Could someone explain the new shield reflex save thingy?

---Quote (Originally by artistx)--- Characters who are proficient with shields can now use larger shields for defense against magical attacks that would normally require a Reflex Saving Throw. Instead of using your Reflex Saving Throw to mitigate the damage, you can deflect the damage off of your shield. Physical and Magical Resistance Rating multipliers against magical attacks that normally allow a Reflex Saving Throw are as follows: Buckler: No additional mitigation Light Shield: No additional Mitigation Heavy Shield: 2.0 Tower Shield: 2.0 This makes very little sense to me... how does the shield reflex save work? what stat decides if I save? ---End Quote--- It's not another or different save. Whatever damage you would take is reduced by Magical Resistance. If you have a Heavy or Tower shield, your Magical Resistance is considered doubled if the damage could have been halved with a Reflex Saving throw. To put it another way: If Evasion could have reduced the damage to zero, you can double your effective rating of Magical Resistance by wearing a heavy shield. This is just an extra bonus; your MRR would normally have reduced the damage anyway (assuming it's one of the affected damage types).
