Psychic Blade on page 177 should include the addition: “When rolling a 95-00 while attacking with a Psychic Blade, a stray thought causes the psyker to attack and automatically strike the nearest being within melee range. If there are several targets, the psyker strikes the one that is most signi? cant to his emotional state. If there is no one in range, he automatically strikes himself.”
Our group pysker is reading this errata, that as long as he is fighting an enemy, such a pressing concern of not dying will mean that he will never be able to hit himself unless he starts waving the sword around when noone else is there, something that sounds ridicukous as why would you be using a melee power outside of combat ?. Does anyone have the correct/official interpretation of this errata as it is beginning to annoy me that essentially if a psyker roleplays a self hating coward he can essentially count 95-100 as a hit, any enemies or others near him will always be more significant to his emotional state in this case. Just seems to wrong that the only way he could ever possibly hit himself with it is if he is practising with it somewhere outside of combat whereas an eviscerator, which has a similar effect, if you miss to such a degree pays you back for the power it gives you.
Any help would be appreciated,
