Body Shield

Prerequisite(s): Dexterity 13 or higher, fighter level 6

With a sly maneuver, you force a grappled opponent into the path of an incoming attack.

  • When you are grappling a creature no more than one size larger or smaller than you and you are attacked, you can make a Strength (Athletics) check against the creature you are grappling as a reaction to pivot the creature you are grappling into the path of the attack. If your Strength (Athletics) check succeeds, you gain three-quarters cover against that single attack. If the attack misses you, the attack instead targets the creature you used as cover, using the same attack roll. You cannot use this feat against an attack made by a creature grappling you, and the cover applies only against that attack.
