Climbing (Ex): These constructs are designed to travel easily over vertical surfaces as well as horizontal surfaces. They have a climb speed of 20 feet, and have a +8 racial bonus to Climb skill checks; furthermore, it need not make Climb checks to traverse a vertical or horizontal surface (even upside down). The construct retains its Dexterity bonus to Armor Class while climbing, and opponents get no special bonus to their attacks against it. It cannot, however, use the run action while climbing.
Versatile Attack (Ex): As a full attack action, the construct can attack with both its Piercing Slam and its Mining Torch. These attacks can be on a single target, or against multiple targets. The construct suffers no penalties for firing its torch into melee when using this attack, and this attack does not provoke attacks of opportunity.
Adamantine Body (Ex): Much of the costruct’s body, including its clawed pincers, are crafted from adamantine. For purposes of overcoming damage reduction, the construct’s Piercing Slam attack counts as an adamantine weapon.
Focused (Ex): These constructs are designed to be miners and builders. They will only attack to defend themselves, their fellows, or the objects/buildings they are tasked with building.
