So, what do you think good picks for Psyshot e.g. in Age of Ascendancy (main campaign)?
Also Gunslingers.

Are there useful racial picks outside of Ogres?

I'm sure Shalore would be a good choice on both, since you're building dexterity. Halfling on gunslinger perhaps and if you really want to, you could go yeek on psyshot and probably do decent.

Skeleton. A good chunk of extra dex from the first racial, as well as strength that will allow you to wear heavier armor without wasting stat points. Bone shield is always useful. And an additional heal later on if you have the generics. The lack of infusions hasn't mattered to me much as a tinker, given the steamtech abilities. Poison immunity is a bonus.

Well, it doesnt look good considering PES+Heroic Infusion.

I haven't used an infusion with any tinker characters in either Embers or AoA and got by. The skills from the theraputics generic cover the same ground. Pain Suppressor Salve substitutes for the Heroism infusion quite effectively, and while it's not quite as ridiculous as ogre with with maxed-out racials, it's as good as you'll see with any normal character. By level 20 or so, a skeleton gunslinger is dealing a considerable amount of ranged damage, so it's less necessary than with a melee-oriented character, and I feel overall the tinker skills are actually more useful than the infusions as you're not nearly as limited by category points- whatever you need is almost always accessible.

Consider that Ogre with PES+2xHeroic Infusion can get +140 stats (for a few turns but that's enough), and you will see the difference.
