Buckler 10 gp 1d4 bludgeoning 2 lb. Finesse, light, special

A buckler is a small metal shield held in a fist grip. Unlike a typical shield, a wielder with more finesse can use to more effectively parry weapons than bulkier shields.

While you are wielding this buckler proficiently, when you take the Attack action on your turn, you can use your bonus action to parry with this buckler. Until the start of your next turn, your Armor Class increases by an amount corresponding to your Dexterity score: +1, +2, or +3 for respective Dexterity scores of 15, 17, and 19 or higher. You lose this benefit if you are disarmed of this buckler, or gain an Armor Class bonus from another shield.

To be proficient with this buckler, you must either be proficient with shields or with all martial weapons.
