Pro?s: 39th Wizard, 35th Psion, High SR (race), decent caster hp (440), high buffed AC, saves, hp & AB, epic spells, 1950 hp Epic Warding, ~60+ psi powers, 3 racial True Strikes, decent Psi-healing powers, Deep Impact for uber (monk) AC?s, ~388 skill points, no smites, good chance to debuff opponents, low chance for opp?s to debuff, Lower Spell Resistance (Fort) DC 63 (69 max Int).

Cons: d4?s, 2 attack / round (un-hasted), psi-focus (bogus!) mechanic (f-off, WotC!), fast Psi pp burn down @ max augment, manual psi-focus (bogus!) required for some meta-psi?s to work (twin Ecto-Shambler), quickslot shortage.

Attack stack: BAB +20, Str +5 (+11 Max Str), Off. Precog +12, Mantle of Egr. Might +4, Gr. Heroism +4 = +45 (+51 Max Str)

Deadeye Sense: +20
65 (45 + 20), 71 (Max Str)

True Strike: +20
85 (65 + 20), 91 (Max Str)

Misc: Masochism + X, enhancements +Y

AC stack (max buff, no items): 10 (Base) + 9 Natural Armor, +2 Armor Skin, +4 Tumble + 4 Dex (+10 Max), + 21 Inertial Armor (Armor), +12 Force Screen (Shield), +12 Def Precognition (Insight) +10 Imp Expertise = 84 (90 Max Dex)

Damage Stack: +5 Str (+11 max), +13 Off. Prescience, +Y enhancements = 18 (24 Max Str)

Skills: Conc: 43, Disc: 21, Lore: 43, S-Craft: 43, Tumble: 21, +175 your choices

Notes:

1) Twinned Ecto-Shambler (34 hp / round when twinned - no SR, no save, no attack rolls, magical damage) on non-DR classes / opp?s is a great fire and forget power. You have to manually Psi-focus (bogus!)  (Ahem, f-off, WotC geniuses!) to twin the Shambler.

2) Energy Current (Kineticist only) ? max augment & meta-psi then make sure no one ?punks? you into attacking (breaks power). Does ~ 165 ? 330 hp / round (Cold Fort half, all others [fire, sonic, et. al.] Flex half) concentrating ? no pp drain. Do not use on high SR races unless Lower Spell Resistance is used first.

3) Energy Missile (Kineticist only) DC save is NOT a misprint, DC = 10 + 2 (base power level) + 1 / pp + ability mod. Max augment save ~ 50+ DC (Cold Fort half, all others [fire, sonic, et. al.] Flex half) for five twinned, max & empowered missiles. Cannot target same opp twice (arg!). Do not use on high SR races unless Lower Spell Resistance is used first.

4) If you don?t like a power choice (i.e. Mental Barrier = WotC trash!), use Psychic Reformation.

5) Psi-Meditation (aka Psi Medi-Wasting) was intentionally not taken (BS 3.5 mechanic).

6) Race was chosen over Illithid due to better natural AC, Con and Str bonuses.

Enjoy.
That is not dead which can eternal lie.

Divine Mind Mage “The War-head”

“The ‘War-head’ clan was named for their ‘destroy everything’ mentality. The ‘War-heads’ simultaneously commanded all manner of lingering destruction across the battlefield; torrents of dissolving ectoplasm, insect legions, swift retribution, virulent plague winds, caustic rain, sub-arctic currents and multiple death strikes. The aftermath of their presence would come to rival that of Tolodine.”
– Zha-kha-xi-khan, Supremacy War historian

Zakya Rakshasa, True Neutral, CL 7 (Plant, War) / Psion 5 / Psy Theurge 28

Pro’s: 39th Cleric, 33rd Psion, High SR (race), decent caster hp (468), high buffed saves, hp & AB, medium-high Dev Crit DC 38 (44 Max Str), 8 attacks / round max buff [3 pri + 1 haste + 1 Div power + 3 sec], 6 attacks / round unhasted (3 pri + 3 sec) + potential TW-Rend, Creeping Doom (Base, Extended), Ecto-Shambler (1 Twin + Extended Shambler = 32 hp / round for 66 minutes), Energy Current (Max + Empowered Cold = 135 – 270 hp / round), 1-33 hp / strike retribution damage, Energy Retort (only after Lower SR spell) 42 damage Max + Empowered, epic spells, 1950 hp Epic Warding, strong healing powers & spells, good chance to debuff opponents, low chance for opp’s to debuff spells + powers (L39 Caster, L33 manifester + Dispelling Buffer), Lower Spell Resistance (Fort) DC 58 (64 max Wis), ~ 60+  psi powers, 3 racial True Strikes, 275 skill points, no smites.

Cons: MAD, d4’s, low unbuffed AB, medicocre buffed AC, medium-low damage per strike, psi-focus (bogus!) mechanic (f-off, WotC!), off-hand Str nerf (WotC geniuses!), fast Psi pp burn down @ max augment, manual psi-focus (bogus!) required for some meta-psi’s to work (twin Ecto-Shambler), quickslot shortage.

Skills: Conc: 43, Disc: 21, Lore: 43, S-Craft: 43, Tumble: 21, +62 your choices

Notes:

1) Twinned Ecto-Shambler (32 hp / round when twinned, 66 minutes when extended- no SR, no save, no attack rolls, magical damage) on non-DR classes / opp’s is a great fire and forget power. You have to manually Psi-focus (bogus!)  (Ahem, f-off, WotC geniuses!) to twin the Shambler.

2) Creeping Doom – no SR, no save, no attack rolls, magical damage, 1000 hp cap. Taken at 7th and Extended at 8th.

3) Shadow Body psi-power – (immune to crits, sneaks, ability dam, etc., 50% conceal, half elemental damage) great to fire Shamblers and Creeping Dooms from far away, then phase back out the next round.

4) Energy Current (Kineticist only) – max augment then make sure no one “punks” you into attacking (breaks power). Max + Empowered does ~ 135 – 270 hp / round cold damage (Cold Fort half, all others [fire, sonic, et. al.] Flex half) concentrating – no pp drain. Do not use on high SR races unless Lower Spell Resistance is used first.

5) Energy Missile (Kineticist only) DC save is NOT a misprint, DC = 10 + 2 (base power level) + 1 / pp + ability mod. Max augment save ~ 50+ DC (Cold Fort half, all others [fire, sonic, et. al.] Flex half) for five twinned + max missiles. Cannot target same opp twice (arg!). Do not use on high SR races unless Lower Spell Resistance is used first.

6) If you want a much higher AC: choose Egoist (Thicken Skin = +11 Nat AC), trade out 2 feats for Expertise (+5) and Imp Expertise (+10).

7) Choose the Retribution domain if you want a “hit me” caster – add Elemental Shield d6+39 damage / strike to go with Empathic Feedback (1-33 / strike) and Energy Retort.

8) If you don’t like a power choice (i.e. Mental Barrier = WotC trash!), use Psychic Reformation.

9) Psi-Meditation (aka Psi Medi-Wasting) was intentionally not taken (BS 3.5 mechanic).

10) Race was chosen over Illithid due to better natural AC, Con and Str bonuses.

What's the Psionic Focus mitigation you're talking about in your builds?
Ideas are bulletproof.

PRC Leto-ed Epic Psi-Focus (Bogus?) X & Psi-Meditation (Medi-Wasting) feats.

You have to manually hit Psi-Medi-Wasting to make sure all Meta-Psi's are applied. Annoying as sh_t.

Anyone else have a "Mother, may I" before casting? WotC genius.

Yeah, well, I play a psion... Actually being able to apply multiple metapsionics is an advantage over magic classes, as in nwn they can only ever add one. I think epic psionic focus is actually a fair feat. Though pre-epic psionic focus kinda sucks.

Does psionic meditation actually allow you to focus and manifest in one round? Because  in pnp if you focus as a move action you still have a standard action to manifest.

IIRC, Psi-Medi-Wasting granted "Mother, May I" permission-to-manifest in the same round.

So I just tried and you cannot - at least on my computer. Gaining psionic focus is much faster, but you still cannot do anything but run in that round - no attacking, no casting.

Focus, Fire, Focus, Fire. After your last power, focus again. Annoying as _ _ _ _ yet?  ???


RE: Psionic types. PP burndown is a huge issue, so . .

Two of the best pp economical damage / pp ratio powers are:
Twinned, Extended Ecto Shamber (No SR, No Save, Magic dam) - huge duration, huge damage. Only high DR beats it.
Emp, Max, Extended Energy Current (SR, Cold is Fort save and +1 dam) - you have to concentrate, so AC boost is a must.

The Twinned Shambler does your manifester level in damage each round * 2 min (Extended) / man level. If you have a Psy-Theurge that casts Extended Creep Doom & Twinned, Ext Shamblers, a half dozen of each at the same time melts darn near anything.
