Special Abilities

Critical Conflagration (Ex) When a mythic salamander confirms a critical hit, the target and all adjacent creatures takes 3d6 points of fire damage, which bypasses the fire resistance or immunity of non-mythic creatures or which was created by non-mythic spells, items, or effects.

Heat (Ex) A mythic salamander generates so much heat that its mere touch deals an additional 1d6 points of fire damage. A mythic salamander’s metallic weapons also conduct this heat.

Forgebound Regeneration (Su) A mythic salamander gains regeneration 10 that can be suppressed only if it takes damage from a weapon forged by a mythic salamander (including its own weapon) or from a mythic cold effect.

Salamander Strike (Sp) When a mythic salamander confirms a critical hit, as a swift action it may expend one use of its mythic power to use fire snake (caster level 8th, DC 18 Reflex half), or two uses of its mythic power to create a mythic fire snake, as described in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Mythic Adventures. The fire snake must begin in a square occupied by the target. Using this ability does not provoke attacks of opportunity. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Superheated Weapon (Ex) When a creature hits a mythic salamander’s touch Armor Class with a melee weapon, even if the attack roll does not overcome its normal Armor Class, the attacker’s weapon is affected as burning disarm (DC 15). The saving throw is Constitution-based.
