Improved Elemental Affinity [Special][edit]

Gain Major Bends; Elemental features.
The man swung his hand out over the grass and it withered in a great swath, its stolen moisture floating up to form a whip in his hand.
Prerequisite(s): Ability to speak either: Auran, Aquan, Ignan or Terran; Minor Elemental Affinity, Elemental Affinity
Description: While transformed, your ability to manipulate your chosen elements (Air, Earth, Fire or Water) improves. When you gain this Alteration, you choose one element for which you possess the Minor Elemental Affinity and Elemental Affinity Alterations. When you change your readied spells, you choose 1 Major Bend from the class list matching your Minor Elemental Affinity. While transformed, you can use this Major Bend at will, just like your spells. You may gain an additional Major Bend from that class list for every 7 Grim class levels you possess. The Saving Throw DC for all Bends is equal to 10 + 1/2 your class level + your Wisdom modifier. Additionally, you gain one of the following, based on the element you chose for this Alteration.
  • Air: While transformed, you no longer need to breathe and are immune to effects that require inhalation.
  • Fire: While transformed, your Burn ability improves. A target struck with your unarmed attack or striking you in melee must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + /2 class level + Wisdom modifier) or catch fire for 1d4 rounds. Putting out the fire is a move action.
  • Water: While transformed, you gain the Drench ability of a Water Elemental, using your class level for the cast level of the dispel.
Special: This Alteration can be taken more than once. Each time, it applies to a new element, and thus can be taken a maximum of four times. When you gain this Alteration any time after the first, you cannot choose the opposing element of the element you previously chose - So if you chose Fire the first time, you could only choose Air or Earth the second time, not Water.
