Adroit Warden

NOTICE!

This archetype was removed in an updated version of the Spheres of Might book, and should probably not be used. It will continue being hosted on this page for the benefit of anyone who was using it and wants to keep doing so.


While the classic image of a defender is clad in steel, standing amid the field of combat, adroit wardens askew such defenses. Instead, they engage their foes with minimal protection, depending on their quick reflexes and natural skill to see them through skirmishes.

Agile Defender (Ex): At 2nd level, an adroit warden gains either Unarmored Training or Shield Training from the Equipment sphere as a bonus talent. If she already possesses both of these talents, she may instead gain a (discipline) talent from the Equipment sphere of her choice.

Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level and higher, an adroit warden can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with incredible resiliency. If she makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can only be used if the adroit warden is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless adroit warden does not gain the benefit of evasion.

This ability replaces armored evasion.

Counter Critical (Ex): At 6th level, whenever a critical hit is confirmed against the adroit warden, she can expend her martial focus as a free action which can be taken even when it is not her turn to make an opposed attack roll. If the adroit warden’s attack roll is higher than the confirmation roll for the critical hit, the critical hit instead deals normal damage. Counter critical can only be used if the adroit warden is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless adroit warden does not gain the benefit of counter critical.

This ability replaces armored guardian.

Stalwart (Ex): At 9th level, if the androit warden makes a Fortitude or Will saving throw against an attack that has a reduced effect on a successful save, she instead avoids the effect entirely. Stalwart can only be used if the adroit warden is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless adroit warden does not gain the benefit of the stalwart ability.

This ability replaces armored stalwart.
