Hm... overall, it's a good idea, my only complaint is the Speed tree - an extra attack at 1st level is fairly overpowering, especially since later on this stacks (given a lack of saying it doesn't) with Haste/Speed enchantment, so potentially you would be able to attack at 20/20/20/20/15/10/5 in a full attack at level 20.

I'd suggest removing Extra attack as the 1st tier option, replacing Improved Extra attack with Extra attack at 3rd tier, and replacing 1st tier with something - maybe Improved Initative?

Give at least a -2 penalty to all attacks with that extra attack ability. That's how Two-Weapon Fighting, Rapid Shot and Flurry work. If it isn't overpowering for them then it won't be for you.

If you do consider Flurry/Two-Weapon Fighting/Rapid Shot to be overpowering however...

I don't consider them overpowering because you have to take them instead of another feat, and Rapid Shot and Two-Weapon Fighting are specific (you must use two weapons or a ranged weapon (or multiple thrown ranged weapons)), and Flurry, well you can only use Flurry of Blows with Monk Weapons or Unarmed Strikes, and it is a class-specific ability, after all.

I think you could do this for the Speed tree:

Improved Reaction: +2 Initiative bonus, +1 Reflex bonus

or something like that. I love the idea for it, though. I think you need to refine it, however. There are some of these trees which you wouldn't ever NOT want to take (*coughspeedcough*) and some which allow you to do things that become really quite cheap (Dimmension Door 3/day seems pretty good for a 7th level ability, and Teleport Movement seems good as a 9th level ability). My response: PLAY TESTING. I'd love to help playtest this class, if you need it.

I agree with balancing extra attacks by giving each attack a -5 to hit, making it like Improved Two-Weapon Fighting or something. I also think this is a cool class because you could invent more trees if you wanted to (Spellslaying trees!).
