Svirfneblin Racial Utility 10Crystal Shield
You throw a handful of crystal powder in the air, and it forms a protective barrier of clear crystal.
Minor Action Personal
Effect: You conjure a shield of crystal that surrounds you and moves with you. The shield has hit points equal to your healing surge value, and it lasts until the end of the encounter or until it is reduced to 0 hit points.
While the shield remains, you gain a +2 power bonus to AC and Reflex. When an attack hits your AC or Reflex, you can use the shield as a free action to absorb some or all of the damage. You still take all other effects from the attack, as well as any damage that exceeds the shield’s hit points.
