Choker of Sidestepping

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement by a fighter or rogue)

This close-fitting black velvet band is worn around the neck. It includes an ornamental gold cat clasp.

Radiates: Transmutation magic.

Power: You gain the sidestep reaction. Whenever you would be hit by a melee weapon or touch spell attack you’re aware of, the attack misses if you can move to an adjacent unoccupied square. You cannot sidestep ranged weapon or spell attacks, including magical or nonmagical area effects. You may use this reaction a number of times per day equal to your proficiency bonus. When you use your last sidestep of the day, you immediately take 1 level of exhaustion.
