For people who didn't know this, Monsters with the schools of Star, Moon and Sun, can't use power pips. Why? Well, there's no Astral Attack spells and they can only use attacks from other schools which doesn't activate their power pips. Then what is the point for them to have it?

To my knowledge all astral school spells are 0 pips (except the mutates). So they really don't need power pips.

I think the power pips are just to intimidate the player.

All sun, star and moon foes have a "natural attack" that will use power pips as they are supposed to do (x2). That is the reason why they can hurt you very badly from the beginning.

If they are high ranking they have more power pip chances. Thats what I know. Like us, we get more power pip chances and the higher rank (level) the higher power pip chances. And elvinlith, you are right.

I was wondering this same thing! I was in an astral dungeon and was wondering to myself, why do they get power pips if they cant even use them? I sometimes want to like, run over there and take their power pips, and be like, "You don't need them anyway! I'll be taking these now, muahaha"

You guys are talking like they completely don't need them. Are you saying all they have are Astral Spells? They have other... Oh, wait, oh, wow, I feel stupid. Nevermind!
