So I recently acquired one of the new romulan consoles, picking graviton generators to boost the effectiveness of my gravwell 3 that my MVAE uses. However while putting the build together I noticed that the tooltip doesn't seem to update the repel at all when I slot consoles in or out.
To confirm this, I went to a mission map (Azure Nebula Rescue) and spent some time before the mission swapping out consoles. I tested with a normal +graviton generators console, the Tachyokinetic Converter, and the romulan graviton generator console.
*none* of these affect gravity well's repel. At all. In the slightest. It remained at -0.54 throughout the entire thing.
Is the tooltip wrong perhaps? Or does gravity well just not benefit from skills anymore?
Further testing indicates that almost no powers that purportedly benefit from graviton generators actually do.
The only one I can see actually benefitting is tractor beam repulsors- with three consoles goes from a +6 repel to a +7.5 repel.
Tractor Beam doesn't list its slow rating, so I have no way of discerning if it's affected at all.
Graviton Pulse, Temporal Inversion neither are affected by graviton generators, despite their tooltips specifying that they are.
As a note: Gravwell is still affected by particle generators, so I'm inclined to believe that the fault is with the skill, and not the individual powers. It's probable that somewhere along the line, the skill got 'unhooked' from the powers, explaining why it seems to affect so little.
Eh? Graviton generators isn't specified as '+repel', although that's certainly what it does for TBR.
It's still said that it applies to TBR, TB, GW, GP, TI, and the like, and it doesn't do anything to them that I've noticed. Regardless of how many points I have in it, gravwell's radius never increases, and its -repel never strengthens.
Moreover, as all skills apply as a percentage value increase, the idea that graviton generators wouldn't strengthen a -repel is kinda odd, because as we all know from basic math, -1x1 = -1.
Similarly, if graviton generators applied say, a 1.3% modifier to the strength of a power which references it, then it wouldn't matter if that power had a -repel, a +repell, a hold like tractor beam, a speed/turn rate drain like graviton pulse/temporal inversion... none of that would matter, because the percentage increase would just be applied against the pre-existing value, and all modifiers would be affected properly.
Instead, graviton generators seems to only affect tractor beam repulsors, and nothing else.
