Simple question: Can you fire a Kinetic Blast or Gather Power while Raging?
I've just been thinking over things to combine with Kineticist as a way to pass the work hours and Barbarian and the idea of going all RAAAAAAWR!!! and bursting into flames and firing off Raging flame bolts fun. Yeah Rage wont help the Blast's damage or anything, but that's not really the point. I'm pretty damn sure Gather Power falls under "any ability that requires patience or concentration" but it's thematically pretty cool with the whole manifesting elements part of it but I'm not as SURE about Kinetic Blast. Kinda just strikes me as a fire and forget thing you just kinda do. I could just be ignoring obvious things that stop it since I like the idea and want it to work... oh well.
Free action Rage > Full Action Gather Power > 6 months of filler arc > Pyrokinetic Blast + Explosion + Empower = good times
Hmmmmmm... I didn't even know Mad Magic was a thing... need Calm Stance and Perfect Clarity... "the barbarian doesn't gain any benefits from Rage other than the temporary hit points", does that include Rage powers or just the basic Rage package? Like, are you still Raging, thus fulfilling the "A barbarian gains the benefits of rage powers only while raging" criteria?

I expected this thread to be about the chakras introduced in occult adventures. Hmm a barbarian might be good at that...
Nah, wouldn't waste my breath on a system that is complete garbage. I'd love to go all "Rock Lee" on someone (Naruto for those not familiar), but as it stands that entire section in the book isn't worth wrapping a fish in...
On topic: I just like the raging elemental display of it all, and with Clarity Stance turning off all the unneeded bits and still granting the Temp HP s, this seems like something that could be fun, more so for a class that really likes to remove it's own HPs...
Side note: I don't typically build characters based on anime, but it's an easy reference when trying to describe a similar end result as anime covers quite a wide variety of possible ideas.
Mad Magic and Bloodrager works.
Pretty sure the best way to do this is with Barbarian. Bloodrage + Mad Magic is nice but I can't Gather Power as it's not a spell or spell-like. Clarity Stance/Moment of Clarity + Mad Magic removals all penalties of the Rage so I could still Gather Power... it's a higher feat/multiclass investment, but seems to pan out better... I think xD
