I've only actually tried this on my level 14 powertech that just got ion cylinder, but it deals a very small fraction of the damage stated in the tooltip, so little that there is really no discussion about either the tooltip or the ability being bugged. I'd like to see if this can be confirmed by other powertechs/vanguards.

A good way to test it is making sure ion cell/cylinder is on, putting pet on passive and just hitting the enemy with the basic blaster attack, the yellow numbers is the damage from ion cell/cylinder

What tooltip are you talking about? In game or on the website? I've not played a Vanguard or Powertech but what's the tooltip in game and what kind of damage are you getting with it?

tooltip is 100 and i deal under 30 damage, there is a thread on the general forums discussing it, and most people agree that it is bugged, either the tooltip or the ability: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=94481

If you spec into the "2 sec snare ability"... which procs 50% of the time (with 1 talent point) off of the 15% Ion Cell proc'ing itself on any hit... it hits/snares all the damn time.

Whatever that's worth.
