Is Power sole number checked for computing RESIST checks?

Post by The Apprentice » Sun Feb 22, 2015 9:51 pm

I have a Scout who is having her psi-drain resisted fairly frequently, even on creatures that normally (in my experience) resist often. Blue Zuul Pups and mad scientists, Sand Snakes, M'kkose Gestalts, etc. (No psi defense props in the rooms/hallways)

Being a Scout, her stat growth is low, and she has a power of only 66. Her effective empathy skill is 99 (89 plus CE Helm), however.

Does anyone know for sure if raising her power stat would solve the issue? Or is there a different thing going on here? Thanks!

Um... maybe?

From the player's perspective, is it the Scout's Power stat that a mob's resist chance is compared to?

Or is something else of the Scout's checked, like Skill or Level?

After eating like 30 edu pets as a psion I can tell you that Power is definitely a factor in landing psionics. My character had so low power that none of his psionics worked except for TK. No idea if there are other factors. Devs won't tell us :D
