You cannot use the Ready action on any power that has an activation time/cost (i.e., anything that you have to “turn on”).
Additional Comp: Slower Activation
Value: 3CP per rank
The activation time for one of your powers (player’s choice) increases by one step on the following scale:
- free/swift action
- move action
- standard action
- full-round action
- 1 round
For example, if your activation time were normally a standard action, this Comp would turn it into a full-round action. If it’s normally a swift action, this Comp turns it into a move action.
You must have at least one power with an activation time of at least a swift action to take Slower Activation. You can take this Additional Comp multiple times. Each time, it either applies to a new power (player’s choice) or it increases the activation time by one step. You can apply this Comp to Mystic Spell-Casting and Psionic Manifestation, in which case it applies to individual spells or psi-powers.
