Epic feat Armed Deflection (Epic)
You can deflect arrows or other ranged weapons with your melee weapon.
- Prerequisite: Dexterity 21, Intelligence 13, Wisdom 15, Epic Weapon Focus, Expertise, Weapon Focus
- Benefit: When wielding a weapon with which you have selected the Epic Weapon Focus feat, once per round when you normally would be hit with a ranged weapon, you can make a Reflex saving throw (DC 20; if the ranged weapon has a magical bonus to attack, the DC increases by that amount). If you succeed, you deflect the weapon. You must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed. Attempting to deflect a ranged weapon doesn’t count as an action. Exceptional ranged weapons, such as spell effects or boulders hurled by giants, can’t be deflected.
- Special: This feat can be substituted for the Improved Unarmed Strike and Deflect Arrows feats for the purpose of qualifying for another feat, such as Exceptional Deflection. To employ other feats that have such prerequisites, you must be wielding a weapon with which you have selected the Epic Weapon Focus feat.
