    Actually, I may just stick with what I have, but put it in another thread. Variety is good(but not for this specific thread)... or maybe I will do both. OTOH we do have two other attempts in this thread, and if those suffice...

    So would 2/3 initiator progression be the way to go (if anywhere), or is 3/4 actually acceptable? All the way down to 1/2?

    Ah, will specifically nerf-bat that then if I continue with this.

    Well, reducing the initiator level progression should help with that too, but I can reduce that too if people think it necessary.

    1/2 would probably be too far, since at that point a warrior can just take martial study. 3/4 is simpler, since it's a new maneuver level every 3 class levels. I'm not sure what 2/3 looks like.

    The Elementalist is stronger than you think; Expanded Knowledge (Astral Construct) at 6th level would be a lovely boost...

    Dang, I just noticed that they have 1/3 manifesting level; I would suggest raising that to 1/2, just because it comes out a little nicer, in my mind (and they wouldn't be able to manifest 4th level powers with a manifester level of 6. Sorry.)
    I specifically left it at 1/3ML, simply because they can still take that feat if they so choose. If I raise their ML any, I'll be putting a ban on Expanded Knowledge. What is the general consensus on this? Raise ML to 1/2 and block the feat, or leave it as is? I kind of feel I should block the feat, after much reconsideration, but I'd like to hear what you all think.

    Leave as is, it's the class in itself which is aiming for T6, optimisation is a completely seperate consideration. Besides, at 1/3 ML having access to Exp. Knowledge doesn't help so much.

    I was actually suggesting a ML of 1/2 level because they LITERALLY CANNOT USE A 4TH LEVEL POWER!

    That would require a ML of 7, which would require level 21.

    Not true. There's no general rule linking ML to powers known. Most 4th lvl powers cost 7pp, but energy burst only costs 5.

    Since the class does not specifically state otherwise, yet still made learns it as a 4th level power, Energy Burst costs 7 PP.

    This is slightly confusing. The text says 1 ML per 3 levels, which would mean an ML of 0 from level 1-2, ML 1 at level 3, ML 2 at level 6, ML 3 at level 9, ML 4 at level 12, ML 5 at level 15, and ML 6 at level 18. However, the example states otherwise. Judging from the example and the levels at which new powers are gained, was the ML supposed to be 1 + 1/3 class levels?

    Edit:

    New maneuver levels come every 2 IL. A 2/3 IL progression gives a new level of maneuvers every 3 levels (1st level maneuvers come at level 2, up until 7th level maneuvers at level 20). A 3/4 IL progression gives 3 levels of maneuvers over the course of every 8 levels (1st level maneuvers come at level 2, 2nd at 4, 3rd at 7, 4th at 10, 5th at 12, 6th at 15, 7th at 18, and 8th at level 20).

    That's because Energy Burst is a 3rd level power.

    I mean, check Empathic Feedback; it shows the difference in power point costs through a power having a different pp cost based on being different levels for different classes.

    And, as for it never explicitly says that it needs to cost x many PP...

    Quote Originally Posted by SRD

    The psionic character class tables show how many power points a character has access to each day, depending on level.

    A power’s cost is determined by its level, as shown below. Every power’s cost is noted in its description for ease of reference.
    Table: Power Points by Power Level
    {table]Power Level|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9
    Power Point Cost|1|3|5|7|9|11|13|15|17[/table]
    Please do the research before you make claims.

    Ah, I'd missed that. I'd gotten used to looking at power descriptions. Energy Burst is usually 3rd level.

    It would seem elegant to increase the base damage to 7d6. Or maybe neater to just swap in energy ball.

    Also it would be neater if the new powers all occurred at 6n+1, instead of 6n except the first. And it might be clearer if ml were a column in the table.

    You need to bump up the 0th level spells per day by 1 each or otherwise modify, because you don't get bonus 0th levels. Maybe say that any bonus spells of higher than the highest level you can cast (at that particular class level) apply to 0th level instead? It would be an odd mechanic, but I think it would work...

    I apologize if I'm breaking forum etiquette by reviving this; I finished this one a bit ago but never got to posting it.

    I'm not sure about this one. I feel that the Barbarian is already a pretty crappy class, so it kind of hurt to make it crappier. Still, here you go, a T6 Barbarian:

    Illiteracy, Rage, Fast Movement, Damage Reduction: As the Barbarian class abilities of the same name.


    I feel the full BAB may be too much; should I make it 3/4BAB?

    Also, edited the Elementalist to gain ML at every odd level.

    Also also, still working on a T6 Ranger/Scout.

    For easy perusal, all my T6 classes are on the first page in my first post in this thread.

    That savage is overpowered. It's T5 at least, possibly even T4.

    Drop uncanny dodge and tireless rage.

    Move fast movement to 4th level.

    T5 I can understand, but how in heck does this hit T4? The original Barbarian is solidly in 4. Still, I will nerf it.

    Tireless Rage can go, I can see where it's breaking the limit. Uncanny Dodge was also removed. I left the BAB at full; it's no more powerful than my Holy Warrior T6 at this point.

    I have never home-brewed and my doctor says I have a table allergy, but how about the spectaculenduferous class
    ...
    The Fat Person
    Advantages: takes significantly less falling damage, has a lot of hit points, some resistance to blunt weapons, and can sit on an enemy by moving into their square and making an unarmed check

    Disadvantages: slow, worse at dodge rolls, and bad at disguise and diplomacy checks

    Possible other abilities: chokes enemies by smothering them, anvil-like flattening abilities, and ability to increase size at will
    I am a dark/ice type pokemon with moves:
    chatter, hyper voice, nasty plot, torment.
