Partial Defense (Combat)

 

You are trained to shore up your defenses in battle more quickly.

Benefit: You gain access to the partial defense action. As a move action, you can grant yourself a +2 dodge bonus to your AC for 1 round. Your AC improves at the start of this action. You cannot combine a partial defense action with fighting defensively or with the benefit of the Combat Expertise feat, nor can you combine it with the total defense action. You can't make attacks of opportunity while using partial defense.

Special: When using the partial defense action, you gain any bonuses from feats, class features, or other sources which normally apply only when using the total defense action.
