Dumb Question about CONFUSE + DE Emanators

If a Devouring Earth Emanator is CONFUSED does it buff the player's team
with whatever effects it emits?
Ergo, CONFUSE the Devouring Earth "Tree of Life" Healing plant and
instead of healing the immediate Devouring Earth in the healing aura, it
instead heals the team attacking the Devouring Earth.

Haven't actually tried this as I only have one low-level Mind Controller
character.

Depends on how it's coded but the smart money says "no".

Confused oppoonents don't seem to see new freinds only see old freinds as
foes.

In favor of this theory, I have never been healed by a confused sorcerer,
nor seen any other player be healed by them. And I've spent some time
with sorcerers.

Yes and no. I have a 42 Illusion and have been playing with Deceive
since Embalmed Cadavers, which are one of the best ever uses for that
power. Confuse will reverse the 'alignment' of a villan, but not a
pet/summons. However if the villan is Confused before it performs the
summoning then the pet/summons is Confused.

It is tricky but extremely demonstrable on Rikti Communications
Officers, if you Confuse them before they open a portal then all the
Rikti that come through the portal are confused. Others this works with
are Sky Raider Engineers, DE that drop emitters, BP Death Shamen, Master
Illusionists, Malta Engineers, and Clockwork Assemblers. In all cases
the target must be under the influence of your power before it goes into
the animation for the cast/summon/build whatever.

I don't know if this will work on Mortificator revivification, but it is
a possibility. If the Mort is Confused when it stops to revive a cadaver
then the cadaver might be Confused as well. But the ones in the above
paragraph I'm sure of.

Does a Sky Raider force bubble generator count as a pet? As you can
definitely hit the generator with a confuse effect *after* its
already out and gain its benefits.

You need to nail the Raider Engineer before he sets up the FF, after
dosen't seem to work. Mind too that I passed the Raiders a long time ago
and something might have changed. But it'll be pretty easy to test,
everything under the FF has an individual bubble of it's own similar to
the standard FF deflection shield graphic, so you just watch who gets that.
