Talk:Psyche Warrior (5e Class)

Requested review:

  • You need a feature to explain psion points, like how monk's ki is detailed.
  • Telepathic link has no range.
  • Psion blast has no trigger action or range.
  • Personality warp has no trigger action or range.
  • Inflict... is this just another damage thing? Why is it called pain and not damage? What damage type? What does "This attack ignores damage" mean?
  • Idea Implant has nearly no mechanical benefit if it isn't something of harm or killing. It needs better wording, and even then it isn't any better than something like phantasmal force
  • Spells should be italicized.
  • Mind swap is overpowered at endgame due to being able to control close to a CR20, which is more than any other official content control ability. It also does not allow for a save. You also do not specify how to end the effect (action? bonus action?).
  • Power boost should have a maximum on how much you can raise someone's attack... and also, it should specify attack roll if that is the intention, or damage if that is the intention.
  • Constructs are not objects; they are creatures. Psion constructs therefore makes no sense with the keywords. If anything, it should be worded more appropriately like conjure object
  • Knockout should require a save that can be repeated on each of their turns. Otherwise it is just outright overpowered. I can knock any bosses unconscious without letting them resist! And I can knock out over 10 of them no problem endgame.
  • I find the point cost for a 7th level spell like plane shift to be a bit low, considering that a fullcaster can only cast a 7th level spell twice at level 20. You can cast this spell 8 times with 40 psion points.
  • If you're making blades to hold with the Psychic blade feature, you should need free hands. If not, then they might be like projectiles like magic missile or weapons that float like spiritual weapon, and should be worded as such.
  • Skilled Killer should specify if it is a weapon attack, unarmed, etc.
  • In general, you should link inpage features so it's easier to tell.

This was as far as I got on a skim.--Yanied (talk) 12:12, 10 February 2020 (MST)

Ok, I think I addressed all of your issues, if you find any more let me know and I still don't know what you mean by trigger action. --Flamestarter (talk) 20:09, 10 February 2020 (MST)
5e SRD:Mind Blank as a 2nd level feature seems pretty good. Might wanna address that. Red Leg Leo (talk) 22:26, 11 February 2020 (MST)
Did it, Leo! I think I did good, what do you think? --Flamestarter (talk) 11:42, 12 February 2020 (MST)
Sorry, my fault. I meant I think the feature was too good, and has become better with the ability to extend to others. I think it'd be more appropriate to use a point to re-roll a saving throw for said effects. I think resistance would be better than immunity for a 2nd level feature, that could improve via features later or specific sub-class feature. Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:49, 12 February 2020 (MST)
Sorry I didn't get back to this. I say "trigger" probably too vaguely that people would mistake it for 4e. It just means I need to know how to activate said ability. By action, reaction, bonus, etc, etc. Like how do I link myself telepathically in Telepathic Link? Do I just do it without knowing the action? The ones missing this are telepathic link, psion blast, psion constructs, as far as I see on a skim.--Yanied (talk) 13:39, 12 February 2020 (MST)
Ah, thank you for telling me that! I completely missed that. Well, it's fixed now. --Flamestarter (talk) 14:25, 12 February 2020 (MST)
