Lets look at Psyker as a Support class (vid)

Righto - Been playing about and honestly think that this class is completely viable as a support class, buffing allies and making them more powerful. See what you think, let me know what you have tried!

With the spells ingame buffing is pointless. You'll never be able to buff someone or yourself enough to be more usefull then a full dmg specced player.
You don't have to increase someones damage to > than your own for it to be worth. You need to buff someone to the point that something you couldn't do - you now can do. 


For Eg if you can make a crusader capable of front lining enemies that would normally kill him. Or if you can stop the assassin dieing in 1 hit at +400 difficulty. Then your job is done.  Admittedly this only really applies to higher difficulties but it goes without saying that at lower levels having 4 dps classes is usually most efficient.

Roshimbo ( or Warp/Constrict)  is pretty much the build I have been running for about a week.


If you run with a Crusader with Heavy Flamer you can Gib with Constrict at will.  Does inferno pistol have high Suppression?  hrm...if so then there may be a hybrid..


Bio Lightning with Vulnerability Mastery and +50% suppression damage Mastery. 

Signums with Supression damage.


Precognitive dodge with All Damage Mastery.

I've been using your typical solo fire mage build so far. I maxed out the psypower tree and put a couple points in armor breaking and piercing from the debuff tree. He solos pretty well, but those dang tanks give him fits. I do buff fire shield if I'm running with my brother but co-op is still a little janky at the moment. I'd be willing to try a bard buff build just to see what he could do with the mid range crusader. Looks interesting at least, but never been a full healer fan in MMOs personally.
