The current benefit of Devout Protector Expertise is:"You gain a +1 feat bonus to weapon attack rolls you make with any one-handed melee weapon and a +1 feat bonus to implement attack rolls you make with holy symbols. These bonuses increase to +2 at 11th level and +3 at 21st level. In addition, while you use a shield, your allies gain a +1 shield bonus to AC."It's probably in need of further changes, since there's no distance specified for the shield bonus.
ohh.. that explains things about the builder a bit better for me..Not to get too off topic here, but ive been using the CharOp for Paladin defenders as a form of insight to things, and it was showing a bunch of stuff i hadn't seen in the builder until just this past week, but was listed in the CharOp since October or something like that.on topic: beats Master at Arms for a sword/shield type paladin ^.^
Bringing this thread back. The feat is in the OCB now, and still says "In addition, while you use a shield, your allies gain a +1 shield bonus to AC."Does this do what I think it does?
Yeah, that's what I think it does. That was kind of a joke, phrasing my question like that.It just seems.... well like a typo. Like they forgot to put "adjacent" in there or something. Just wondering if anyone thinks that there is likely be errata or if it is balanced as is. I know that article has been there for a while now, I don't think this feat has changed.
Hey what became of the adsurdity of this ranged infinite shield bonus set by its descriptive presentation as the Devout Protector Expertise feat. Its brought up in a game I'm DMing and I was hoping in avoiding addressing this directly while limited the shield bonus to adjacent allies but now the player is demanding more shouild be recognized as the feat.
Yeah, Martyr that what happening, as it written, an infinite ranged shield bonus to all with the paladin, but I'm with Alcestis on this one. Perish that idea, its more than absurded, its, its, mad.
I'm fine with as written, I just like to mumbled under my breath about certain procedures that are granted as fact that also messes up logic.
