Block Arrow

( Heroes of Battle, p. 96)

[Fighter Bonus Feat, General]

You can block incoming arrows with your shield.


Shield Proficiency (PH) , DEX 13,


You must be using a shield to use this feat. Once per round when you would normally be hit with a ranged weapon, you can deflect it so that you take no damage from it. You must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed. Unusually massive ranged weapons, such as boulders hurled by giants, siege weapon attacks, and ranged attacks generated by spell effects (such as Melf's acid arrow) can't be deflected.


A fighter can select Block Arrow as one of his fighter bonus feats (see page 38 of the Player's Handbook).
