You know a broad array of at-will powers, each of which is a conduit through which you can pour as much or as little psionic energy as you choose. You channel psionic energy into a reservoir of personal power—represented in the game as power points —that you can use to augment your at-will attack powers, replacing the encounter attack powers that other characters use.

Because of this class feature, you acquire and use powers in a slightly different manner from how most other classes do. You can instead augment your class at-will attack powers using power points. Average Rating 1 rating New options for ardents, battleminds, monks, and psions.

It provides new builds for the ardent, battlemind, monk, and psion classes, including new character powers, feats, paragon paths, and epic destinies. It was published in August Ending the Powers Books. It includes new builds for the four psionic classes — the ardent, battlemind, monk, and psion — as well as a variety of other options including powers, bloodlines, feats, magic items, paragon paths, and epic destinies.

At the time, it looked like the Powered splatbooks were going strong. In two years, individual books had detailed all five known power sources; there had even been a Martial Power 2 book, suggesting the longevity of the line.

Then in late , everything abruptly changed. Following the August publication of Psionic Power, both the core book series and the Powered series for 4e came to an abrupt end. Psionic powers were now linked to a character class, the psionicist. The powers available to a psionicist were greatly expanded and organized into six disciplines: clairsentience, psychokinesis, psychometabolism, psychoportation, telepathy, and metapsionics. Though psionics had always had a science-fantasy edge to them, that was more obvious than ever thanks to the new detailing of the 2e psionicist.

Psionics got additional attention during the 2e era thanks to Dark Sun , a setting that placed a heavy emphasis on the mental powers. A number of variant psionicist classes were introduced in the later books, including the ardent, the divine mind, the lurk, the psychic warrior, the soulknife, and the wilder — offering more variety for psionics than every before. About the Ardent.

The ardent shares a name with a class that premiered in Complete Psionic James Wyatt described the 4e ardent as the "the psionic warlord". About the Battlemind. The battlemind started out as a totally different class called the "ironjack", which was a fey trickster warrior.

It later became a "psychic warrior", repeating a class name from Expanded Psionics Handbook It finally settled into its place as a battlemind with no fey connections at all.

About the Monk. That changed with the release of 2. The new 4e monk was also a big change from his predecessors because he was based on the psionic power source. About the Psion. The 4e psion also was different from its predecessors in one other way: he had finally shed the science fantasy theming that had surrounded the class since its earliest days.

Psionics were first introduced in Eldritch Wizardry There was no official specific character class that specialized in psionic powers, although an unofficial class, the psionicist, was introduced in Dragon Magazine issue Powers are designated as either sciences major powers or devotions minor powers.

As a psionicist gains experience and advances in level, he acquires more powers; for instance, a 1st-level psionicist has only one science and three devotions, but gets 10 sciences and 25 devotions if he makes it to 20th level. When attempting to use a power, the player makes a Power Check by rolling 1d20 and comparing the result to the Power Score.

There is no real change in the power balance structure here. Heck; even its augments are good. Originally Posted by Dice4Hire.

This page is an overview of Psionics, or psychic powers in general. Psionic abilities are called psionic disciplines, since each one consists of rigid mental exercises needed to place a creature in the correct mindset to wield psionic power. I do like the feats though, I see them as a good way of unlocking psionic power in the different classes. The only drawback however, is that their psionic defense is limited to only protecting them from projectile weapons. Only information in a power later in the power chain that is different from the base power is covered in the power being described.
