Playtesting the Psi Knight Sub-Class for Fighter



Our Friday group was able to physically get together this past weekend and I asked if I could convert my 7th level Kensei Monk to the Psi Knight to try it out. My DM is cool and allowed me to switch it up with a story idea.

AJ is great DM and his sessions are always a blast. We have a lot of fun in his game and this session was no different.

As I played the Psi Knight something strange occurred. I've never one of those people who think Psionics doesn't fit into Fantasy but that is the conclusion I ended up feeling at the end of the session. The Psi Knight did pretty well in our fights, at least as well as my Monk, but his powers just didn't feel right to me. In fact, I felt the build was a little one-dimensional.

While the movement abilities are intriguing I don't know that I'd use them much.

At the end of the session I asked if it was cool to go back to my Monk build and thankfully AJ was good with that too.

I'm still intrigued by the Psychic Sub-Classes but I'm not sure if I'm as willing to add them to my games.
