Natural Weapon Kineticist build?


Advice


Just theory crafting at this point.

Kinetic Fist wild talent becomes stronger if you have at least 3 natural weapons, because it deals the damage of 1/3 the Kinetic Blast damage dice plus the nat weapons.

But is it worth it to pursue this?

I’ve never done a natural weapon build before, so I’m not sure how strong this will be.

Aasimar for Metallic Wings for two wing attacks, Ring of Rat Fangs for a bite, the variant Aasimar abilities #6 for the two talon attacks, Improved Eldritch Heritage for the Phoenix Bloodline for the Vermillion Wings+ the feat Powerful Wings for two more wing attacks, Helm of the Mammoth Lord for a gore attack, if possible, Dread Wing enchantment full-plate armor for yet another two wing attacks, and Wyvern Cloak for a sting attack.

So I have 11 natural weapons.

Amulet of Might Fists would be a must, obviously.

Is this a good build? Can it be better? Remember, each nat weapon deals 1/3 the damage dice of a Kinetic Blast, so with 11 nat attacks, that is almost the same damage as 4 melee range Kinetic Blasts every turn, but with the addition of the normal damage of the nat weapons, it is even greater.


Does a Conductive Amulet of Mighty Fists work for natural attack kineticists?

Bear in mind that it is not 1/3rd Kinetic Blast damage but rather 1d6 per 3 dice round down, minimum 1d6 with no static damage modifier. So until you are level 11 it only deals +1d6 points of damage unless you use it with composite blasts.

Yes, you can use a Conductive Amulet of Mighty Fists, but only if the blast you are using is a touch attack (Conductive does not work with vs AC blasts).

Yes, but then you multiply that by the number of natural attacks you have, which puts it at a far higher level than just a Kinetic Blast, even without any of the modifiers on the Kinetic Fist damage.

And Conductive also has to be done with a Kinetic Blade, since you can only use melee abilities with melee attack forms, and only ranged abilities with ranged attack forms. Plus can only be done once a round.

It is good, especially if you increase it with Aetheric Boost. Plus with 11 attacks that can discharge it, you are almost guaranteed to get it off.
