Your planting form is an integral part of your defensive technique.
Benefit: As a move action, you partially transform your body into your planting form, growing roots into the ground to stabilize your body. You gain a +4 racial bonus to your CMD when resisting bullrush, overrun and trip attempts made against you. Because your maneuverability is compromised, you suffer a –4 penalty to Dexterity as long as you retain this partial form. You can dismiss this effect as a free action.
Normal: The planting ability is a complete transformation that takes a standard action to complete.
