Balance[edit]

That is a lot of extra attacks... Especially with Psychic Weapon Master 5. For the sake of argument, also assume he uses Prowess and something to make all those attacks connect (not very hard when using either powers or magic). He gets dex + wis + 3 AoOs per round -- both of which are very useful stats for AC for a monk. With Heavenly Sword or Divine Spear (homebrew which I hardly consider broken), Psionic Fist, and say a +6 modifier on both at 20th level (which is probably on the low side), he will get 15 longsword AoOs with a 15-20 critical range. The build would be Monk 6, Psionic Fist 5, Psychic Weapons Master 9. His BAB is +18, and his base saves are +9/+16/+13. When I was toying around with idea, I was trying to get War Mind 5 in there for Sweeping strike, but I couldn't figure out how to get Knowledge (psionics) to 8 ranks without blowing a level in psychic warrior.

To fix it, I would have it give a cumulative -2 to hit each time this feat triggers. That character above would have a lot of trouble hitting with the later ones (-30 to hit on the last one). Diminishing returns solves a lot of problems imho. --Aarnott 10:18, 19 April 2008 (MDT)

Ack, I actually was going to put in a cumulative -2 penalty for each attack.--Calidore Chase 16:05, 19 April 2008 (MDT)
Good to see you thought of that too :). --Aarnott 03:45, 20 April 2008 (MDT)
