Improved Shield Bypass (Combat)

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 3.75 (4 Votes)
Your mastery of flexible weapons allows you to completely bypass your opponents shield defenses.

Prerequisites
Shield Bypass, BAB +10

Benefit
You are an expert at using flexible weapons (Morningstars, chains, whips) to wrap around your opponents shields, and thus bypass their shield defense. By taking a swift action, you may, while wielding a flexible weapon you have weapon focus and specialization in, reduce your opponents shield bonus (including enhancements) to AC to +0 for the rest of the round. Only you benefit from this reduction, not your allies.

Normal
Your shield bypass ability only halves your enemy's shield bonus.

Special
You may take this feat more than once. It's effects do not stack. Each time you take it, you may take it for a weapon for which you already posess the Shield Bypass feat.
