Kinetic Blade


Element: universal
Type: form infusion
Level: 1
Burn: 1
Associated Blasts: any
Saving Throw: none
You form a weapon using your kinetic abilities. You create a nonreach, light or one-handed weapon in your hand formed of pure energy or elemental matter. The kinetic blade's shape is purely cosmetic and doesn't affect the damage dice, critical threat range, or critical multiplier of the kinetic blade, nor does it grant the kinetic blade any weapon special features.
You can use this form infusion once as part of an attack action, a charge action, or a full-attack action in order to make melee attacks with your kinetic blade. Since it's part of another action (and isn't an action itself), using this wild talent doesn't provoke any additional attacks of opportunity. The kinetic blade deals your kinetic blast damage on each hit (applying any modifiers to your kinetic blast's damage as normal, but not your Strength modifier). The blade disappears at the end of your turn. The weapon deals the same damage type that your kinetic blast deals, and it interacts with Armor Class and spell resistance as normal for a blast of its type. The kinetic blade doesn't add the damage bonus from elemental overflow.

Kinetic Blade Tips & Notes

  • Kinetic blade can get several attacks per round in melee, based on the Kineticists' Base Attack Bonus (unlike Kinetic Blast at range, which always gets only one attack per round). 
  • Feats that are selected for the Kinetic Blast, like Weapon Focus (Kinetic Blast), or Improved Critical (Kinetic Blast), also apply to the Kinetic Blade, as it is simply a form infusion for the blast.
  • Since it does not apply the strength bonus to damage, only to hit, it does not benefit from feats that add dexterity instead of strength to damage (e.g. Weapon Finesse Mythic). But it does benefit from Weapon Finesse, to use dexterity instead of strength for melee attack rolls.
  • As it is not a real weapon, the damage of Kinetic Blade will not be increased by Enlarge Person (its reach will be increased, however).

      An important note is that despite how it may appear, because the ability states that the blade disappears at the end of your turn, you can't perform attacks of opportunity with it.
