View Full Version : Shield Feats?

2010-06-06, 12:19 PM
So my group has gone down to just two players, a psion and a wizard/cleric/mystic thurge.

As such, I'm going to throw in a DMPC. We've done it before, we're cool, the DMPC's really just tend to be in the background for most part. If the players miss major points for whatever reason, despite it being writen to them, I sometimes have them point it out by flat out saying "Hey, the sword is in the inn..."

In anycase, I figured a good one to use would be just a meat shield. Just a creature to call people and hold their ground. I figured I'd use a shield master. A guy that is well defended, and even use shields to fight with. (I'd do a duel shielder if the shields stacked XD).

Anyways, here are the feats I've found so far. If anyone has any more, please tell me where.

Improved Shield Bash

Shield Specialization
Active Shield Defense
Agile Sield Fighter
Shield Sling
Shield Ward

Shield Charge
Shield Slam

I have everybook, but those are the only ones I can remember at top of my head. Are there any other books with shields?

Any tips on what shield I should use, and any how to effectly use them? The class will be fighter. I do know there are other wise to make a better defense, but really, this is abouit the PC's shining, not my guy kicking ass. Any tips on how to effectly draw the monsters towards him, other then DM fiat?

Person_Man has a Guide to Shield (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=123630) in these very boards.

[Edit]: I would actually suggest Combat Reflexes and Stand Still for a defensive character. Keep 'em at hand, so to say.
[2.Edit]: Have you considered Knight (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20060501a&page=2)?

The Imp. Shield Bash feats work really well in conjunction with Tiger's Claw from Tome of Battle.
