This Mutation costs 4 Mutation Points.
You tap into the aggregate mind and steal power from other espers.
At Level 1: Edit
Refreshes all mental mutations
Small chance each round for another esper to steal your powers
-200 reputation with the Seekers of the Sightless Way
Each level decreases the chance another esper will steal your powers.
More importantly, each level decreases the cooldown by 50 rounds. In addition to this, each point of Ego mod also decreases the cooldown 40 rounds; therefore, increasing your Ego mod by 1 will reduce Mass Mind's cooldown by a total of 90.
With an Ego of 38 (and, therefore, a mod of +11), Mass Mind's cooldown will be 10. With an Ego of 40+, it will be 5 (the minimum.) This allows high-level Espers to use Mass Mind to deploy some mutations (like Precognition) far faster than they otherwise could.
- Can be a huge power boost and will probably save your life a few times, essentially letting you use all of your mental mutations twice in desperate situations.
- Can kill you by stripping away all of your mental mutations in the middle of a big fight, though in reality this is relatively uncommon.
- Will make the Seekers of the Sightless Way, a faction which can teach you mental mutations via the Water Ritual, hate you more.
