Greater Bestial Fang (Su)

3/day, a nightmare’s enhances herself or an ally with great magical strength within 40 feet. A nightmare gives one natural weapon or unarmed strike of the subject a +2 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls for 7 hours. The ability can affect a slam attack, fist, bite, or other natural weapon. This bonus does not allow a natural weapon or unarmed strike to bypass damage reduction aside from magic. Alternatively, you may imbue all of the creature’s natural weapons with a +1 enhancement bonus (regardless of your caster level). Blue mages can learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 21).

Magical Strike (Ex)

A nightmare’s gore attack is treated as a magic evil weapon for the purposes of damage reduction.
