Complete Arcane, 03/16/ Complete Champion Complete Scoundrel, 09/ 24/ Complete 02/16/ Expanded Psionics Handbook, 02/16/ I remember the old forum had a thread for Ultimate Psionics Errata I Does the errata for psionics expanded apply to Ultimate Psioincs?. I haven’t seen official errata yet on complete psionic – and I’m missing something. In the original version of astra construct – I didn’t see anything.

Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I’m right now paging through psuonic Complete Psionic. I have heard a lot of baaaaad things about this book, but I must say all three base classes it presents look interesting, playable, and fairly balanced as classes go I haven’t gotten very far, so I won’t comment on the other chapters right now.
I know the ‘illithid heritage’ feats are weeeeeird stuff they imply your great-great grandfather was a mindflayer, and that doesn’t fit with the Illithid reproductive cycleand that the Astral Construct errtaa isn’t really popular because it wasn’t neededbut what is is about this book that people don’t like?
Also, what parts are good because it can’t be so awful there’s not a single useful thing in it? There may have been threads like this before, but my first search didn’t come up with anything relevant and there’s the annoying 5 minute delay on searches, so I just posted this.
Throw me a link to a similar thread if you know one.

The Divine Mind is obviously the worst offender, as at that point you’re not even a psionic character any more And, nearly all of the Prestige Classes are useless.
I think it’s a consensus that the Lurk was one of the few good things to come out of the book. Please, think of the Fighters. Another funny thing is that it’s easier to enter Anarchic Initiate as a Psion than a wilder.

And that genetic coding remains from generation to generation, so it really only had to happen once, ever, and that DNA is hidden away for the right PC to take the feats to activate it Man this thing was full of outdated stuff. Swoop Falcon I make made? Originally Posted by Compplete.

Also, it was trying to step into the Complete line, somewhere that it had no buisness being. The Stormlord doesn’t have any psionic-related fluff in it. I really like the Ardent. Clerics should be more like that IMHO. The editing is really poor. The Practiced Manifester feat is controversial – I personally like it. Neither the Planar nor the Stygian powers, nor the “Psionic X” ones are very interesting.
It’s anecdotal, but Synchronicity is the source of many loopholes. The Erudite seems like a good idea too psion variant at the end of the bookbut I’ve never played one. I’m not a stickler for the “great history of mind flayers”, so the Heritage feats don’t irk me too much, but I usually end up reflavoring them anyway. In an Underdark game where I was playing a psion of the Oblodra line, they became “Oblodra Heritage”: My old characters I don’t game on this board anymore Avatar by Castaras ” Even gods must learn to control their tempers, lest they set a bad example.
The divine mind is a terrible idea.
Complete Psionic Errata Discussion
It essentially turns a psionic character into a tool in service of some god. Don’t we already have paladins, clerics, favored souls, ad completr to do that? The ardent is, essentially, a cleric that uses power points.
See what I said about the divine mind, above. The illithid heritage stuff didn’t bug me as much as some other people. It could have been improved if WotC bothered to proofread, though. Yeah, the PrCs pretty much sucked. Some of the powers stray from traditional psionic themes in that they channel divine entities, which shouldn’t be surprising given that two of the classes introduced in the book do the same.
The Complete Psionic – What’s wrong with it?
Furthermore, they wasted still more space by re-printing the entire power list. Some of the powers are nice, though, especially if you want to run a total psionics setting and need someone who can heal semi-efficiently.
I’m not a fan of the erudite. I have to say, spionic, that the synad is an interesting PC race. It’s not one of my favorite books, but it can be a handy resource. Just to add more fuel to the fire The Soulbow, one of the better PrCs in the book, starts off looking really cool.
That is, until you realize that for no reason whatsoever, its levels don’t stack with Soulknife levels for improving either class’s built-in weapon. So the “ranged soulknife” actually benefits more from Ranger or Druid, or whatever levels than from what should be the blatantly obvious complement. Originally Posted by Cheesegear.

If it exists, complfte is a divine-influenced version. The big problem is that it didn’t get the same level of attention and respect at WotC as the other Complete books, and it shows.
Bad editing and a lot of filler mar some really good content. For one thing, some of the mindblade feats can really help make a quasi-effective soulknife.
The Ardent is awesome, and makes a great psi-gish. I was thinking of the “special ability” bonuses i. Last edited by Artanis; at This is one of the rundowns I’ve seen of CPsi quite a few times. Seems complete, though I haven’t read the book personally. For one, it’s one of the worst-edited books since the advent of 3. There are more mistakes and flagrant stupidity than I’ve come across in any book, ever.
Take a good look at the Illithid Blast feat. Can you see what’s wrong with it? Build a mockup character and try to use the feat. Can you do it? And that’s just the very beginning. For two, they wasted huge amounts of space when they could easily have condensed half the feats and several pages in the powers section down to almost nothing such as the racial and soulknife feats. That they had to cut out a few dozen pages to make room for what’s in there means that we got wasted space, in the place of potentially excellent material.
For three, we have very, very little in the way of expanding psionics as it is; instead, we got NEW base classes, and most of the support is for them.
