 20 sec.
