You have learned to control your mind blade for maximum impact in battle.
Prerequisites: Kalashtar, base attack bonus +4, ability to generate a mind blade.
Benefit: The Kalashtar Thoughtshifter feat enables the use of three tactical maneuvers.
Burrowing Blade: To use this maneuver, you must make a full attack with your mind blade against an opponent using a shield. In the following round, you can spend 1 power point as a swift action to allow your next mind blade attack against that opponent to ignore the shield’s bonus to AC.
Nemesis: To use this maneuver, you must make at least one melee attack with your mind blade each round against the same opponent for 2 consecutive rounds. In the following round, you can spend 1 power point as a move action to adapt your weapon to the target, receiving a +1 insight bonus on melee attack rolls and weapon damage rolls made against that opponent with your mind blade. However, you take a –1 penalty on attack rolls and weapon damage rolls made with your mind blade against any other creature. This effect lasts until you restore the balance of your blade (a move action).
Shifting Blade: To use this maneuver, you must make a melee attack with your mind blade against a specific foe. On a melee attack against the same foe in the next round, you can spend 1 power point as a swift action to change the shape of your mind blade in mid-blow, altering the damage type of the weapon (piercing, bludgeoning, or slashing) until the start of your next turn.
