Nerathi Vanguard Style is an arena fighting style feat. It is available to martial classes who are either human or have a Constitution of 13.[Dr368:61]

  • Commander's strike (warlord, PH 145): If you are wielding a shield when you use this exploit, one ally adjacent to you gains a +1 shield bonus to AC until the end of your next turn.
  • Riposte strike (rogue, PH 118): If the enemy attacks you before the start of your next turn, you can gain a +3 bonus to AC against that attack instead of taking the immediate interrupt attack this exploit grants.
  • Sure strike ( fighter, PH 77): If you are wielding a shield and you hit with this exploit, you gain a +1 feat bonus to AC until the end of your next turn.
  • Twin strike (ranger, PH 105): If you’re wielding two melee weapons and both attacks miss, you gain a +2 shield bonus to AC against the target or targets of your attacks until the end of your next turn.

The only comment in character optimization is that it is a good choice for Riptose Strike, by removing Strength dependance from the power, and the potential for mind games. [char-op Rogue]
