Xaosmiths are practitioners of the primordial crafting arts that were onceused to create the World. Using a portion of the Elemental Chaos, called achaos node, to extend their reach, they use their powers of creation to forgeor repair equipment in the heat of battle, or to enhance their weapon strikeswith elemental power.
XAOSMITH CLASS FEATURES
All xaosmiths have the form chaos node, elemental modification, and
xaosmith’s guarantee powers, and an elemental craft. Each xaosmith also hasa xaosmith’s retribution, xaosmith’s indignation, and elemental resonance
power determined by their choice of elemental craft.
Chaos Node
The most potent secret of your training as a xaosmith is the creation of achaos node, a mote of the Elemental Chaos that can take on an impression of the weapon you wield, allowing you to make attacks at a distance through it.
Form Chaos Node
Xaosmith Feature
You open a tiny conduit to the Element al Chaos and pull a volatile mote of matter from it, and then forge a link between it, yourself, and your weapon.
At-Will * Elemental, ConjurationMinor Action Close
burst 5
 Requirement:
Your chaos node must not be present.
 Effect:
You conjure your chaos node in your square
, an ally’s
square, or anunoccupied square in the burst. The chaos node lasts until you fallunconscious or dismiss it as a minor action. The chaos node occupies thesame space as a tiny creature. When you take a move action, you can alsomove the chaos node a number of squares equal to your speed.The chaos node can be targeted by melee or ranged attacks, but it does nothave hit points. If a single attack deals damage to the chaos node equal to 10+ one half your level or more, the chaos node disappears, and you takedamage equal to 5 + one half your level. Otherwise, the chaos node isunaffected.
Elemental Modification
The great advantage that xaosmiths have over all other crafters is theirability to change their chaos node and their tools into elemental matter orenergy, bypassing the need for a forge or kiln or etching materials. Incombat, they can use this same technique to
target an opponent’s weak
ness.However, the process requires some concentration, and can only bemaintained with effort.
 
Elemental Modification
Xaosmith Feature
You usher a fraction of the Elemental Chaos into your weapon, allowing youto change its substance for a time.

Xaosmith’s Guarantee
 
More than a simple threat, the xaosmith’s guarantee is a
current of elemental energy that links you and your chaos node to your enemies andhelps you anticipate their movements and find openings in their defenses.
Xaosmith’s Guarantee
