Mind Melders!

I’ve collected all tweet Questions about Psionic Unearthed Arcana, with answers from designers Master Mike Mearls and Jeremy Crawford.

Just a note, this is playtest material is not final, Master Mike wants to stress rules and have your feedbacks from the next survey, probably you’ll see a third and fourth version of Psionic before will be official.
Remember: this is the same method used for 5th edition rules, the best rules ever created.

    How does Mystic work with multi-classing? What carries over from the listed proficiencies, and is 13 INT the only requirement?

    Also, how does Strength of Mind work if you don’t start out as a Mystic?

    Has there been any more information about the mystic released since February 2016? Will another version say “take 3” be released before 2017?

      Clever Josh

      Unfortunately I’m not a DnD Designer, you could ask directly via Twitter to Master Mike @mikemearls but they usually don’t spoil next releases

    Mystic’s Adaptive Body’s focus says that you don’t need to ‘eat,sleep or breathe’. Do you still need to drink then?

  4. Vincent Childs says:

    Is the psionic focus from Iron Durability stackable with Iron Hide? In my mind, the psionic focusing keeps the AC at +1, with the activation of Iron Hide as a reaction providing a surge to bring it up an additional +1 per psionic point. Or is it a case of one replacing the other completely?

    With the new version making all psionics magical effects.

    How do you determine a psionic’s ability’s relative spell level for purposes of Dispel Magic and Counterspell?

  6. Michael Broderick says:

    Some of the Mystic’s powers state things like, this:
    “Wind Stream (1–7 psi)
    As an action, you create a line of focused air that is 30 feet long and 5 feet wide. Each creature in that area must make a Strength saving throw, taking 1d8 bludgeoning damage per psi point spent and being knocked prone on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.”
    – Doesn’t specify that they don’t fall prone on a successful save.

    Other powers specify things like this:
    Combustion (1–7 psi; conc., 1 min.)
    As an action, choose one creature or object you can see within 120 feet of you. The target must make a Constitution save. On a failed save, the target takes 1d10 fire damage per psi point spent, and it catches on fire, taking 1d6 fire damage at the end of each of its turns until your concentration ends or until it or a creature adjacent to it extinguishes the flames with an action. On a successful save, the target takes half as much damage and doesn’t catch on fire.”
    – Specifies that they don’t catch fire.

    Is the intention of the wording for the first power that the targets would still fall prone on a successful save, or is it saying that a successful save simply halves the damage?

    Thanks! 😀
