From some testing and discussion, it appears Siphoning Attacks no longer procs from bashing (block+light attack) either on the PTS or Live server
. For a bit of background, prior to the IC update, bashing had apparently counted as a direct damage attack that had a chance to proc the larger, non-basic attack
stat return component of SA. Personally, I never tried or paid attention to it because I always assumed bashing didn't count as a "direct damage" attack per se. However, other NB tanks had relied on it to help manage resources by trying to get SA to proc by as many means as possible, especially with the help of bash cost reduction bonuses.
So, what experiences and insights do my fellow NBs have with this method of proccing SA?
ZOS, was this intentionally changed in the past?
