    So inconclusion some members discovered a way to use the games functions to gain top rewards in a way PA,Kabam didn't foresee. Changes happen, when they are announced in advance, and a clear explanation that is honest, some people will complain, myself included sometimes, but if there is a competitive disadvantage that was not intended then I can see why they would act.

    Now with that being said, I have a mini that is approaching 6k energy and 3k stamina and he's sitting on over 200 refills. When it's ready it's going to grab a top spot.
    Ahh makes sense. Guess I must have missed the explanation. My mistake on that one.

    I use Shiek in my defender load out because I try for as much deflect/dodge as possible. However, I think he could be easily switched out, as there are far better options.
    I agree Shiek has very low deflect potential, but for me, I have no other to replace him with.
    Violence has much higher potential

    Re: [Answered] Please help us clarify these following game mystery

    So same goes for the sheik as a deflector?? 2% chance with 4 9* LTs around a 1* rare seems to make your 5 LT load a lot weaker... and a 2% aka 1 in 50 tokens coming your way doesn't seem like much bonus at all...

    Also a new note can we expect to see a Jobs based Teir 2 Bonus XP LT anytime soon??

Thanks for any help in confirming or understanding further
    Pretty sure it stays the same way. It keeps the high standard of stars, because she is getting that much stronger.
    Its supposed to be difficult to reach her max potential, because her max potential is so high.

    Just my point of view.

    Said "brings 80+% damage BONUS" not all damage. Guess there's base damage like 100, and bonus damage depends on your stats, lts, insignias, etc. And of course 11700 def better than your 2000 attack :'D

    And i join the question about enforcer class in fps bosses: its complete uselessness in fps boss hunting and aa12 shotgun, which seems even more useless, than enf at all.

    2. Base attack contributes to 80% or higher to the damage bonus in the formula.
    3. Base defense contributes to 80% or higher to the damage mitigation bonus in the formula.
    well i had this case before where my account with 2k attack stat 0 defense stat would do more damage on normal hit than my empire mate with 11700 defense stat and 0 attack on the same target .
    but i guess the fact that attack power contribution to the base damage is low , must prove my case .thanks

    Since you've been fixing a lot of skill descriptions.......is it possible to fix or reword the description on booby trap for heavy weapon class?

    At lvl 3 it says 5% attack strength as damage. Is this true? Or is it lower?

    That warlog is not very useful, but technically you do get a little bit damage bonus from the attack power, so can't say it's all wrong.

    I updated the "attack power" for the 4 base class first passive skill because it has been adding attack power all along, saying "attack" is not accurate.

    Re: [Answered] Please help us clarify these following game mystery

    @Duke : A couple more questions If you have time to answer for me :

    1. Again, It is the Chameleon LT, It he imitates a LT that has their power (no clone) , would they stack together with the original LT, or some part, or not at all. Example LT : Whiplash, Overkill.

    2.Hotwire Proc chance , I know this has been answered many times by you and other old devs, the % chance is the same and would multiply with the stamina spent, but I feel like her proc chance procs more that that 1% chance ( I have been testing a lot and it falls between 3-4% based on a large samples of single token hits).

    Duke: Hotwire will try to roll 80 times if you do a 80 stamina hit. Not roll once and x stamina cost.

    3. Enforcer class in FPS Boss. Well, Enforcer used to absorb and aggro more damage with the original boss, but with the recent FPS Boss, their damage is low , and even If you hit an assassin boss ( counter class ), you would still obtain less damage/points per stamina compare to sniper class hitting sniper/assassin/enforcer boss. Should there be a fix to compensate Enforcer class? Being Enforcer, most players tend to have high defense, which leads to already low damage output on bosses.

    Duke: Aggro maybe just not designed for FPS boss. I don't know. Agreed enforcer do bad damage on fps bosses. It's not only about the aggro, also the skill and the overall game balance on boss is simply off. Might tweak it when we get there.
