Pathmaster

There are some psychic warriors who choose to focus their study on a single path, rather than expanding their options. This particular style of psychic warrior gains mastery over their chosen warrior’s path and learns to use the tools at his disposal when others would not.

Advanced Path

At 9th level, the pathmaster gains the Advanced Path feat for his chosen warrior’s path as a bonus feat even if he does not meet the prerequisites. For example, if he chose the archer path, he would get the Advanced Archer Path feat as a bonus feat. If the pathmaster already has the feat, he can instead choose any psionic or combat feat as a bonus feat, but he must still meet any applicaple prerequisites.

This ability replaces secondary path.

Focused Path (Ex)

At 11th level, the pathmaster can take 10 on his path skills even if threatened or under duress. He can alternatively expend his psionic focus to take 15 on the path skill. In addition, at 11th level, he  is treated as a psychic warrior four levels higher for the purposes of his warrior path trance.

This ability replaces the bonus feat normally gained at 11th level.

Empowered Path

At 12th level, the pathmaster adds his Wisdom modifier to his manifester level when manifesting a path power. If he expends his psionic focus when manifesting a path power, the power is  automatically augmented for the manifester level boost (minimum 1), but the pathmaster pays no extra power points for this boost. Instead, the additional power points that would normally be required to augment the power is effectively supplied by expending psionic focus.

This ability replaces twisting paths.

Master Maneuver (Su)

At 15th level, once per day the psychic warrior can activate a high-powered maneuver for his path. As an immediate action, the pathmaster can activate his warrior path maneuver, gaining the benefits of the maneuver and the ability to perform the action normally associated with the maneuver. The pathmaster does not need to expend his psionic focus to activate his maneuver when using this ability. In addition, the pathmaster is treated as four levels higher for the purposes of the maneuver’s benefit. The psychic warrior gains a second daily use of this ability at 18th level.

This ability replaces pathweaving.
