Animal Forms are found exclusively in the Henshin Mystic training.
You emulate a creature of nature in your training.
Way of the Clever Monkey: Like a monkey, no trap in the world can catch you. You gain +1 to your haggle skill and all saves against traps, as well as energy resistance 2. At monk levels 3, 9, and 15, the skill and save bonuses increase by 1 and energy resistance increases by 2.
Way of the Elegant Crane: Like a crane, you strike with precision and elegance. You gain +1 to your Diplomacy skill, and generate 1 additional Ki on critical hits. Your training has left you more fragile than normal, however, and have a -1 penalty to Fortitude saves. At monk levels 3, 9, and 15, these bonuses and penalties increase by 1.
Way of the Faithful Hound: Like a hound, you are ever vigilant and at home amidst the pack. You gain +1 to your Listen skill and a +2 bonus to hit flanked opponents. At monk levels 3, 9, and 15, the bonuses increase by 1.
Way of the Patient Tortoise: Like a tortoise, you are calm at heart and worries wash over you. You gain +1 to your Concentration skill and 5 additional hit points. At monk levels 3, 9, and 15, the skill bonus increases by 1 and hit point bonus increases by 5.
Way of the Tenacious Badger: Like a badger, you are most dangerous when grievously injured. You gain +1 to your Intimidate skill, and whenever you are below 50% health, your passive Ki regeneration is increased by 1 and you deal +0.25[W] additional damage. Your patience has suffered, however, and you generate Ki slower when meditating. At monk levels 3, 9, and 15, the skill bonus increases by 1 and the damage bonus increases by +0.25[W].
You may train in only one Animal Form at a time. Unlike their past incarnations prior to Update 19, the single selection will automatically change to its stronger level as your character reaches the necessary level.
