Use this skill to identify psionic powers as they manifest or psionic effects already in place.
The character can identify psionic powers and psionic effects.
|15 + power level||Identify a power as it manifests. (The character must sense the power’s display, or see some visible effect, to identify a power.) No retry.|
|15 + power level||Learn a power from a power stone. No retry for that power until the character gains at least 1 rank in Psicraft (even if he or she finds another source to try to learn the same power from).|
|20 + power level||Identify a power that’s already in place and in effect. (The character must be able to see or detect the effects of the power.) No retry.|
|20 + power level||Identify materials created or shaped by psionics. No retry.|
|30 or higher||Understand a strange or unique psionic effect. No retry.|
Additionally, certain powers allow a character to gain information about psionics provided that he or she makes a Psicraft check as detailed in the psionic power description.
A psion gets a +2 bonus when dealing with a power or effect from his or her primary discipline.
If a character has 5 or more ranks of Use Psionic Device, he or she gets a +2 synergy bonus on Psicraft checks to decipher powers encoded in power stones.
