Zealot Toughness Regeneration Delay

My friend plays zealot a lot and for some time had been complaining about his toughness regeneration, namely that outside of combat and in coherency it simply wasn’t regenerating. Today he found that when he got rid of his +15% Toughness Regeneration curio he was not regenerating his toughness immediately upon entering coherency. He decided to test this a few times with the same curio and with a +20% toughness Regeneration curio, with the same results.

It seems that the regeneration speed is the same, regardless, but with the curios on there is a massively long delay before toughness regenerates in coherency. We’ve never seen anything about it anywhere, so our only guess is it’s an interaction with the Faith Restored feat, which is what he typically uses.

The curios he tested with:

And his feats:

An example of him simply not regenerating any toughness, in Power Matrix HL-17-36, just after the data interregator sequence. He had 105 toughness, and I chased him to keep him in coherency from the door to the other end.

To summarize:
It seems that at least with a 212221 feat set up Toughness Regeneration curios cause a large delay before toughness begins to regenerate from coherency.

Woudn’t be surprised, there are probably tons of hidden bugs that people just haven’t noticed since there are so many interactions.

I’m adding this to the list of things to watch for

Thank you for your report! Could you give me your friend’s steam id / gamertag? Do you guys play on Steam or Microsoft Store? Could you give me the console log corresponding to any session where this happened? So any session where they were using these curios/feats I guess.

Upload Console Log:

His name is Brofisticus, we’re on the Steam version.

We just did two sessions to get the logs, the first one here is with toughness regeneration curios on.

And a second log without the toughness regeneration trinkets.

Would hate to piggie back on it, but another bug was documented for this as well, namely the game incorrectly saying that he is in coherency. We can’t seem to find any rhyme or reason for why the display is incorrectly saying he is at 3 coherency, but the game does seem to sometimes update to the correct amount when reentering the real coherency aura.

Both of these screenshots were taken from the same game as the first log, with the Toughness Regeneration curios.

Beyond simply having the curios on, we can’t find another way to repeat the problem.

I run into this stuff a lot on my ogryn and I think i’ve narrowed it down to frame pacing/server ticks. Like on my power maul if I’m running certain settings, I won’t regenerate toughness at all using raging bull but it’s fine on other settings.

If you’re on nvidia hardware, try turning framerate in game to “unlimited” and using nvidia profile inspector (or the control panel, but unsure if that does the same thing) to your monitor’s refresh rate.

hope this helps 8)
