What is the difference between tech and biotic powers?

1 replies 362 views Edited Mar 6, 2011

I haven't quite figured this out yet. One of the loading screen tips encourages me to select a team with balanced biotic and tech powers. What would be an example of this? Thanks in advance.

tech powers are from an omni tool. squad members w/ tech are: Mordin, Tali, Kasumi and Legion (Shep class engineer and infiltrator are pure tech)

power examples:

AI hacking

Cryo blast

Incinerate

Overload

drone

cloak

Biotic powers are created by the user and all involve creating a mass effect field of some nature. squad that are biotic: Jack, Samara and Jacob (Shep class Adept and Vanguard are pure biotic)

Power examples:

Pull

Throw

Singularity

Warp

Charge

Shockwave

Sentinels are a mix of tech and biotic (Miranda is a Sentinel).

Mixing Biotics and techs is fine but it may be wiser to use a pure fighters (grunt, Zaeed, Garrus and Thane) with either a biotic or tech expert until you can level up some powers.
