Benefit: The magus forms a much closer relationship with his weapon. The power turns her weapon almost into an extension of his body. The magus can spend 1 point from her arcane pool as a swift action to reach out into the history of the weapon to learn its secrets, casting her mind back through time and space. For a moment, she literally embodies the weapon’s history and use. Consequently, the magus gains the use of one feat of her choice that directly improves her use of the weapon, such as Weapon Focus or Improved Critical. The magus must meet all of the feat’s prerequisites to gain it; a magus with the black blade class ability uses her magus class level in place of her base attack bonus. The feat remains with her for one minute per magus class level.
