You have mastered the use of heavy armor, maximizing its protective qualities while moving more easily in it.
Type of feat: General
Prerequisite: Heavy Armor Optimization, Base Attack Bonus +12
Required for: Epic Heavy Armor Optimization
Benefit: When you are wearing heavy armor, lessen the armor check penalty of the armor by 2 and increase the dodge AC bonus by 1, for a total lessening of the armor check penalty of 3 and a total increase to the armor bonus of 2.
Special: A fighter or divine champion may select Greater Heavy Armor Optimization as one of his class bonus feats.
Note: If you repeatedly unequip and re-equip armor while having a weapon or shield equipped in your left hand, your armor class may be negatively impacted. To fix this, unequip the armor while holding nothing in the character's left hand.
