Ardent with Linked Power

At level 10 an ardent can choose not to get a secondary mantale and instead make one of his primary mantles the dominate one. Doing so gives him the ability to reduce the cost of MetaPsionic feats by 2 PP. My question is how does this interact with Linked Power?

Linked power allows you to add another power onto the casting of the current one, so that the Cost is simply the total of the two powers. Does the Ardent's ability allow me to lower the cost of the 2nd power since it's part of a meta psionic feat?


Also if someone could please tell me the name of the Ardent alternate class feature and link the WoTC article that would be great. I original found out about the alternative build from another forum when randomly skimming for tips on Ardent builds. I forgot to bookmark the page and am unable to locate it through WoTC's article search function and google doesn't seem to find it either.

In this case like in the case of Heightening Spell you can't reduce the cost because are the add of the normal cost of 2 powers but maybe your DM let you waste 2 more power points for this Case

I can find the rule to reduce the cost of MP where you found it???

Dominant Ideal

An ardent develops her power by embracing philosophical concepts, with her two primary mantles serving as the core of her beliefs, and the secondary mantles providing peripheral views of the world. For some, one specific ideal outshines even its primary companion, and secondary considerations are little more than a distracting shadow of doubt. If you want to make a single mantle the focus of your ardent, selecting the dominant ideal alternative class feature allows you to use its powers more effectively. In exchange for this stronger focus, you must give up access to a new psionic mantle, reducing your overall power selection.


Replaces: If you select this class feature, you do not assume an additional secondary psionic mantle at 10th level.


Benefit: At 10th level, you choose one of your primary mantles to become the dominant ideal in your philosophy, deepening your connection to this fundamental principle. You do not need to expend your psionic focus when applying metapsionic feats to powers you manifest from your chosen primary mantle, and the power point cost of augmenting or applying metapsionic feats to these idealized powers is reduced by 2 (to a minimum of 0). The reduction in cost applies only to the additional power points spent on augmentation or metapsionic feats; the power's normal power point cost is not reduced.


If you later decide to make the primary mantle for which you have selected this alternative class feature into a secondary mantle, you must also swap this feature, allocating it to one of your primary mantles.





In the case of linked power it's the first power that is being augmented. Which is why I was wondering if it would reduce the cost since it's simply added the PP cost of the 2nd power to give it's effect. 

still the cost are Based in the powers you add then the can't reduce the PP in this case but if that power come with other metapsionc feat this will be reduced but still if you combine 2 power of 3 PP and 5 PP you can't reduce it minus to 8PP.
