Al right, though in my Opinion a Rank 8 Magus is no Joe Tech-Priest anymore. M) But I get your point. I was just wondered because in my Opinion a Tech-Priest should get his hands on any kind of technology though it should be linked to some careers. For example the secutor career, the militant approach, has its respective exotic weapon trainings.
I know that no common Tech-Priests would get his hands on the high-end stuff of a specific field of technology but atleast the Magi with their different specialisms should have no borders beside the reputation thing as it already works for the Axe/Rod. Especialy if you take into account that (depending on the novel) some Tech-Priests are friggin death-machines even Space Marines "fear" - Or because of the lack of this emotion "respect".^^
But yes, an elite advancements should do the trick though I wonder what XP cost it should have? I gues around 200-300? As the writer what would be your suggestion?
PS: I love the luminen talents, they are not strong enough to outclass other gear but still strong enough to be an ace in the hole or to create awsome situations. KA ME HA ME HA!^^
