Was playing in a game some time ago where PoW was allowed, decided to make a trip build, and after running the numbers it turned out that barbarian with a 2 level fighter dip was the best class for it although bloodrager was a heavy contenderbetter than both Wardens and Warlords.
Additionally, fortification-like boosts, Psicrystal Affinity and similar options can be found here. But outstripping regular martial classes by a vast margin? How to rate this, then?
As provided, though, the discipline is also highly interesting, with more than one maneuver offering wildly diverging in effects beyond just switching the respective energy damage types — and ultimately, I found myself enjoying this component most about elemental flux: If you like Path of War, then you absolutely need to get this book.

Animus Adept – Here! The Mystic, before her first turn, determines 2 maneuvers, which are immediately accessible to her; thereafter, at the end of each of her turns, she gains one randomly determined maneuver from those of her readied maneuvers, unlocking this one for the remainder of the combat.
This is, as a book, better in every way than the first one. WIS to attack and damage This is just having a bigger will save and perception score than normal. Duration reduced to 1 round.

High-level combat is 8th level spells, characterized by what we call “rocket-tag” where combats can easily be ;ress or at least heavily swayed dreamscarrde less than a round, and stuff like plane shift is common among both allies and enemies, by sheer design of the system.
Also people forget that martials have equipment too that they must maintain and keep to be useful. Mystics are the only initiator that can craft magic items without spending a feat on Master Craftsman. While you maintain this stance, allies within 30 feet of you also gain the benefits of the chosen effect for as long as it is affecting you.
And if so, will we get Unquiet Grave style feats? Just call me Dusk. They have an aura and gain limited access to inquisitions or war-priest blessings at level -2, with minor powers unlocked at 3rd, major powers at 13th level.

At its basic roots, the Path of War allows for martially-inclined characters to harness new abilities to aid them in combat. If you add extra feats like psicrystal focus, you’re adding a bunch of extra feats on a melee class that simply does not get bonus feats.
Table of Contents for the project: The stamina system itself is dfeamscarred in the deamscarred way that maneuvers are with rest. Like an idiot, I let one player run a Warden without having my normal optimizing long-term rules lawyer player take a look at the class first.

As a reviewer, my official verdict, ultimately, will be smack in the middle — at 4. Which means my official verdict rounds up to 5. What is pathfinder about then?
Doesn’t feel fitting for the theme though, but that’s probably just me.
