Here's the story:
All I wanted to do was make an honest-to-god no cheese robot-building psion. But to make a very mediocre creature that deals a whooping 1d6 + 9 damage with an attack at level 9 I would have to spend more time than most encounters lasted.
I eventually gave up and made a telekinetic thrust combo build (where you shoot 8 objects, each dealing +2d6 damage due to psionic shot).
I wanted to buy items to make my life easier, but magic items are overwhelmingly expensive. A rod of quickened power 3x per day costs a whooping 170k gold.
Here is the build:
Male True Neutral Gray-Elf lvl 6 Shaper Psion / lvl 3 Constructor, Level 9, Init +0, HP 35, Speed 30 ft. / 6 sq.
AC 11, Touch 10, Flat-footed 11, Fort 7, Ref 3, Will 11, Base Attack Bonus +4, Power Points 78

Abilities Str 5, Dex 11, Con 12, Int 22, Wis 16, Cha 16
Concealling Amorph, Greater
Dimension Door, Psionic
1- Boost Construct
3- Psionic Shot
6- Permanent Focus(psionic shot)
9- Knowledge Devotion

Bonus 5- Narrow Minded
Bonus flaw 1- Improved Psicrystal (Observant)
Bonus flaw 2- Point Blank Shot
Noncombatant (-2 melee)
Elven Pride of Arms (Can only use elvish arms)
What items can I buy to either make my astral construct not such a disappointing power or make my telekinetic thrust combo not miss 70% of the arrows I fire?
