STR 3
DEX 3
AGI 6
CON 9
PER 3
WILL 10
INT 6

Feats:

(Psi Empathy)

Conditioning (Con 5)
Fast Metabolism (Con 6)
Juggernaut (Str 7 Con 7)
Stoicism (Con 7 Will 7)
Survival Instincts (Con 9)
Psychosis > Psionic Mania (Will 8 Level 8)
Neural Overclocking (Will 10 psi 65)

Thermodynamicity (Metathermics 30)
Pyromaniac (Metathermics 35)
Hypothermia (Metathermics 40)
Premeditation (psi 40)

Skills:

Mechanics (for crafting armor)

One option - Hemopsychosis to lean into 'tank' build. Your preexisting juggernaut, stoicism, psychosis will work well with it, though SI won't.

Sprint / Haste seems pretty crucial for quality of life. Hemo, or maybe meditation instead, would help you occasionally tap into it and get some range in there.

Why not Locus of Control? Are you planning on using NO all game? Not sure how much you'll end up using it.

Take Locus of Control.

You can dump agi to 3, especially if not taking sprint. You want more INT as you will like the additional slots.

SI works great with Hemopsychosis, especially with Last Stand and TM Stasis/LTI.

Generally SI is great for the early game, later on you won't bother with it except for choice encounters.

Sykar didn't you make one of those

luj1 you gonna center your build around SI? I take it's not very good tanking stuff with just 1/3 of your HP, i've played a lot of builds with SI and they're very frail

I wouldn't compare chem pistol / weapon-based SI and Mania PSI SI, with the latter you're not reliant on the crit % as much, so you can often start combat with normal HP levels later on.

1. Choose a game with psionics and metal armours (like KotC 2).
2. Take a race suited for it (humans are good for everything, especially in KotC 2).
3. Max the casting stat at character creation.
4. If the class doesn't allow for medium armour, take a perk.
5. Wear a medium metal armour.
6. Build done. Profit?

Even with 9 Con + heavy armor + Juggernaut + Conditioning + Fast Metabolism?
All those feats with low HP seems like a waste to me if, besides a crit PSI nuker is a really feat hungry build, on top of that you have low mobility as a tin can, so you can't break LOS that often, and stealth is really important for a SI build

Maybe you should try a Psi Tank with TM. Distortion on high levels are pretty good, even though TM was made thinking about mobility and evasion it could be interesting since contraction gives you MP no matter how much armor penalty you have
