Your shadow flows up as a swirling barrier, moving to intercept long-range attacks. The night shield protects you from magic missile spells, as a shield spell. In addition, the shadow deflects a single ranged weapon attack each round. This functions similarly to the Missile Shield feat, though you do not need to be wearing a shield to deflect the attack (the night shield does it for you). This deflected attack is in addition to the one ranged attack you can deflect each round with the Missile Shield feat, if you have it normally. The same limitations of Missile Shield, such as being unable to deflect siege weapons or natural attacks, applies to the night shield.
