# 1 deflector duty officer
12-20-2012, 04:12 AM
the space duty officer that has the chance to cause a cooldown decrease i think is bugged.

it doesnt work on ALL deflector abilities, and it seems to trigger at times for no reason.
heavy graviton beam (maco set)
the vesta deflector beam console




ive had my tachyon beam 3 go onto a global cooldown randomly for no reason and it seems to be the only thing related to it.

i havent been able to replicate it consistantly but if anyone else can look into id be happy.

The purple deflector duty officer has a 25% chance to reduce cooldown on certain deflector abilities (energy siphon, tachyon beam, tyken's rift, gravity well and breen energy dissipator) by 50%. I experimented with it with another fleetmate and did not see any cooldown reduction of energy siphon or tachyon beam.
Has anyone seen this with other abilities, and is it perhaps still bugged.

Your input would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. no tachyon mines were used or are equipped.

Do tachyon mines still trigger this doff?

Not sure about that, but I can confirm Energy Siphon and Tachyon Beam is NOT triggering the boff!

This has been an issue for over a year now since a patch changed up some shared cool downs between sci powers. It has been tested by the devs and they have said everything is working fine however have yet to have it work with siphon or tachyon beam.

Heres a link to a previous discussion with the dev quote aswell as links to a number of simmilar threads about this issue.

Is there any dev in charge of doffs? You post doff related bugs here, nothing done. You post in gameplay bugs, nothing done? Does anyone care about the Doff system!
