A shaman with this totem calls upon the proud lion, imposing and majestic, the mighty leader of deadly hunters.
At 2nd level, a lion shaman may adopt an aspect of the lion while retaining her normal form. This ability functions as the bear shaman ability, but the druid may select from the following bonuses:
- movement (+20 enhancement bonus to land speed)
- senses (low-light vision, scent)
- natural weapons (bite [1d4], 2 claws [1d4] for a Medium druid, rake, +2 CMB to grapple).
While using totem transformation, the lion shaman may speak normally and can cast speak with animals (felines only) at will.
At 5th level, a lion shaman may cast summon nature’s ally as a standard action when summoning felines, and these summoned creatures gain temporary hit points equal to her druid level. This ability otherwise functions as the bear shaman ability.
This ability replaces a thousand faces.
At 6th level, a lion shaman’s wild shape ability functions at her druid level – 2. If she takes on the form of a feline, she instead uses her druid level + 2.
At 9th level and every 4 levels thereafter, a lion shaman gains one of the following bonus feats: Dodge, Lunge, Improved Iron Will, Iron Will, or Skill Focus (Acrobatics). She must meet the prerequisites for these bonus feats.
This ability replaces venom immunity.
