Here's this idea:

The shifter has been shunned. Driven out of most lands by the pogroms of the Silver Flame, to whom she lost both mother and father, she has retreated to the Eldeen Reach. Even here, she finds herself a pariah among her own kind, for she shows powers and abilities that do not seem natural to them, powers to make her self, her claws in particular, weapons of great power. Leaving her natural home, she makes her way to the only place she knows she might find a home: Sharn. As long as she can steer clear of the Silver Flames, she just might be ok. Of course, since she did kill the three of them responsible for her parent's deaths just before she left the Eldeen Reaches, they might be actively looking for her. They're touchy about that kinda stuff.

3) Shifter Warmind
(if it has a * before it, it is a psionic power)

Str 14 Dex 16 Con 14 Int 10 Wis 14 Cha 6

Razorclaw Shifter trait

1st Psychic Warrior - Shifter Multiattack, Weapon Focus(claw) *Metaphyscial Claw
2nd Psychic Warrior - Power Attack *Claws of the Beast
3rd Psychic Warrior - Healing Factor *Expansion

Ok, so while normally wielding something like a short sword, fighting when shifting will be 1d4 + 3 damage. Base speed 30 ft. While powered up with things like Metaphysical Claw, Expansion, Claws of the Beast, shifting, power attack, etc. The damage will be 1d8 + 8. She can shift twice per day for 7 rounds each. Progression as follows:

4th Psychic Warrior - *Dissolving Touch (+1 Str)
5th Psychic Warrior - Speed of Thought, *Psionic Lion's Charge
6th Warmind - Great Rend, Chain of Personal Superiority +2, *Catfall
7th Warmind - Chain of Defensive Posture +2, *Vigor
8th Warmind - Enduring Body(DR 1/-) (+1Str)
9th Warmind - Extra Shifter Trait(Longstrider), *Animal Affinity
10th Warmind - Sweeping Strike
11th Warmind - Enduring Body (DR 2/-), *Claws of the Vampire
12th Warmind - Longstrider Elite, Chain of Personal Superiority +4 (+1 Str)

So, at 12th, this guy can shift 3 times a day for 10 rounds each. When shifting and focused, speed 60 ft. With the same buffs as before, plus Dissolving Touch, claws of the Vamp, etc, she can do 6d6 + 24 if full power attacking, doing an additional 1d4 + 2 if she hits once with each claw, and gaining half the base damage she deals as healing. The one big probelm with this build is that the Warmind levels do not stack with the Psychic Warrior levels for the purposes of determining Manifester level. which means I can only blow up to 6 PSPs in one shot. Which kinda sucks. the alternative would be to go all Psychic Warrior, which would look like this(starting at 6th, when it deviates)

6th Psychic Warrior - Shifter Defense, * Animal Affinity
7th Psychic Warrior - *Claws of the Vampire
8th Psychic Warrior - Psionic Fist, *Duodimensional Claws (+1 Str)
9th Psychic Warrior - Extra Shifter Trait(Longstrider), *Ubiquitous Vision
10th Psychic Warrior - *Claws of Energy
11th Psychic Warrior - Quicken Power, *Dimension Door
12th Psychic Warrior - Greater Shifter Defense, *Freedom of Movement, Psionic (+1 Str)

In which case, the character would be shift just the same, except that while shifting would have DR 4/silver. Normal claw attacks are 1d4 + 7. Claws when fully souped would do 11d6 + 24(for one attack, after which they would be 7d6 +24) while Power attacking. When shifting and focused, movment is 50 ft.

So there's that gal.

OK, so, I thought about it, and I am totally not going Warmind with this guy. It is much better to go straight PsyWar. This is one of the guys I really like. However, I have realized I can't do as much damage as I thought I could. You see, my claws would not be one-handed weapon sized, hence I could not power attack with them. So... what should I do instead of power attack?

Instead of Power Attack, take Track and pray we run into an Illithid ASAP. Go Illithid Slayer. Full BAB, 9/10 manifester levels, awesome abilities = cool, cool PrC. Then again, straight PsyWar is also very strong.

By the way Nullex, your signature is f-ing hilarious. I laughed my ass off the first time I read it.
