Mirror of the Planes

Price 22,859 gp; Slot none; CL 15th; Weight 6 lbs.; Aura strong abjuration


This +1 energized mirrored light steel shield is faintly etched with the symbology of the four elements upon its polished surface. An elementer that wields the mirror of the planes gains the absorption class feature, if she didn’t have it already. If she has that class feature, she gains 1 point of energy for 15 points of damage prevented, rather than every 20 points.

When the bearer of the mirror of the planes would gain energy through the absorption ability, she can choose to let the shield absorb the energy, rather than gaining points in her energy pool. The energy is absorbed into the shield for 1 minute, during which any shield bash attacks made with the shield deal an additional 1d6 points of damage. At any point during this time, the bearer of the mirror of the planes can use a swift action to unleash a bolt of energy from the shield as a ranged touch attack against a target within 60 feet of her. The bolt deals 2d8 points of damage for every 1 point of energy she directed to the shield. The damage added to shield bash attacks and dealt with the bolt is the same type as whatever energy type activated the absorption ability in the first place (acid, cold, electricity, or fire). The elemental damage added to shield bashes stacks with any energy damage the shield might already deal.

Once the mirror of the planes is charged with energy, it cannot absorb any more until the bolt of energy is released or for 1 minute, at which point the energy within the shield dissipates harmlessly.
