How does the (up to 33%) damage bonus work? Like a tac console or like an attack pattern?
12th Fleet Are recruiting Active PvP'ers.
We have Full T5 starbase, Teamspeak and over 200 active members.

Go to Recruitment room and beam up! You'll be glad you did.

I believe it works off of base damage.

... when it works, that is. T4 Rom rep passive kinda kills it.

Seriously, go through and look at how many things have next to zero use for PvE but make PvP that much worse, eh?

It is painful trying to search for an answer on it...heck, even what it affects often results in conflicting answers, meh.

Probably one of those things where you'd need to grab a friend and do some low damage simple/unbuffed attacks and manually parse the combatlog using the relevant formulas to see whether it was applied before or after weapon power.

I think i tested it during season 5? And its was a flat 33% increase to your final damage (ie you hit for 1000 damage, with max SA it was 1333 damage). But that was what 8 months ago?
