You may block projectiles easily with your shield.
You must be using a Buckler
, small shield or large shield when using this feat. Once per round when you or someone immediately behind you would normally be hit with a ranged weapon, you may make a Reflex
saving throw against a DC of 20 (if the ranged weapon has a magical bonus to attack, the DC increases by that amount). You add a Small or Large Shield's armor bonus, and enhancement bonus if applicable, to your Reflex
check for purposes of this feat. If you succeed, you deflect the weapon. You must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed
. You may block an incoming missile attack with your shield only once per round. This feat also allows you to block magical projectile attacks (e.g. acid arrow
, fire arrow), but the shield will sustain any damage from the spell that exceeds its hardness. Against special attacks with splash damage (e.g. acid, alchemist's fire
, etc.), if the Reflex
saving throw is successful, the shield takes the primary damage and you take only the splash damage.
You may take this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take this feat, you may block an additional missile attack with your shield. You may not block more attacks in a round than 1 + your Dexterity
bonus (minimum of one attack).
