With all that in mind I decided to build this character, since it is Con based (also a plus in this campaign), pushes and will qualify for PM at 4th.

However, I'm finding that to qualify for feats that I want or need (and given that I can't rely on Rushing Cleats to help me out) I will suffer from acute MAD. PM requires 15 in Dex and Wis, Con is primary, Str needs to be 15 for Heavy Blade Opportunity (key to later stickiness as a defender), and meanwhile Cha is forlornly trying to hold up my class feature and a lot of handy kickers (such as Visions of Terror). SO! Do I:
-Give over on the Battlemind and make a Fighter? I don't necessarily feel that this solves my problem, as I would still want a solid Con and Str.
-Give over on the Wild Focus feature, instead trying to focus my PM needs on Visions of Terror and freeing up a feat (though not solving my MAD problems).
-Entirely give up on Charisma and put points into Str and Con at every level, enabling me to take Heavy Blade Opportunity but ignoring all Cha related class features?
-Ignore Heavy Blade Opportunity and Plate Proficiency and put points into Cha?
-Build the character in a totally different way I haven't thought of?
