From Epic Path
Jump to: navigation, search

You can knock arrows and other lightweight projectiles off course, preventing them from hitting you.

Prerequisites: Level 1

Unlocks: Deflection, Exceptional (Feat), Infinite Deflection (Feat),Missile Shield (Feat), Ray Shield (Feat)

Benefit: Once per round when you would normally be hit with a ranged attack, you may deflect it so that you take no damage from it. You must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed. Attempting to deflect a ranged attack doesn't count as an action (a free action). This feat does not work against any melee attacks, or any ranged touch attacks.

Special: This feat operates against alchemical items (such as Alchemist bombs and tanglefoot bags), subject to GM ruling.

Note: Unusually massive ranged weapons (such as shot puts and other massive ranged weapons, thrown boulders, ballista bolts, and other siege weapon attacks) can't be deflected.
