Hey, was just looking at the Tome of Fate for some interesting powers for my pysber raven minion if he ever hits Greater Minion and was looking at Befuddling Curse (yes, I know it requires alignment).
Re-reading it, I'm just a little curious as to whether it's actually a bolt attack given it doesn't follow the standard pattern which gives exact rules after the description. It does mention bolt in the initial description but it seems that the target really doesn't get the chance to dodge it.
I bring this up because if it's not a psychic bolt attack, then it seems way too powerful given its prerequisites; Aligned Tzeentch, PR 3.
Given it basically means that you have a 90% chance of taking someone out for at least a couple of rounds (assuming 40 toughness) with only a minor chance of actually being useful (rolls frenzy, rolls coming out the walls and shoots in the right direction by chance, rolls small and somehow passes all fear tests) and with a couple more PR, you pretty much have a guarantee of it, the lack of counterplay seems…a bit excessive for 250xp.
Now granted there are a few ways to deal with it. Be immune, be a psyker with a hood, be a big mob, but these are a little too restrictive for encounters given that once you take this power, you can pretty much deal with everything else and thus the GM must have one of these options to even challenge the party.
Basically, all this is building up to the hope that someone tells me that this power is a bolt attack.
