So I have been trying to test to see if I can have Maelstorm do a significantly high amount of suppression damage to quickly drain elites. Theoretically, it does 2x suppression damage, I have the skill to get 50% more from armor piercing attacks and I have the rune that gives 50% more suppression damage. So this means that if I have an autopistol with a dps of 220 and Maelstorm is 220 dps the Maelstorm should drain suppression at at least 50% - %100 faster rate than the auto pistol. If nothing else then I should see Maelstorm remove suppression faster than health. In my testing I haven't found this to be true....
1. The autopistol drains suppression faster than Maelstorm.
2. The enemy dies before their suppression is drained when suppression is equal to health.
Can someone help shed some light on this and explain how suppression damage is supposed to work and if I missing something crucial here? Should I just give up on trying to drain suppression using the only psyker skill that boasts 2x suppression?
