It was published in August Ending the Powers Books. It includes new builds for the four psionic classes — the ardent, battlemind, monk, and psion — as well as a variety of other options including powers, bloodlines, feats, magic items, paragon paths, and epic destinies. At the time, it looked like the Powered splatbooks were going strong. In two years, individual books had detailed all five known power sources; there had even been a Martial Power 2 book, suggesting the longevity of the line.
Then in late , everything abruptly changed. Following the August publication of Psionic Power, both the core book series and the Powered series for 4e came to an abrupt end. They were replaced the next month by the brand-new Essentials line, which premiered with a Starter Set , Heroes of the Fallen Lands , and the Rules Compendium About Psionics.
Psionic powers were now linked to a character class, the psionicist. The powers available to a psionicist were greatly expanded and organized into six disciplines: clairsentience, psychokinesis, psychometabolism, psychoportation, telepathy, and metapsionics. Though psionics had always had a science-fantasy edge to them, that was more obvious than ever thanks to the new detailing of the 2e psionicist. Psionics got additional attention during the 2e era thanks to Dark Sun , a setting that placed a heavy emphasis on the mental powers.
A number of variant psionicist classes were introduced in the later books, including the ardent, the divine mind, the lurk, the psychic warrior, the soulknife, and the wilder — offering more variety for psionics than every before. About the Ardent. The ardent shares a name with a class that premiered in Complete Psionic James Wyatt described the 4e ardent as the "the psionic warlord". About the Battlemind. The battlemind started out as a totally different class called the "ironjack", which was a fey trickster warrior.
It later became a "psychic warrior", repeating a class name from Expanded Psionics Handbook It finally settled into its place as a battlemind with no fey connections at all. About the Monk. That changed with the release of 2.
The new 4e monk was also a big change from his predecessors because he was based on the psionic power source. About the Psion.
The 4e psion also was different from its predecessors in one other way: he had finally shed the science fantasy theming that had surrounded the class since its earliest days. About the Creators. Please feel free to mail corrections, comments, and additions to shannon.

Index of Psionic Powers
Psionics were first introduced in Eldritch Wizardry There was no official specific character class that specialized in psionic powers, although an unofficial class, the psionicist, was introduced in Dragon Magazine issue Powers are designated as either sciences major powers or devotions minor powers. As a psionicist gains experience and advances in level, he acquires more powers; for instance, a 1st-level psionicist has only one science and three devotions, but gets 10 sciences and 25 devotions if he makes it to 20th level. When attempting to use a power, the player makes a Power Check by rolling 1d20 and comparing the result to the Power Score. A roll less than or equal to the Power Score means success. Additionally, each power description includes a specific penalty suffered by the psionicist if a 20 is rolled.

There is no real change in the power balance structure here. Heck; even its augments are good. Originally Posted by Dice4Hire.
