Class Skills (2 + Int modifier per level)
All of the following are class features of the Battle Tide Weaver.
Spellcasting: At each level after 1st, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one divine spellcasting class before becoming a Battle Tide Weaver, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Battle Tide Weaving: at 1st level you gain the signature move of the class Battle Tide Weaving this ability lets you as perform a full attack against an enemy and deliver a cure spell into the enemy as part of the full attack but a touch attack is still needed. at 3rd level you can use this 2/day and at 5th 3/day
forceful Heal: and 2nd level you can the ability to send a wave of force through your cure spells, any time you cast a cure spell on a target (including self) you may push the target in any direction 5ft. if this is cast on an unwilling target they get a reflex save with the spells DC to ignore the effect. at 5th level you can push the target 10ft
Charging Heal: at 4th level when you initiate a charge you may cast a cure spell on the target of your charge instead of an attack, you still get the +2 to touch them with said cure spell, and if used with forceful Heal the DC to ignore the effect goes up by 2
Blade and Boon: at the final level you can the ability to manipulate your Battle tide weaving, instead of using the cure on the enemy you may instead use it on yourself or creature adjacent to you.
