Canny Defense (Ex)

When wearing no armor, a canny occultist adds her Intelligence bonus as a dodge bonus to CMD and Armor Class while wielding a melee weapon. If a canny occultist is caught unarmed or is flat-footed or otherwise denied her Dexterity bonus, she also loses this bonus. A canny occultist with the Improved Unarmed Combat feat is never considered unarmed. This replaces the occultist trick from level 1.
