Aether Utility Talents

Aetheric Adaptability

Element(s) aether; Type utility (Su); Level 1; Burn

When using aether blasts or composite blasts that include aether, you can chose to treat your blast as two different damage types instead of just one (so a blast could be bludgeoning and slashing, bludgeoning and piercing, or piercing and slashing.)

Aetheric Sniper

Element(s) aether; Level 3; Type utility (Su); Burn -
Prerequisite(s) telekinetic invisibilityOA

When using your kinetic blast while under the effects of your telekinetic invisibilityOA wild talent, you can remain invisible for 1 additional round before your invisibility ends. When sniping while invisible, you only suffer a -10 to your stealth roll instead of -20.

Aetheric Tempering

Prerequisite(s) basic corpokinesis and dimensional rip or the dimensional tear class feature
Saving Throw Fortitude negates or half (see text); Spell Resistance no

You are able to create a dimensional tear inside of a corporeal creature (except for constructs), using it as though it was a dimensional tear of the creature’s size. The creature is allowed a Fortitude save to negate being treated as a tear, and if you choose to have a kinetic blast exit through a corporeal tear, the creature is made into the target and is the only creature affected by it, regardless of any infusion applied to the blast. If a creature chooses to exit through a corporeal tear, they can decide to deal damage equal to twice the kineticist’s level to the creature (Fortitude for half), although a creature forced to exit through a tear always deals damage.

Prerequisite(s) dimensional rip or dimensional tear class feature
Saving Throw Reflex negates; Spell Resistance no

You are capable of laying a tear across a solid surface, disguising it as normal terrain. If a creature steps into your deceptive rip, they are transported to another tear of your choice.

Dual Telekinetic Control

Element(s) aether; Level 1; Type utility (Su); Burn

You can choose to gain this wild talent in place of basic telekinesisOA.

Elemental Eater

Element(s) aether, air, fire, poison, sound, void, or water; Type utility (Sp); Level 7; Burn 1

Whenever you would receive acid, cold, electricity, fire, force, negative, or sonic damage, as an immediate action you can instead choose to absorb the element, negating the damage from it and gaining a number of temporary hit points equal to half the damage you would have taken (if the effect allowed for a saving throw, you are treated as having failed it for the purpose of how much damage you absorb) that last until you recover burn or until depleted. You must select 1 element for this, and the element you are capable of absorbing depend on which elemental focus or expanded element class features you possess:

  • Aether: force
  • Air: electric
  • Fire: fire
  • Poison: acid
  • Sound: sonic
  • Void: negative
  • Water: cold

As a swift action, you can reduce the temporary hit points gained from this ability by 15 to reduce the burn cost of an infusion by 1. Temporary hit points gained from this ability stack with those gained from other wild talents, but cannot be used to lower the cost of an infusion.

As long as your force ward is active you receive a shield bonus to AC equal to +1 for each empty hand you have, up to a maximum of +3; at 16th level this increases to +2 per hand and a maximum of +6. Hands being used for kinetic blasts are not considered empty for this purpose, removing their part of the bonus until your next turn. In addition, so long as this talent is providing a shield bonus, you are treated as if you were using a shield with the jarring quality, using this wild talent’s DC instead.

Friend Throw

Prerequisite(s) telekinetic haul

As a standard action, you can charge a single manufactured weapon with the power of an energy kinetic blast you possess with a touch. For 1 round, the affected weapon deals an additional 1d6 damage of the blast’s type; this damage does not stack with weapon properties that deal additional energy damage of the same type (such as electric blast on a shock weapon). If you select an energy blast that deals two types of damage, the weapon instead deals an additional 1d3 of each type, and if the blast deals three types of damage, the weapon instead deals an additional 1d2 of each type. Force, sonic, and untyped damage is reduced by one step in all cases (to 1d4, 1d2, or 1, respectively), and untyped damage is always nonlethal. You can accept 1 additional point of burn to have this effect last 1 round plus 1 for every 3 kineticist levels you possess (minimum 2 rounds, up to 7 rounds at 18th level). Blasts that deal more than three types of damage cannot be selected in this way.

You count as humanoid with a subtype of your choice or as outsider (native) for the purpose of how spells and abilities affect you (though options are at GM discretion) and can change your alignment to any one of your choosing at the time this wild talent is gained, but retain your undead type (as well as any decomposition you suffered during your undeath) permanently, being treated as a positive energy powered undead. You lose all of your undead traits except for immunity to bleed, disease, and sleep, and you do not need to breathe, eat, or sleep. You are healed by both positive and negative energy. If you had no Intelligence score before taking this wild talent, you gain 2d6+6 Intelligence. You do not gain a Constitution score if you didn’t have one, instead using your Charisma in its place to calculate your hit points, Fortitude save, and any abilities to which Constitution would normally apply (such as kinetic blast damage); if you did have a Constitution score, you still use it as normal.

You can choose to gain this wild talent in place of basic neurokinesis or basic telekinesis, but can only gain it at 1st character level and cannot replace it in any way once it is gained.

Lingering Energy

Element(s) aether, air, fire, mind, void, or water; Level 5; Type utility (Sp); Burn 1
Prerequisite(s) any energy blast

As an immediate action when you reduce a creature’s hit points to 0 or lower with an energy kinetic blast, you can have your blast’s energy linger around them until the end of your next turn. During that time, the next creature that touches it is treated as if it was hit by the same kinetic blast (without form infusions applied), receiving a Reflex save to avoid the blast outright as well as a +5 bonus to saves against any infusions that were applied to that blast if it hits them. This wild talent can only affect one creature at a time.

Prerequisite(s) distorted area

Raising up your foot, you can slam it back down onto the ground as a move action to make a trip attempt that does not provoke an attack of opportunity against all squares adjacent to you, substituting your Constitution modifier for your Strength modifier.

If you possess the friend throw utility wild talent, you do not need to accept 1 burn to allow your ally to make an attack at the end of their movement.
