Skirmishing Scout

For a skirmishing scout, combat is a tactical experience. People are simply pieces on a game board to them, allowing their keen intellect to pick apart their foes weaknesses and leave no survivors. Skirmishing scouts are adept in leaving foes no chance of survival, having long since mastered the game of combat.

Tactical Eyes (Ex): The skirmishing scout gains the Scout sphere as a bonus sphere and she does not take a -5 penalty while using a Perception check with its ability. If she already possesses the Scout sphere, she instead gains a Scout talent of her choice. She also gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat.

This ability replaces bare knuckles.

Agile AC Bonus (Ex): A skirmishing scout only benefits from her AC bonus class feature whenever she moves 10 or more ft. during her round, gaining this bonus until the beginning of her next turn.

Vital Insight (Ex): At 1st level, whenever a skirmishing scout successfully identifies a creature with the scout ability from the Scout sphere, she gains a +1 circumstance bonus to attack rolls against the analyzed creature. At 5th level and every four levels afterwards, this bonus increases by +1 (to a maximum of +5 at 17th level).

This ability replaces the fiery offense tension technique.

Educated Strike (Ex): At 1st level, a skirmishing scout gains the following tension technique:

2 Tension

  • Targeted Punishment: Whenever the skirmishing scout deals damage to a creature whom they have analyzed, she may spend a swift action to deal additional damage equal to 1/2 her striker level + her practitioner modifier

This ability replaces rapid pummel.

Skirmishing Striker Art (Ex): Beginning at 2nd level, a skirmishing scout may select any of the following striker arts:

  • Instant Punishment: The skirmishing scout may use her targeted punishment tension technique as a free action, even if it is not her turn.
  • Instant Scout: The skirmishing scout may spend 1 tension as a free action to use her Scout sphere ability as a free action.

Genius Strike (Ex): At 7th level, whenever a skirmishing scout uses her targeted punishment technique, she may spend 1 additional tension to instead deal damage equal to her striker level + her practitioner modifier.

This ability replaces pummeling punishment.
