PVP - Ill/Rad Recharge Bonus on Phantom Army

Ura Hero

Recommended Posts

Went off to work on some Badges in Recluse's Victory today.   My Phantom Army isn't being affected by my recharge bonus like I think it should.  Probably just my misunderstanding, but since I don't know for sure, here we are.


235% Recharge bonus.   In PVE, Phantom Army recharges right at the time it is expiring.   In PvP it expires with 26 seconds left before the power is recharged.  So what gives?

This is not a bug - this is PvP diminishing returns at work. The ingame combat attributes window does not accurately show the effects of diminishing returns for some attributes, recharge included. Your 235% global recharge is actually closer to 156% in PvP and therefore PA - which would recharge in about 58 seconds in PvE - will recharge in 84 seconds. You'd need to have about 500% global recharge before factoring in diminishing returns in order to keep perma PA.
