I think the most effective way to use Auspex or Potence is by not raising Perception or Strength respectively.

The disciplines alone increase those stats, so if you invest in both the stats as well as the disciplines then you're wasting points. I run my main toreador with points in perception but I don't raise Auspex, I can still use the latter but for gunfights I depend on Celerity and my own natural perception; it's one way you can play it, for example.


That's an excellent idea.  For all of my characters who used Auspex, I always raised firearms and perspective to 4.  My current character is a Gangrel and they have Fortitude which raises your soak levels by 1,2,3,4,5 points, and they also have Protean which at rank 2 and 3 raise your stamina.  I raised my Stamina to level 3.  I also raised my Unarmed and Brawl to 3 even though I can use Bloodbuff.


But for my next character which will be a dickish Ventrue.  I will do as you say and not waste points.

I forgot about the gun aspect.  I think I did use it with sniper weapons to slow down the aim movement.  I think, anyway.

I probably missed something (I often do) - Auspex for me was not very useful other then to make hacking easier.  The rest was (to me) a cool but useless idea.  So, I am curious what you found it so useful for so I can experiment along that line the next time I play. 
Auspex loses value over time, as you get to know the game more and more (also, the "sneaking detector" gives a good approximation of position and distance of the closest enemy, which probably doesn't help), but the first few times it can be very nice to have it available, and it's good in a pinch if you really need that extra awareness, as well as for the extra utility for ranged and hacking. Of course, it also depends on build and playstyle.
