The Blasting Wilder's modified Wild Surge ability says (emphasis mine):
A blasting wilder uses her wild surge not to improve her psionic powers, but to enhance her surge blast ability. Any time the blasting wilder invokes a wild surge, she gains no increase to her manifester level, but adds one die of damage to her surge blast for each point of the wild surge and can expend her psionic focus to use her surge blast as a free action in the same round she used her wild surge, although she may only do this once per round, even if wild surging more than once per round. This ability functions in all other ways as Wild Surge, including the risk of psychic enervation, and is modified by the wilder’s surge choice as normal. Wild surges that do not increase the manifester level, such as Efficient Surge, cannot be used with this archetype.
I am confused how this would work out in practice. For starters, the Surge Blast description says that Surge Blasts do not trigger Psychic Enervation at all; however, it is unclear whether firing a Surge Blast counts as using a Wild Surge. On top of that, the regular Wilder class text implies, but does not outright state, that a Wild Surge can only be invoked to manifest a Power -- yet the Blasting Wilder text would seem to contradict this.
To be more specific, which (if any) of the following sequences of actions are legal on a Blasting Wilder's turn ?
- Standard: Invoke Wild Surge to manifest a Power. Free: expend Psionic Focus to fire a Surge Blast.
- Standard: Surge Blast. Free: expend Psionic Focus to fire an additional Surge Blast.
