Templar Psion Class

Description
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.

Thanks, a better barracks makes massive changes to the psi op (the vanilla one doesn't exsist). Nevermind will have to stick with a skirmisher with grenades and reaper with sword. running 96 mods missing one is to bad

Sorry for the slow response. I've been busy lately. Anyway, they use anything in the "psiamp" weapon category, which is the same weapon category used by the Psi Operative. So they should be able to use any modded psi amps that you have as long as the mod doesn't also make big changes to the Psi Operative class.

@PZ Do they use the standard Psi amps as i am using a better barracks that alter the psi system so normal amps do not upgrade. Do you know a way round this?
Other than this great set of mods

Ok, is the guy stored in the character pool as a normal Templar or as a Templar Psion? What rank was he when he joined your squad? (Or if you don't remember, was he a squaddie or was he ranked up?) Sorry for all the specific questions but if I can figure out exactly what happened maybe I can reproduce the issue, and then I can fix it, or at least figure out what is causing it.

Had the mod since the start of the game. I got the Templar from a covert Op (he's my 2nd one. First one was an actual Psion). It is a character from the character pool

drat ... had to ask!

@Ackerlight
Yes, it's a conflict with allowing SPARKs on covert actions. Both this mod and that one try to modify the covert slot, I guess.

@fleetadmiralj
Was it a new game or adding the mod to an old game? How did you acquire the Templar (e.g., started the game, covert action, console cheat, etc.)? Is he from the character pool or a randomly generatec character?

To be honest, probably not going to happen.

if i may ask for one addition of this class would be to be able to pick up focus orb from fallen enemy. ( i made 2 templar bondmate with the thought of using the templar ability to have teamate's kill spawn focus orb so that the templar Psion could pick them up).

would that be possible to do??

Yeah, I just ran into the same issue @ATF_Coldblooded Carebear did - guy came in as a regular Templar with autopistol but his skill tree is for a psion. I'm not entirely sure what mod conflict might be causing it. there are several. But I'd thought I'd mention it. I'll try the MakeFactionSoldierAClass in the meantime
