Sith raid - Traya's Bonds of weakness

First:
Can I get an explanation to the Attack vs Ability? Bonds of weakness are supposedly gained when toon is using any ability. Now, by going to any character details screen, it shows attacks & abilities list on the left. By tapping the most basic attack available every turn, we can see details of the attack, but it says ability level bonus. This is the same for every toon and every attack. So how do we distinguish an attack from an ability?

Second:
In the new sith raid, in P3 or P4, traya can use isolate on a toon. This removes any synergy between the toon and the team until it lasts. When the isolated toon does basic attack, Traya still gains Bonds of weakness.
So depending on the answer to the first issue posted, it looks like a bug, and she shouldn't be gaining bow, or it's a typo in the raid description, as it should say "Any Attack or Ability use".

Third:
Raid description says in P4 details that the isolate can be removed by stand alone, but there's no stand alone in p4, there's only remove isolate from an ally.

    So, nobody knows what the hell is going on? Is this just another bug from CG that will be ignored because it makes the raid harder?!

    Any time you press a button you are using an ability. The basic is still an ability.

    When you press on any of the abilities in the character screen the title above the levels is "Ability level bonus".

    It seems pretty clear. So nothing to ignore.

    This is why I jump into P3 and then refuse to do anything. You should see the look on Traya's face.

    No, it's not clear! The list on the char screen clearly states "attack & abilities" which means there's distinction between the two, and I want clarification on which ones are attack and which ones are abilities.
    If it was all the same, then why not just say that Traya gains BOW with every attack?

    Because some abilities are not attacks I.e. Heals

    Yeah, but they still generate B.O.W. for Traya, so again, it's not clear. If that was the case, tge raid desc should include "use of any attacks and abilities", and actually it the should say every character action.

    Yes it is clear. Every time you take a turn it increases. I'm not sure why this is confusing to you.

  • In addition to what tvf said: Using an ability can add multiple stacks if this ability consists of multiple attacks, e.g. leias or han solos basic.

    It is clear, all abilities are abilities(heals, buffs) and all attacks are abilities, but not all abilities are attacks. If its easier think of it as every action will trigger BOW. If you buff it triggers, if you basic attack it triggers, if you special attack it triggers, if you attack with someone who does multiple attacks(han solo basic double tap) it triggers for each attack.
    You are being pretty obtuse about the wording which is correct as it is so Im not sure what your beef is here.
    All actions are abilities.
