You emphasize and exploit the potential of the special material from which your shield is made.
Benefit(s): When wielding a shield made of one of the materials listed below, you can use the listed ability twice per day.
- Darkwood: As a free action as part of an attack with your shield, you can drive splinters of your shield into your opponent, dealing an amount of bleed damage equal to 1 + the shield’s enhancement bonus.
- Dragonhide: As an immediate action when you take energy damage of the type to which the dragonhide shield is immune, you can reduce the amount of damage you take by 10 hit points.
- Living steel: As a free action as part of an attack with your shield, you can attempt a sunder combat maneuver check against a metal weapon wielded by your target. If you succeed at the attempt, the weapon gains the broken condition; if the weapon already has the broken condition, it is destroyed.
