What are the Astral Constructs (mindless, construct type) possible actions in the sense of "performing other actions" beside attacking particular enemies, using specific tactics or powers, or doing nothing at all, and wording of the orders to achieve "other actions"?
We had a lot of discussion about what sort of actions can astral construct do besides attacking. The RAW is clear about what is astral construct, how it looks like, and it describes the basic mechanics of using it on combat.
Combat: Astral constructs act as directed by their creators. As a free action, a construct’s manifester can direct the construct to attack particular enemies, use specific tactics or powers, perform other actions, or do nothing at all. The construct does exactly what its creator directs it to do.
We also found a feat named Advanced Constructs [Psionic], using a term "task" under Utility(Ex), which we understand well.
Thats why we argue about term "other actions".
Does astral construct understand mental orders saying: "hunt a rabbit" when the manifester and his astral construct can see the rabbit, or "move the party across the river", "dig a pit or hole", "break the door directing to it with a finger".
Does it mean that other actions are kind of "other combat actions" like aid another or total defense?
The conclusion is that tasks are different from "other actions".
What exactly are those other actions?
