( Expanded Psionics Handbook, p. 51)


You can return incoming arrows, as well as crossbow bolts, spears, and other projectile or thrown weapons.


Point Blank Shot (PH) , Psionic Shot (XPH) , Fell Shot (XPH) , base attack bonus +3,


To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus (see the Concentration skill description, page 37) and have at least one hand free. Once per round when you would normally be hit by a projectile or a thrown weapon no more than one size category larger than your size, you can defl ect the attack so that you take no damage from it. The attack is defl ected back at your attacker, using the attack bonus of the original attack on you. You must be aware of the attack and not fl at-footed. Attempting to return a shot is a free action.


If you also have the Defl ect Arrows feat (see page 93 of the Player's Handbook), the defl ected attack is made with the original attack bonus plus your Dexterity bonus.
