Simply put, do the Path of War Prestige classes receive the ability to swap maneuvers at even initiator levels like the base classes?
It doesn't state it anywhere directly, but it would seem like they would be severely gimped in up-to-date maneuvers known if not.
Back in the Book of 9 swords, I don't believe the Prestige classes had the ability to swap maneuvers.
"Q: Can you switch maneuvers that you know for ones that you don't know?
A: Yes. The crusader, swordsage, and warblade can trade one maneuver known for another at certain levels (see their respective descriptions in the Tome of Battle). (Prestige classes that grant maneuvers can't trade maneuvers known.)"
I think they might have carried the same concept over to Prestige classes in Path of War too, but I'm not certain. What does everyone think?
All of the martial adepts get the ability to swap maneuvers starting at initiator level 4 and then every 2 levels from then on. Let's say you are a multi-class adept or you entered a prestige class and hit an even numbered initiator level (4, 6, etc) but took a level in a class that does not receive maneuver swaps, for instance if you were an 11th level Stalker who took your 12th level in Umbral Blade, or you were a Fighter 1 / Zealot 3 and took your 5th level as a Fighter. Does your Zealot, Warden, Stalker, etc maneuver swap mechanism still kick in?
