Item Database - Theft Humidity

Theft Humidity During a meeting with Mehar Izgimmer, the top-ranked trader Tanius Corbinson probed a bit too deeply into the inner workings of humidity extraction. This caused strife between the two, as Izgimmer felt he had been generous enough in aiding the young woman's research into defensive nanotechnology, and the two stopped speaking shortly thereafter. Though the origins of this nano are unclear, many believe it has its roots within that dispute.
Utilizing the latest in "TheftBot" technology, this nano harshly rips away the target's natural nanobot regeneration, redirecting it to the trader. Though this will work on anyone, Tanius made sure to make it extra-effective against Nanotechnicians. Just as a special "thank you" to Izgimmer.

not really as OP'd as it looks
Threeze @ 2009-03-11 00:31
yes it is... it looks like 2 minute recharge and only lasts 3 seconds, but if you use a crit-reliant AS weapon, it's a +100% crit chance buff for you, which can deal some decent damage in those 3 seconds by landing a nasty AS.

it could be more OP'd yeah, but considering you can use it at super low levels its not something you can really complain about either.
Xyphos @ 2009-03-11 19:55
almost useless imo.
duration is too short to even bother using.
Bluetavius @ 2009-03-17 19:01
useless in pvp? yes, since the crit chance is halved so its only +50%, and it would make someones weapon OE 0% for 2 hits at the most since its 1/1s maxed
not so much in pvm since you fire this then fire your alpha doing a crit with each spec - I can do 8-12k damage in three seconds with my silverback 4, probably more once I get it to mk 6
Darketernal @ 2009-03-25 14:42
It's not useless in pvp bluetavis, yeah its 50% crit chance in pvp... but u should have more crit buffing stuff anyway so good for alpha, and good for starting off a fight since usually ppl dump all dd on a trader at the start of a fight since if u dont kill the trader after ~ 15 sec, you're screwed anyway. I agree its not needed tho since traders are a pain already :P
Comi @ 2009-04-10 03:36
You can use it at super low levels, but 1000 nanocost makes it useless.
Towertrasher @ 2009-04-12 21:32
at lvl 15 you can get the nanopool to use it, but it would only be worth it if it was 100% crit in pvp.. the best use is what Darketernal said, first nano in a duel, makes ppl's alphas useless, and gives you the chance to get off a nice AS at the same time,
L_dunk586 @ 2009-05-18 09:29
traders that I've seen use this cast it right away, get away from the alpha attempt and then drain. who cares if they are out of nano, most traders I know enjoy sucking their opponents nano while they flail around (drained)
L_dunk586 @ 2009-05-18 09:35
^so now that small amount of time we once had to kill traders before we get drained, is now much smaller. fantastic............
Vampirefix @ 2009-06-16 00:31
Level 15 usable for sure, it would be a last resort use, considering all your nano would drain out.
Mastaoflimbo @ 2009-07-16 11:00
I used this on a agent just befor he Aimed shot he was not happy

Thanks for letting us know, please keep us updated.
Dollcet @ 2009-08-28 09:25
Pretty short duration but still cool , my trader uses a FSS with a Home Defender , often produces 2 crits while running this , awesome short boost to the dmg :-)
Gonna get me some weird weapons and test which Specials are Affectted by the 100% critical Increase
Vxrniss @ 2009-08-29 05:04
All specials except Burst crit.

And Aimed shot in most cases because landing a special on a mob makes them aware of your presence. You will need to fire SDS on 1 mob hide and AS the other if you wish to use it at all.

>.> lesser industrial sabatage + this = win..
Rimortech @ 2010-01-26 19:45
Where can i find it?
Deadlykis @ 2010-01-28 20:21
Rim try tower shop " Ofab Nanos and Devices "
kilafiremage @ 2010-03-13 00:08
uber in pvp for a level 15 trader in a crit setup, gonna use it on mine... kill opponents alpha and see those crits fly
Esproc @ 2010-03-30 07:06
You can meet the nanopool requirement at level 5 self buffed if you aggressively put nanocost and nano/nanopool in the setup.

Not even an expensive build at that aside from if you use a pump master or something.
And all froob gear at that.
zerogates @ 2010-05-18 04:09
I can almost reach the nanocost for this on my level 1 selfed. Maybe if I used %cost NCU's I could reach enough.
Vigos @ 2010-12-30 05:08
One weapon comes to mind... Krutt Assault 219 Waltzing Queen Special.

Cast this then get of a shot then fling shot right after!!! And if you have high enough init you can get off another crit before the 3 sec are up :D
Briandmg @ 2016-01-24 18:22
Sooo what is the current state of this nano? I know it has been converted to some GTH nano, but is it still possible to buy the modified (new) version of Shutdown Skills from the OFAB store still?
