Need to attack? Edit

"A character with this feat can make defensive attacks, gaining a +10 bonus to AC but receiving a –10 penalty to Attack Rolls".

Does this AC bonus apply only while attacking another or do you get it while just doing nothing? -- 15:54, 6 February 2006 (PST)

  • You get it as long as you are in IE mode.GhostNWN 15:59, 6 February 2006 (PST)

Use? Edit

Does anyone use this? With a -10 AB penalty, it is basically a parry... Blacknight 10:47, 28 June 2006 (PDT)

  • It's useful for spell casters, or shifters using breath attacks. 13:57, 29 June 2006 (PDT)
  • It is also useful for tanks who have other people with them to inflict damage. Also it can help improve your odds, for example, it can turn +10 ab 30 AC into +0 ab 40 AC, which against +20 ab 40 AC would change it from a complete slaughter to everyone only hitting on 20s, or against +25 ab 20 AC would drop the opponents hit rate by 2 thirds and only drop the user's hit rate by half. Also it can just slow a battle down to give the user more time to react.RAMss 04:33, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

'does not replace...' Edit

Shouldn't a similar note be added to the improved power attack page? Gruftlord 21:55, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Probably. You want to do it? --The Krit 22:45, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

AC type Edit

Does anyone know what type of AC bonus this is? Is it lost when flat footed? -- 00:51, 21 January 2011

  • It still counts when flatfooded, it is uncapped and probably natural type. ShaDoOoW 19:19, January 21, 2011 (UTC)
  • This is one of the other types of AC, and as such is not lost when flat-footed. --The Krit 19:31, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
