Tough Kineticist (Apath)
|Unofficial rules compendium|
The tough kineticist was brought up in the way of the body. A tough upbringing and innumerable skirmishes have made him a warrior of unmatched resilience. His body has a sheen of his chosen element.
This is a martial arts archetype.
Hit Die: d8.
The tough kineticist has all the class abilities of the kineticist, except as noted below.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency
A tough kineticist is proficient with all simple weapons but not with any shields or armor.
Way of the Body Armor Bonus (Ex)
As long as he is not wearing any armor, a tough kineticist gains a circumstance bonus to natural armor equal to his Constitution bonus. He can use shields normally and the bonus stacks with both natural armor and with enchantment bonuses to natural armor.
Note that temporary Constitution modifiers, such as those from bear's endurance, do not increase the armor class bonus from this ability.
This ability replaces the elemental defense ability a kineticist gains at level 2. The tough kineticist can still learn the elemental defense of her primary element by choosing the expanded defense utility wild talent.
