Here is the shardmind telekinetic psion I've created for the delve, with charbuilder summary. I went with telekinetic focus to see how controllery he can be with lots of forced movement. I think this psion can set up enemies nicely for Zach's wizard to area blast lots at once or to reposition enemies where they are/can be flanked by the melee characters. Psion is still fairly new to us here, so we'll see how it goes. I also looked at the shaper psion from the new powerbook and although that one appealed to me more, it's not in charbuilder yet, so this will be easier.

I have one question about how superior implements are meant to work together with magical implement items. I noticed that charbuilder doesn't merge the two, but treats them as separate implements. In the case of Saphiro, is it possible for him to have one orb only, a "Petrified Orb of Nimble Throughts +2"?

I think the CB updates tomorrow, actually. Which might result in me suddenly switching to a mul or thri-kreen of some sort. ;)

To get a magic superior implement, go to the "magic implement" section, choose the specific superior implement type you're using, then the specific type of magic implement it is. That said, it doesn't seem to be doing the math right with Emily's new implement in Kingmaker. Hopefully that gets fixed tomorrow...

Here's the picture and statblock I'll use. Saphiro has very high intiative to blast a cluster of enemies from the get-go and set things up for the wizard and melee characters. I also found some nifty cognizance crystals to keep him going during an encounter even if he misses at times. His petrified superior orb will allow him to force movement even more. He also has some teleport and shifting options to get out of a jam, but he really should avoid taking hits with his low hp and low surge number.

Nathan, I already emailed you the jpeg, charbuilder, and pdf files on him.

Thanks Gary. I tried that, but also can't seem to get the superior implement type to merge with the magic item. Even using control to highlight both only adds the superior implement to you inventory.

I thought charbuilder wasn't updating until next month, since it isn't on the calendar. I might change to a shaper psion if it does update.

We got Emily's magic accurate holy symbol equiped, but it still wasn't adding both +1's form accurate AND magic.

I didn't look at the calendar, but it'd be really odd not to get Dark Sun and Psionic Power into the builder on schedule. That's a lot of new stuff.

Finally got it to work. Unfortunately, it only adds the magical item to your inventory cards so you have to remember what the superior part of it is. In my case, petrified does +2 extra damage with force powers along with bonus forced movement. Charbuilder is only counting the +2 damage once for the nimble thoughts orb+2 though. I'm thinking maybe charbuilder has it right and we have it wrong. Since both bonuses are coming from the same type of magical item (e.g. and orb or a wand), they maybe don't stack?

Not sure about that combo. But if Accurate implements don't stack with magic bonuses, then it's a worthless option, and I can't believe that was the intent.

I also have Superior Implement feat. My wizard would normally use a staff, but she went for the step-up and her superior implement is a tome. There is 3 various tomes which she has, each of which can enhance her powers in different ways. Useful for a specific encounter.

I also took dual implement spellcaster feat. This allows her to hold a staff in her off-hand and the tome in the other.

The staff is a +2 staff, so that applies to attack & damage rolls. Further, the tome lets me add another +2 to damage (as per the feat). This comes from the enhancement bonus of the off-hand implement.

This might be how they want you to line it up in order to get the stacked damage.

As for the Psion working well w/ Etherra, please keep in mind, my wizard is more control than a blaster...

She'll sacrifice damage (-2 w/ Enlarge Spell feat) to get a larger burst & blast area w/ her powers, catching more foes than usual...

I don't think charbuilder updated, so I'm sticking with Saphiro, the telekinetic psion.

Zach, my psion is very controllery as well, so it will be interesting for us. We should have a lot of fun coralling enemies any way we want. Especially if you use an enlarged grasping shadows. Any enemies not in the 4x4 zone can be forced in by my psion to also slightly damage and slow them.

Mix that w/ Visions of Avarice, and they're goners for a long time...

Then our melee combatants can clean up the artillery and skirmirshers...

then we can fire away on those who are trapped

Sorry folks. I'm still a bit frazzled. I'm going to check the builds for those that haven't sent a character builder file to me, then get moving on things. Fist post is aimed for this weekend at the latest. If you can, please email me your CB file to my username gmail.com
