Proficiencies: All armor, weapons and shields.

AC Bonus: As the monk/ninja class feature. A Warrior adds his Wisdom modifier to AC, +1 per five class levels.

Aura: The power of a warrior's aura (as detected by detect evil and similar spells) is equal to his Warrior level.

Bonus Feats: A Warrior gains a bonus feat from the fighter list at every class level. His effective fighter level is equal to his Warrior level. He must meet the prerequisites as normal.

Flurry of blows: As the monk class feature, except that a mind blade always counts as a monk weapon.

Mind Blade: As the soulknife class feature, except that it is magical rather than psionic and can be drawn as a free action. A Warrior chooses one form for his mind blade at 1st level, which can be any melee or ranged weapon. This weapon uses the monk's unarmed strike progression to determine its base damage. For every size the chosen weapon's normal damage is larger or smaller than 1d6, it deals damage as an unarmed strike of one size larger or smaller. At every even class level it gains a +1 enhancement bonus or equivalent enchantments.

Smite: As the samurai class feature (+Cha atk/dmg) with the paladin's uses per day, except that if he smites a creature of opposing alignment it takes additional damage equal to his class level (True Neutral characters gain this bonus against creatures with no Neutral component in their alignment).

Spells: A Warrior can cast spells as a healer, drawing from the healer and paladin lists. He uses Intelligence as his primary spellcasting stat.

Throw Mind Blade: As the soulknife class feature. If his mind blade is a ranged weapon, he instead takes only a -1 attack penalty for each range increment.

Shape Mind Blade: At 5th level a Warrior can summon two copies of his mind blade at once, or a single copy with an enhancement bonus 1 higher than normal.

Ki Abilities (Su): The following require expenditure of a spell slot of the listed level or higher in order to use (and do not otherwise have any restrictions on number of uses). If the ability allows a save, its DC is based on Wis and using a spell slot higher than required increases the save DC by +1 for each additional level.
1st: Fighting challenge, Ghost step
2nd: Ki dodge, Test of mettle
3rd: Call to battle, Ghost strike
4th: Abundant step, Daunting challenge
5th: Bond of loyalty, Quivering palm
6th: Empty body, Loyal beyond death

Perfect Self: As the monk ability, except that he gains DR 10/epic.

Quote from: Alternate
Remove "Mind Blade" at 1st level.

Mind Blade: At 2nd level and higher a Warrior may treat any weapon he wields as a mind blade, but only one weapon at a time. This functions as the soulknife class feature, except that it is magical rather than psionic. The weapon uses the monk's unarmed strike progression to determine its base damage. For every size the weapon's normal damage is larger or smaller than 1d6, it deals damage as an unarmed strike of one size larger or smaller. At every even class level it gains a +1 enhancement bonus or equivalent enchantments. This ability replaces the weapon's normal enchantments while it is active.

Shape Mind Blade: At 5th level a Warrior may apply the benefits of Mind Blade to multiple weapons at a time, or increase the enhancement bonus granted to a single weapon by 1.

Looks like a nice Tier 3   :clap

Does he get Paladin spells early? (As per the healer progression)

How does smite work if the character is true neutral?

I might actually use this and reflavor it as Elite Guard, to "protect" a bbeg.

I do have a question, concerning the part I bolded. Do you intend to give the mindblade the ability to manifest a ranged weapon, or does it concern only thrown melee weapons ?
"-Lady-Captain, we detect 20 hostile vessels against us,  and Erasmus Haarlock's Spear of Destiny ! What are your orders ?
-RAMMING SPEED !

final result : 6 slaughts vessels, 4 imperial frigates, 2 imperial cruisers destroyed. Haarlock sent into the warp. 0 losses. Flawless Victory.

Fixed.

Short answers. Hm.
