Saw and tested whether it was a cheat earlier today on a server.

A dude had SOMETHING that turned on absorb instantly. No matter what you used against him, absorb would come on as soon as you casted it. I thought that there would be some sort of lag time, but no matter where you tried to use it from, above, behind, when he was busy, whatever, absorb would come on then turn right off.

Im 95% sure it was some sort of script or modified client, but don't know. Anyone else seen this?

It was NOT a manual turn on of absorb.

perhaps its because you can only see absorb when you use force powers against your oponent.. otherwise it is hidden..

dunno.. i never invest points in absorb anymore..

hmm, was the fact that he suddenly turned blue everytime you used a force power on him what gave him away? :rolleyes:

(Hint: Read the changes to the 1.03 patch)

Wait now, lets don't jump down his throat just yet.

Which version were you playing, the patched, or non patched?

The patched version allows lighties to use Absorb *gasp* in secret! If someone pulls/pushes/grips/lightinings/drains someone with absorb on, you'll know after the fact.
