Distarns (3.5e Equipment)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: ok so this is effectively a pair of bracers (an under used slot throughout DnD) that allow someone the AC of a light shield passively, works with every class and can be upgraded to also include a weapon? needs to be reduced in ability or made an exotic shield proficiency because it has too much going for it. probably both.

The Dastanas are made of light-weight metal that are worn like bracers. They are placed around the arm from wrist to about an inch away from the elbow, and they give you a small shield bonus. You only gain the shield bonus if you have one on each arm—if you only have one on, there is no effect. They sell in pairs and you can dual wield weapons without penalties. requires the shield proficiency feat and conflicts with the druid class restrictions.
