This replaces the bonus feat normally gained at 1st level.
A 1st level nimble blade gains the Mind Blade Finesse blade skill. This replaces proficiency with shields and medium armor.
A 2nd level nimble blade gains the Piranha Strike feat as a bonus feat.
This replaces the blade skill normally gained at 2nd level.
A nimble blade of 7th level treats her mind blade as if it had the agile weapon special ability. This does not count toward the nimble blade’s mind blade’s enhancement bonus.
This replaces the mind blade enhancement increase gained at 7th level.
Once a nimble blade has reached 10th level, she has learned how to rapidly alter her use of the mind blade to adapt to any particular situation. As an immediate action and by expending psionic focus, the nimble blade can select any one blade skill whose requirements she meets and be treated as having that blade skill. The effect of the blade skill selected lasts until she expends her psionic focus as an immediate action to change it.
This replaces the blade skill normally gained at 10th level.
