Immediate Dodge [General, Fighter]
You may spontaneously elect to dodge incoming attacks that you are aware of.
As an immediate action
, you can elect to give up your next turn to perform the total defense
combat action, thus gaining the appropriate dodge bonus to your armor class against incoming attacks (+4 dodge bonus, or +6 dodge bonus if you have five ranks or more of Tumble
). You must be able to apply your Dexterity
bonus to AC against the attack, and you must declare this immediate action before the attacker makes their attack roll. Your initiative does not change; you simply do not take an action on your next turn. You gain this dodge bonus until the next time your initiative comes up after your "skipped" turn.
Special: You may apply any benefits of feats or special abilities that improve your dodge bonus to your AC when you activate this ability that you could normally apply to a total defense combat action made on your turn.
Notes: You can’t make attacks of opportunity while using the total defense combat action. An immediate action can be taken at any point, even when it's not your turn.
