so it makes more sense for them to get the STR aptitude then a WS aptitude?

 

just to hit… so i guess in their training sessions they all stand around clumsy swinging wildly to just land a hit? no swift attack, no precision strikes, no lightning attacks, no dual-wiedling, nada? they just give them an extremely rare weapon and tell them: swing until you hit something?

I mean they buff using psychic powers. Instead of relying on sheer strength or skill they prepare themselves mentally. Abilities like Iron Arm or Warp Speed replace any need for straight WS or Str advances. As far as Swift Attack/Lightning Attack, well… Swift Attack is cheap enough to buy on its own. Sure, its still alot of XP, but its not unreasonable.

Heck, even invisibility is useful.

 

Also, where are your psykers magically getting their force weapons from? Its not really something covered in "training."

In their training sessions they meditate, train in focusing their minds, learn rites of protection, recite chants of abjuration and generally learn how not to be the cause of a daemonic invasion. In fact, most don't see a psychic weapon in their whole lives, so it's unlikely they give them such a rare weapon during their training. They'd likely blow themselves up.

@JuankiMan

you forgot pushups, lifting weights and benchpresses happy.gif
 

 

IMHO they should scrap the STR aptitude and replace it with an aptitude according to the specialisation:

Biomancy -> Defense

Divination -> Fieldcraft

Pyromancy -> Offense

Telekinesis -> Offense

Telepathy -> Leadership / Social

My poor, poor psyker would adore getting Fieldcraft with his Divination.

I think they should also scrap the freepick of powers. what's the point of having ten different offensive powers? you just pick the best. Who in their right mind would pick smite when you can pick spontanious combustion instead?

I personally think they should replace Strength with Defense since combined with Willpower and Psyker gives his cheap access to a whole slew of psychic defenses you would expect him to have.
