Petramancer

Petramancers are powerful elementalists, able to bind their ki energy to the earth itself, allowing them to control soil and rock, manipulating the very ground they walk on

Binding earth requires strength of body and of will, as well as considerable physical coordination. Most petramancers are builders, and their societies always feature beautiful earthen structures. Adventuring petramancers tend to be favor unflinching extremes in personality; they are either brash and loud, or they are as reserved and quiet as the stones they bend

Petramancers are naturally adept in battlefield control, utilty, and defense, though they are also capable of hard hitting single-target damage
