Psionic: This weapon uses the wielder's Ego modifier for penetration bonus instead of Strength mod and attacks MA instead of AV. It will dissipate from the corporeal realm after some use.

psionic is an untinkerable mod that is found on the weapons of all dervishes.

The psionic mod changes a melee weapon to use mental attacks. Its PV becomes modified by the attacker's ego modifier instead of strength modifier, penetration is calculated against the target's mental armor (MA) instead of the target's regular armor (♦AV), and it cannot affect targets which have a mental shield.[1] Cleave will inflict psionically cleaved instead of cleaved.[2]

Weapons with this modifier are temporary, and will dissolve from the physical realm after a pre-determined number of uses. When an item with this modification is created, it starts with a random number of swings from 126-500. After attacking with this weapon, regardless of whether the weapon hits or misses, the number of swings remaining will decrease by one.[1]

Swings Left Description
More than 375 substantial
Between 250 and 375 lambent
Between 125 and 250 tenuous
Less than or equal to 125 insubstantial

Once there are no more remaining swings, the item will disappear.[1]
