Problems with Mystic
(1).Confirmed by day 2
(2).Can bypass Little Bird and Court Spy with PM
(3).Can anonymously give information to court with Telepathy
(4).Can easily be found out as converted
(5).Game play gets stale
Mystic is confirmed since night 1, their abilities Link Mind and Conduit link 1 or 2 players respectively, confirming that there is a mystic in game. Even if mystic is jailed night 1 they can still use PM the next day to confirm themselves. You could say they could be converted night 1 which still is a possibility but the chances are very slim(1/13), and BD can easily find them out as scum, which leads on to point 4.
A main problem of Throne of lies for a long time is the dreaded “whisper meta”. Although the meta ,and the problem it caused, seemed to have been stopped dead in its tracks, the meta itself has still not been extinguished. Mystic can use Private matters to stop Little Bird and can safely and efficiently find claims without the downsides of whispering to either king or prince.
If mystic decides not to out themselves, whatever the reason, they can still use telepathy to anonymously give information to court without having to out themselves, this ability is too strong, it allows them to gain information without the downside of outing the player, not making them a target for the unseen/cult to convert or kill. If you do not claim you will be outed and unlike prince they won’t have to out themselves in order to get the player lynched.
The problem with mystic getting converted is they can no longer link players, or conduit them, and if the game goes on for a few days you will most likely be exed, besides except for giving all the claims to evils. the abilities of illusionist are useless with mental blur confirming you are converted, and with the nerf on mind warp making it practically useless, and unseen may just want want to kill you.
Once you have all claims of players, and those who refuse to claim or have bad logs are upped or exed by prince, there is not much left to do in games, yes you can still link players and get updated logs, but not much fun comes from it and you will basically be confirmed doing little. You will most likely be selected as king which takes the fun away from stepping.
