Overview

Manipulate your enemies with an array of offensive Psionic powers. Few living beings can resist their effects. Creatures without minds, however, like machines and robots, are much more resistant. Mental Manipulation is a secondary power set for Blasters.

This powerset was added to the game in Issue 12.
