Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the elemental fighter.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Elemental Warrior gain proficiency with all simple and martial weapons, as well as the bastard sword. It is also proficient with light armor. Also all shields excluding tower shields


Elemental Strike (Sp): Because of his devotion to elementals, an elemental warrior is gifted with the ability to generate a spinning vortex around his weapon (blade or bolt/arrow) that is made up of one of the five elements. Water, fire, earth, electricity and air. You must select your element when creating your character. On a successful critical hit, the weapon deals ×3 damage instead of ×2, (or ×4 damage instead of ×3, if the weapon already deals ×4, it stay the same).


Combat Style (Ex): At 3rd level, an Elemental Warrior must select one of two combat styles to pursue: archery or two-weapon combat. This choice affects the character’s class features but does not restrict his selection of feats or special abilities in any way.

If the Elemental Warrior selects archery, he is treated as having the Rapid Shot feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

If the Elemental Warrior selects two-weapon combat, he is treated as having the Two-Weapon Fighting feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

The benefits of the Elemental Warrior chosen style apply only when he wears light or no armor. He loses all benefits of his combat style when wearing medium or heavy armor.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Starting at 7th level, a Elemental Warrior can react to danger before her senses would normally allow her to do so. She retains her Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if she is caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, she still loses her Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized.


Improved Combat Style (Ex): At 11th level, a Elemental Warrior's aptitude in his chosen combat style (archery or two-weapon combat) improves. If he selected archery at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Manyshot feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

If the Elemental Warrior selected two-weapon combat at 3rd level, he is treated as having the Improved Two-Weapon Fighting feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

As before, the benefits of the Elemental Warrior's style only applies when he wears light or no armor. He loses all benefits of his combat style when wearing medium or heavy armor.


Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex): A Elemental Warrior of 15th level or higher can no longer be flanked. This defense denies another Elemental Warrior the ability to sneak attack the character by flanking her, unless the attacker has at least four more rogue levels than the target does.

If a character already has uncanny dodge (see above) from a second class, the character automatically gains improved uncanny dodge instead, and the levels from the classes that grant uncanny dodge stack to determine the minimum Elemental Warrior level required to flank the character.


Combat Style Mastery (Ex): At 19th level, a Elemental Warrior's aptitude in his chosen combat style (archery or two-weapon combat) improves. If he selected archery at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Improved Precise Shot feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

If the Elemental Warrior selected two-weapon combat at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Greater Two-Weapon Fighting feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

As before, the benefits of the Elemental Warrior's style only applies when he wears light or no armor. He loses all benefits of his combat style when wearing medium or heavy armor.
