Shield Proficiency [General][edit | edit source]

Benefit[edit | edit source]

You can use a shield and take only the standard penalties.

Normal[edit | edit source]

When you are using a shield with which you are not proficient, you take the shield’s armor check penalty on attack rolls and on all skill checks that involve moving, including Ride checks.

Special[edit | edit source]

Barbarians, bards, clerics, druids, fighters, paladins, and rangers automatically have Shield Proficiency as a bonus feat. They need not select it.
