I was wondering, does damage from the bio-lightning & Fire bolt psychic powers ignore armor?
Instinctively, I would say yes and threat does powers like "fire damage" but I'm not sure and I can't seem to find the answer.
Thanks in advance
this is actually a good question, because as it stands Bio Lightning isn't all to powerful, essentially it doesn't really seem to take off as an offensive power despite being
a 14 threshold, other powers in the same threshold range can do way more then BL, even though you could hit multiple targets against it doesn't seem all that powerful unless you get unnatural willpower. Am I missing something? because all I can really see it as is an auto-gun that can really mess up your day on a 9.
Unless you're going a medic-Psyker, Biomancy seems to find its niche in versatility, rather than straight up power. Bio-Lightning is the Biomancer's offensive spell. It's not as powerful as some Telekinetic spells, or Pyromancy spells, but it's better than nothing, and hell, at higher ranks can still hit pretty hard (my last session, my Psyker managed to do approximately the equivalent damage of a plasma cannon with a Bio Lightning attack, even taking pen values into account).
Overall though Biomancy's biggest advantage (aside from Seal Wounds and Regeneration) is its ability to do a LOT, rather than the ability to do one thing really WELL.
....That said, I personally might allow Bio Lightning to ignore primitive armors as long as they're metal. But that'd be a house rule, more than anything.
