Terra, you make a valid point. I would specify that Super Intellect is what makes most mental builds nearly unretaliateable (Heheh, I hope that's a word), at least for most non stunners. Mental abilities like Shadow, Radiation and a few others seem to offer a bit more variety as well.
I've tried alot of different mental (sometimes mental and dark) builds WITHOUT the use of Super Intellect. Meheheh, I've done much testing on this just like a good little researcher. Crits weren't as high - around 230-360, or somthing like that. They were modest, so I do see potential for changes that will make the build less "cheap & overpowered". Yes, it would have to be for Super Intellect though.
Super Intellect Description - "Your brain surges with power increasing the effectiveness of all mental abilities by 100% and mental critical strike chance by 50%."
And that's for lvl 20 SI. Those are some pretty substantial odds! >XD
