Elemental Ki Strikes[edit]

Prerequisites:


Elemental Ki Strikes are four special elemental strikes. They consume 5 ki each. Select one of four attacks that have secondary aftereffects:

Icon Enhancement Eagle Claw Attack.png Eagle Claw Attack: Fire Ki Melee Attack: Your attacks can shatter objects. You strike at weak points in your opponents armor or hide, dealing +2[W] damage and apply four stacks of Armor Destruction. (Each stack reduces Armor Class by 1 and Fortification by 1% for 20 seconds. This effect can stack up to 15 times.)

Icon Enhancement Fists of Iron.png Fists of Iron: Earth Ki Melee Attack: You have imbued your attacks with extra force. Performs a melee attack with +3[W] damage, +1 critical threat range, and +1 Critical Damage Multiplier.

Icon Enhancement Knock on the Sky.png Knock on the Sky: Air Ki Melee Attack: You strike your opponent, deflecting their momentum. Performs a melee attack with +1[W] damage, and your enemy deals 4% less physical damage for 30 seconds. This effect can stack up to 5 times.

Icon Enhancement Unbalancing Strike.png Unbalancing Strike: Water Ki Melee Attack: You have learned several joint strikes. You can attack these weak points of your opponent, dealing +3[w] and throwing them off balance for a short period of time. This reduces their armor class by 2, applies a -10 penalty to their Balance skill, and renders them vulnerable to sneak attacks. A successful Reflex save negates this effect (DC 10 + Half Monk Level + Wisdom modifier + Trip modifiers). The target receives periodic saves to attempt to break free of this effect.
