Robots don't really have minds, so your mind-affecting skills wouldn't normally work on them. Electronic understanding allows you to tap into the mind equivalent in electronic machines. This is moderately effective against electronic robots, but does not work particularly well against more advanced positronic robots.
- Allows Mind Jab and Psionic Blast to damage Robots to some extent.
- Electronic Robots take 50% + 5*S% of the original damage, where S is the number of skill points invested.
- Positronic Robots take 10% + S% of the original damage.
- Prior to the introduction of skill points, damage was 100% to Electronic Robots, and none to Positronic ones.
