# 1 Power drain
08-25-2012, 08:02 AM
have a look at this image:

http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/6...2082516414.jpg

I have 6 points in insulators, I run 122 power to aux + 25 from RMC... = 147

Still, Tykens+Plasmonic Leech manages to reduce Aux power to 0.

I notice I have a third debuff, but i "think" this is a disruptor breech. I don't know any power drain abilities that use the generic icon.

So leech is supposed to cap at... 16 is it now?

And my Aux is at 0... meaning that leech drained 16, and Tykens drained at least 131 from all subsystems? (That should be nowhere near possible, even if I didn't have a single points in insulators. I think Tykens can't pull more than 30ish at most))

Now something tells me something broke in STO... but what?

Looks like lolaron proc to me.

I've drained ships with em completely with my Vorcha, just spamming my space bar.

must be two of them then... at least... don't think they drain more than about 50.

Bur if I'm hit with multiple (2-3) of them, shouldn't the debuff have a stack number?

Not that I've seen when doing them to others, or getting them.

Na That's a disruptor proc... its got 9 seconds left and lolarons are only 5 seconds.

The polaron proc is strong yes... but in general at this point I don't think the resist to power drain is working AT all for any drain skills. It really is to bad the borg don't shoot siphens or tykens the issue would be solved in a hot patch. lol

So the lesson is: Polaron drain is just as bugged as Siphon drain?

Drain mechanics in general need addressing instead of spending time on new visuals that dont really affect game play - extends being the case in point.

Tyken's Getting you down?

Power Siphon Sucking you dry?

Call Hazard Emitters! It'll wash away all your drains!
You think that your beta test was bad?

I dont know what hit you but I can tell you that even leech + polaron + tykens shouldnt normally do that. Now that is if one person uses polaron, I havent tried a full group assisting someone.
And I think someone tested leech after the latest patch that affected it so I dont think it is responsible, although it does help.

Is Tyken's actually doing anything?

On my RSV, its says that it drains something like 14 power/sec. I thought it still only stacks a total of 2 times, for a total of 28.
