View Full Version : D&D 3.x Other Shield Protecting others idea, thoughts wanted.

Shields are (from an optimization standpoint) inferior to the other combat forms. The idea Ive been kicking around is that if an attack draws its line through a character wielding a shield to another target, that target would get the shield bonus as well as the normal cover bonus.

I was also considering making shields increase to AC affect touch AC as well, basically giving shield users a free feat (http://dndtools.eu/feats/players-handbook-ii--80/shield-specialization--2594/).

All thoughts and comments are appreciated.

I can suggest a shield feat or two. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?166004-Building-a-Better-Shield-Fighter)
