Okay Guys stop....

I don't want a Power Stone. I want something that have charges per day. Witch word of order...

In GM Book its say to create such object i take
power lvl * caster lvl * 1 800 /(5-charges per day)
So inertial Armour witch full augmentation will be
9*19*1800/4= 76 950 fo 1 charge per day

You tell me that I should take Armor bonus
13*13*1000= 169 000 (for endles working)
169 000/(5-charges) =169000/4= 42 250 For 1 charge.

The True is?

And how in all of this feet a Skin of Ectoplasmic Armour?
+8AC for only 3 000 gold?
It's from Complete Psionic Item.

The reason people are telling you different things than what is written is because the item crafting rules themselves have a built in clause stating that when pricing a magic item, it's supposed to be priced according to items that already exist if it has parallels. In essence, there is no such thing as an actual pricing "rule", they are guidelines.

The Skin of Ectoplasmic Armor was most recently printed in MIC p.170 taking precedence, it costs 6k, has a restrictive maximum dexterity cap, armor check penalties, spell failure chance, and conflicts with class features requiring no armor, such as a monks. None of those drawbacks apply to a manifestation of the Inertial Armor power.

Basically, the formulas given are explicitly stated to be rough guidelines, and not actual rules.

Which is why nobody would ever want that psychoactive skin now.

I know I wouldn't.

I dare anyone to find a hole in that logic.
