Hey all, I've been trying a damage reflection build and it seems to me that the reflected damage attack doesn't seem to trigger any "On hit" buffs you may have going, and it also doesn't seem like it is able to critically strike. I think this really hinders its ability to be viable on higher level missions.
Interestingly enough, it seems the deflector shield, which is essentially the same thing, IS capable of triggering on hit effects / critting, so only the basic reflect attacks (ones that occur from the Reflect Chance stat) cannot trigger effects / crit.
Is there any chance the basic reflect attacks could be changed to mimic the deflector shield attacks?
Edit: With further testing, I've have a theory on this - perhaps the reflect attacks aren't "owned / belong" by the player. I have certain effects on my character that buff the next outgoing attack on X instance (+damage after reflect, +crit chance after being hit), and the reflect attacks don't seem to use these stored effects (the bonus stays on my bar until I do an attack myself).
Here's a short video to show the lack of crits on basic reflects:
Also, here's a video of the deflector shield doing some crits:
