So I’m going to boost this here in a new thread to try and get some attention on it:
And as an update: We have confirmed this with Miko as well. The damage buff only applies to the Miko and only when he heals actual health damage. Haven’t tested Kid Ultra yet, but if enough people want to know I will. Odds aren’t good though guys considering the gear doesn’t work on anyone else.
For those who don’t want to click the link: Solar Sustainer is broken, as in it doesn’t work/do what it says it does. Using it does not buff your allies attack damage for any healer.
Edit: Also going to add some of this @Jythri and a bit of this @JoeKGBX to see what we can stir up on their end, maybe a pinch of @gRANT_ will spice things up.
Read the link, it goes into a lot more detail. Healing is simply an effect that is applied, a HoT exists even if you do not need it to. And the effect doesn’t work the same with every character, Alani being the special snowflake here with her heals not needing to be healing damage for it to ‘proc’ as much as it does. Even then: my main point still stands that the piece is still broken and under no circumstances gives the boost to your allies.
Sorry, I misunderstood. I didn’t realize it didn’t boost their damage no matter what, I just thought you had to be healing depleted health for it to apply. Time to take it off KU, thanks for investigating java.
I was wondering if Solar Sustainer worked with Kid Ultra’s support Drones, because I’ve had it heal teammates who have lost health but noticed no increase to my damage. It’s not them getting the damage buff as much as I want it for better healing. But if it doesn’t work even with other characters that well, then maybe I should stop using it.
This is a mega necrobump but just wanted to add that this should work on Toby, making it possible to achieve a total of +34.58 attack damage natively with gear alone, which is pretty insane on his charged shots. Imo it ironically makes him the character best suited to use it.
Hmm, yeah I think I can. Give me a day to figure out how I want to test it and then find someone to sucker into wasting time with me. I know the Oath shows up on the recap healing done, so in theory it would trigger the Sustainer. Would be one heck of a synergy for a damage dealer. Run those two and a symbiotic when you know you will have a silly amount of shards and just chuckle with glee as things die.
