Deceptive Dodge

( Dragon Compendium)

[Fighter Bonus Feat, General]

You can asume a defensive posture that allows you to redirect melee attacks made against you.


Dodge (PH) , Combat Expertise (PH) , DEX 13, INT 13, Base attack bonus +4,


When a melee attack by your dodge target (as per the Dodge feat) misses you while you are fighting defensively, that attack has a chance to strike another target of your choice that is both adjacent to you and within the attacker's reach. The attacker must make a new attack roll for the redirected attack, using the same modifiers applied to the missed attack.

You may use this feat once per round. If there are no other targets adjacent to you and within the attacker's reach, you can't have attacks strike others.


A fighter may select Deceptive Dodge as one of his fighter bonus feats.
