It was asked, and GW studiously avoided it.

 

Yeah, hopefully they'll get into psychic powers more in one of their daily updates until launch.

Jeske, the librarian/farseer divide was also because they had different powers. Having access to disciplines removes much of that issue.

For whom? for armies like marines that got showered with a book that gives them psychic powers[which probably will be gone when 8th starts]. On the other hand for factions like orcs[bad psykers, bad schools], tyranids[bad school], or chaos [ton of bad schools] it did help at all. Chaos for example actualy has to avoid using their marked casters, because their god schools are so bad, you want to activly avoid taking them.

 

But yeah if you get a convclave, multiple good schools or eldar two for one type of psychic powers, then yes I can imagine someone feeling alright.

 

 

To think Marines of any variety should be as good or better at that is ... not ... okay.

 

 

Well this is a fluff thing . I was a tyranid player, the idea of Tigurius linking up with the entire hive mind, and not just probing, but activly forcing data out of it is beyond stupid. But that is the fluff, and I would rather have stupid fluff, but good mechanics, then bad mechanics.

Now, now, Jeske.

Tigarius is the most powerful non Primarch psyker since Malcador by all accounts.

Now, now, Jeske.

Tigarius Mepiston, Lord of Death is the most powerful non Primarch psyker since Malcador by all accounts.

 

FTFY ;)

 

Tid bit of info... Not sure if it's been mentioned yet but in the " 3 Ways to Play " overview on the community site they said:

 

 

Matched play also has a few extra rules that impact the game itself, mostly to do with things like deploying reserves, summoning or generating reinforcements, using psychic powers and limiting how often you can use your army’s Stratagems (more on those soon).

 

Could be just a simple mention, or perhaps matched play will have restrictions on psychic powers.

 

For one, I bet summoning costs points now.

Could either have reforged the Titan Sword with nothing but their Psychic Might and their bare hands, while in the Warp?

 

Don't think so. :P

We all feel different ways about different rules, but if you're traveling between different gaming groups or to tournaments, the only commonality is the rules as they are written. If you can get your opponent to agree with you on house-ruling something then that changes things, but until then all we can do is go by how things are written.

Now, now, Jeske.

Tigarius is the most powerful non Primarch psyker since Malcador by all accounts.

The hive mind channeled, silenced a dome of crystal seers buffed legion of warlocks and eldar farseers. This mean tiguius>all warlocks+farseers present on Iyaden at the time of tyranid assault. This is beyond spirtual liege level. this is magnus tier stuff, and he did without any support rituals too.

 

All in all it looks like the new action phase is shaping up to be a realy nice thing. as far as mechanics go, god knows how it is going to look like on a per army basis. Limited number of options can hurt weaker armies a lot, or buff them in sky high, if the powers have wide effect. I still hope that ground tyrants and fly tyrents end up with a different set of powers, and that other nid MC will be useful too.

 

 

Also dat BA librarian dread, so good in 8th.

Pete Foley tweeted earlier today that the Psychic Phase will be different than currently, and stated he'd reveal more on it later.  I'm guessing they've already made plans to dedicate a Warhammer Community article to it, so didn't want to spoil that.

even if it has 1 psychic power it is still a good unit. Just like an NDK.

Answers that will no doubt result in further questions. I just hope it's broad enough for us to extrapolate how Psyker heavy or light armies will be able to deal with the opposing force.

So 8th will be out end of May, not June as previously stated (according to the Whispers in the Warp :-P).

Edit: Whoops, wrong topic
