Let's talk EMP modification

So here is my issue with it.

If you have dexterity mastery active, you will notice the mastery will trigger 2 EMP modification charges:
a) once when you GAIN the cruelty buff from the mastery,
b) when you CONSUME the cruelty buff once you hit the opponent.

Come on, the node says so.

So, the verdict? Coding error? Bug? Bug on the mastery?

    it's not a bug, at least not for the node: when you dex you get a buff that has indefinite duration, and when you hit the opponent that buff is replaced with the one that expires, so you get two buffs from dexterity. i don't remember if this was intentional or if it was a never fixed bug though.

    it does interact with other nodes too: for example, burden of might will drain your power twice ^_^

    Red guardian mate, he's made for the node

    Doom works too since he’s shock immune. Unfortunately the nodes are made to punish us. Not make things fun. 🤷🏽‍♂️

    Wait! Can doom by pass EMP mod?

    Anyone who is shock immune will not gain the shock passives that the node placeson you.

    He’s fully shock immune, so yes, same with thing and korg and probably some that I forgot about

    Terrax amd moleman. You can also use ghost/hood or high sig namor.

    Nebula also

    She only handles the first few shocks

    Thing works also. I used him when I initially explored act 6.1.2 ultron

    Yes it was

    if you were around the original flow wars were it was just morning stars sp2 spam and mystic champs with near maxed out MD

    It use to cause a new buff to be created every single time. So imagine getting power drained every single dexterity you triggered

    Think it doesn't work with Ghost - the node shock is a passive one

    true, but hood can allow you to bypass some of it

    Doom and Thing, are both fully immune to shock effects. therefore no passive shocks inflicted to them.

    but Silver Surfer, Corvus, and some others are only immune to shock DEBUFF, so he won't bypass EMP mod.

    Also, Red Guardian, has the ability to NOT gain any buff. therefore he works too

    Hood allows ghost to not take damage while phasing. If you play right, you can take very little damage from passive damage effects like limbo and the emp mod shocks.

    whoever disagreed clearly doesn't know gladiator hulks abilities

    I wish it was just a buff that expired on hit like a Corvus charge, but they made it like that so it would interact with nodes like that.

    precison not cruelty. But this is how it is intended to work

    Sorry. It's precision not cruelty buff. Got it confused

    Ah, good call. Was reading along the lines of shock debuff immunity and missed out the obvious ghost/hood interaction.

    If it’s intended to be 2 charges then the wording needs to be edited
