Class Features

Ancestral Guidance (Su): Once per day, you can call upon your ancestors to grant you knowledge and talent beyond your normal aptitudes. To accomplish this, you must spend 1 hour in quiet meditation, starting at dawn. At the end of this hour , you gain a bonus feat selected from the list below; you need not meet the normal requirements for the feat. The feat lasts until dawn of the next day.

Alertness , Blind-Fight , Combat Expertise , Dodge , Great Cleave, Improved Critical (Valenar double scimitar) , Improved Sunder, Improved Trip , Power Attack, Skill Focus (Knowledge [history]), Spring Attack, Stealthy, Weapon Specialization (Valenar double scimitar).

At 3rd level, you can choose two feats from this list upon completing your meditation . At 5th level, you can choose three feats from this list. You can't use this bonus feat to meet any requirements or prerequisites (such as for another feat or a prestige class).

Hero of the Valaes Tairn (Ex): The Valenar have immense respect for those who bond with the spirits of the past. You gain a +5 circumstance bonus on Diplomacy checks made to influence the attitude of a Valenar elf, as well as on Gather Information checks made when interacting with Valenar elves.

Ranger Class Features: If you have ranger levels, your revenant blade levels stack for purposes of determining the abilities of your animal companion. Your revenant blade levels also stack when determining the caster level of your ranger spells, but not when determining spells per day or any other ranger class feature.

Shadow of the Past (Ex): At 2nd level and higher, you add your class level as a competence bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks.

Giant Slayer (Ex): Though the elves of Valenar no longer war with the giants of Xen'drik, the ancestral memories of the champions of the past burn strongly in you. At 4th level, you gain a +4 bonus on Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks when using these skills against giants. You also gain a +4 bonus on weapon damage rolls against giants. You gain the ability to speak Giant (and read and write it, if you are literate) as if you had spent skill points to learn the language.

Legendary Force (Ex): At 5th level, you become a true master of the double scimitar. Through skill and art, you learn to strike with astonishing strength. This ability allows you to treat both ends of the Valenar double scimitar as two-handed weapons, even when you use it as a double weapon. For example, you add 1-1/2 times your Strength bonus on damage rolls with each end of the weapon, and any damage bonus from the Power Attack feat is doubled when used with the weapon.
