Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level)
Fast Movement: A Blink Blade gains increased speed, wearing any armor.
Blink Attack: A Blink Blade can use the feat "Spring Attack" more effectively. He no longer needs a 5ft start to use Spring Attack, and can still use this feet while wearing heavy armor.
Tumbler: A Blink Blade is an avid tumbler, and doesn't invoke attacks of opportunity when tumbling through an enemy square.
Blur: At 4th level, a Blink Blade appears blurry, because of his incredible speed. This grants him a 20% miss chance as long as he isn't flat-footed.
Greater Blink Attack: At 5th level, a Blink Blade increases his expertise in attacking while moving. He can now attack up to 3 times when doing a spring attack.
Greater Dodge: Also at 5th level, a Blink Blade gains a +2 to ac from his "Dodge" Feat. He can also designate multiple targets, as long as they are all with 20ft.
Greater Dexterity: At 5th level a Blink Blade adds half his Blink Blade level to his dexterity, rounded down. A Blink Blade looses this enhancement while wearing heavy armor however.
Greater Tumbler: At 7th level, a Blink Blade no longer invokes attacks of opportunities when tumbling through an enemy square. Instead, he gains an attack of opportunity on a creature when he tumbles through their space. This still counts against the Blink Blade's attacks of opportunity per round.
Greater Blur: At 9th level, a Blink Blade's "Blur" effect increases to 40%.
Perfect Reflexes: At 10th level, a Blink Blade can do double his normal amount of attacks of opportunity each round. This also doubles the amount of attacks of opportunities from the feat "Combat Reflexes".
