Reason: Just finished with grammer jobs and many else - I would be most gracious to have this subclass reviewed. I'm pretty sure there must be some balancing issues, but I can't exactly tell which.

Path of Yin and Yang[edit]

The path of the Yin and Yang is an ancient way of fighting where you sharpen your senses and your body.

Yin and Yang

At 3rd level, you gain the ability to sharpen your mind and body. Choose two skills that you are proficient in. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses either of the chosen skills.

Additionally, you learn the ancient technique of Yin and Yang. As a bonus action, you can spend 1 ki to gain a +1 bonus to the attack roll and damage roll when you make an unarmed strike or monk weapon attack. This effect lasts until the start of your next turn.

When you reach 6th level, you can spend up to 2 ki to gain a bonus to the attack roll and damage roll equal to the number of ki spent. You can spend up to 3 ki starting at 11th level, and 4 ki at 17th level.

Body and Soul

When you reach 6th level, you gain proficiency in the Perception check. If you already have proficiency in the skill, your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make with Perception skill.

Additionally, instead of sleeping, you can meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.

Finally, when you finish a short rest, you can regain hit points equal to your monk level. Once you use this feature, you cannot use it again until you finish a long rest.

Divine Body

Starting at 11th level, as a bonus action, you can spend 1 or 2 ki to cover your feet with the power of Yin and Yang. Until the start of your next turn, your walking speed is increased by 10 feet. If you spend 2 ki, you are also under the effect of the blur spell for the duration.

Additionally, you can spend 2 ki to cast either darkness or silence spell, without providing material components.

Perfect Body

At 17th level, you can combine the power of Yin and Yang to create an aura that radiates shade of black and white. As (a bonus action?), you can spend 5 ki to manifest this aura. While you are in the aura, you gain a +3 bonus to AC, a +2 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls, and your walking speed is increased by 20 feet. The aura lasts for 15 minutes. (Duration increases by 3 minutes for each ki spent?)

Once you use this feature, you must finish a long rest before you can use it again.

NOTE

Every Ki point that is Locked Because of your Ying yang aura needs at least 6 Hours of Medetating (resting) to restore. This bonus drops to 3 Hours if you turn level 6 Thanks of the Trance. There is no other way of regaining these Ki Points.
