Adaptive Defense

You have learned to shift your fighting style to adapt against the various enemies you face. In any combat situation, you can rapidly acclimate to your opponent’s technique once you have seen it.

  • When an enemy attacks you, whether they hit or miss, you may use your reaction to adjust your technique. When you do this, gain a +1 bonus to your AC against attacks from creatures of that creature type. Additionally, gain a +1 bonus on attack rolls against creatures of that creature type. This benefit expires at the end of the combat and you can only adapt to one creature type at a time.
  • When an enemy forces you to make a Strength or Dexterity saving throw against a spell or ability, you may use your reaction to adapt to that attack. When you do this, gain advantage on Strength or Dexterity saving throws against spells of the same school or the exact ability used against you. This benefit expires at the end of the combat and you can only adapt to one spell or ability type at a time.
