Psychics are masters of mental magic and are capable of casting both strong offensive and defensive spells. They no longer pursue mastery of the elements, but instead manipulate the essence of the instinct of creatures. They manifest their will through Soulforce to enhance themselves and their allies while harming their enemies. With a soulsphere weapon at their disposal, they deal water and earth damage. A psychic's strength in a squad is to stay in the background and deal heavy AoE damage that stops enemies in their tracks.

Psychics are able to level up quickly because of their fast-casting skills and high damage. They begin with two single-target skills that they will mainly use throughout their journey, and make their way up to having a heal, a knockback, and the ability to play an offensive or defensive role. During lower levels a lot of buffs and debuffs for psychics may not be as effective due to their lack in Soulforce, which will slowly increase as they level.
Dungeons with a squad at lower levels can be particularly risky due to psychics starting out with high damage, causing them to easily steal aggro when fighting strong monsters or bosses. Unless the psychic is particularly good at staying alive it is recommended to either pursue bosses in White Voodoo or delay attacks to prevent this from happening.
In higher levels psychics can still enjoy high damage but at less risk of taking aggro as other classes typically catch up in attack power, though it can be easier to tank due to high-level equipment available and the usage of defensive skills such as White Voodoo and Psychic Will. The ability to use Psychic Will gives psychics the opportunity to replace barbarians in tanking bosses where usually their attacks are fatal to non-barbarians, as they can on most occasions bypass these attacks with good timing. In many modern dungeons psychics are not as popular as other magic classes such as venomancers or stormbringers due to their lack in debuffs or buffs that benefit the squad, however can still be sought after as effective damage dealers.
Psychics are feared in PvP.
The main purpose of a psychic is repressing enemy skills and options with the variety of effects you can cast on players rendering even key opponents in a battle unable to act freely or effectively. Psychics can also make good use of their AoEs to deal a huge amount of damage to multiple targets if used in the right moments. In a pinch they can use Life Bubble to heal themselves and nearby team members as well. However, they usually have a low physical defense, which keeps them running from physical attackers.
