Templar Psion Class

There are some Templars who believe that nothing so vulgar as an automatic pistol should be used by a true psionic warrior. Instead, they've adopted XCOM's Psi Amp technology and merged it with their own, allowing them to unlock even more formidable psionic talents.

The Templar Psion class is an additional class for the Templars. Newly created Templars will have a random chance to be a Templar Psion instead.

  • Instead of Volt, Templar Psions get a version of Insanity that costs 1 focus but has no cooldown. Their other Squaddie-level abilities are the same as a regular Templar.
  • At Corporal level, Templar Psions can choose between Soulfire, Amplify, and Stasis, which all cost 1 focus to use.
  • At Sergeant level, they get Overcharge or Stasis Shield.
  • At Lieutenant level, they get Parry, Solace, Sustain, or Deep Focus.
  • At Captain level, they get Schism, Fortress, or Rapid Soulfire, which allows the use of Soulfire without ending the turn.
  • At Major level, they get Domination or Inspire, both of which cost 1 focus.
  • And at Colonel level, they get either Null Lance or Void Rift, both of which cost 2 focus, or Supreme Focus, which allows a 4th level of Focus.

Like a Psi Operative, a Templar Psion does not get randomized XCOM perks.

Make sure you have the Multiple Faction Soldier Classes mod installed, or Templar Psions won't show up!

You won't see a Psi stat because the game is hardcoded to only show it for Psi Operatives. You can use my UI mod to fix that.

WOTC Only.

Hmm is it random for templar or templar psion soldiers? All the templars I've received have been psion.

If I wanted to make some adjustments, like increase damage to soul fire etc, can I do so in the .ini?

@PZ, no worries. Just a cool idea I had. Thanks for being so responsive. The Psionically Guided Bullets mod was really what inspired me, so maybe check that out?

I pretty much just copy-pasted the stuff from the Templar, to be honest. I might look at it at some point but no promises.

@PZ Focus baseline only increases Rend damage, mobility, and dodge (not particularly helpful for this variation). Would it be possible to add a function to allow and edit boosts to Psi Offense? (or is there a way I can do that myself in the .ini?) I'm playing with mods that increase my max focus to 10, and I think that would add some fun dynamics to the gameplay with Focus fluctuations.

It does get stat bonuses from focus. It doesn't get any other benefits.

Does this class get stat bonuses from Focus? Increased damage on Soulfire or increased Psi Offense (a la Psionically Guided Bullets ?

I believe it would been badass if the templar have both all it ability and all the psi operative ability and I mean all. That is what I want.

Sweet thanks for the compatibility changes.

Updated! It is now compatible with No More Psi Amps.
