Incarnate Interface - What is a damaging attack?

The Interface Slot Abilities grant a chance of effect to most of your damaging attacks.

What is a damaging attack? (I'm specifically considering my Ill/Kin Troller when I ask most questions)

 

  1. Is Phantasm a damaging attack?
  2. Is Phantom Army a damaging attack?
  3. Is Spectral Terror with "Glimpse of the Abyss - Chance for Damage" a damaging attack when it procs?
  4. Is Fulcrum Shift? (It does no damage, but requires a "to hit"; never sure what other people intend when they write things)

 

Thanks

As it's worded, I'd have to answer:

 

1. No, it's a pet.

2. Is also a pet.

3. No, the proc isn't the power damaging, it's the set doing a chance for damage.

4. No, or at least it shouldn't be. As you mention, it does no damage - never mentions anything about to hit.

 

Those are, of course, how I'm reading it. Though you can always check on the test server, it should show up in the combat logs.

 

For an ill/kin, I'd think you'd mostly have it triggering on Spectral Wounds and the hold, plus whatever pool attacks you might have. Again, going by that wording.

I'm actually fairly certain interface does proc on pet attacks.  I'll jump on one of my illusion controllers in a bit and test it out.

I saw someone mention it working on MM Thug powers, but I’ve always felt MM pets (even Gang War) to be more like attack powers than pets.

Yes, yes, no, no.  The conditional refers to powers which natively deal damage with no enhancements slotted.  That includes pets, pseudo-pets and henches.

ok, just confirmed, on both Phantom Army and Phantasm, interface will in fact proc.


Thank you both. Makes sense.

Thanks for the info.  I would have assumed pets were a no.  Pseudo pets are odd but would almost have to be coded for because of Ice and such.  Otherwise Ice Blasters would be even more F-ed than they were to begin with

Are you saying that because you feel that way you should get the benefit as if it were?

I went to Ouroboros all i got was this lousy secret!

No.  Just pointing out some possible interaction.   Trying to figure out how things work. Nothing more.

I'd have untuited the same, but then again, if you play a pet heavy character and don't get a benefit from that, then it's a bit gimped. So in-depth analysis suggests pets should be part of its conditional trigger as indeed they seem to be. Otherwise you'd reduced by 5 attacks on your primary as an MM

The Ghost Slaying Axe. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherspectre in the room, accept no substitutes.

People play MMs?   😳

I'm actually surprised by how many didn't seem to know pet attacks benefited.  Don't really even need to dig into combat logs as the most common interface choices have pretty obvious graphic effects on enemies when they trigger.   But I guess you have to actually play a pet class (and probably solo at that), to notice and know for sure it is the pet doing it.
