PFS StandardWood Ward [reaction] Feat 17

Ardande Concentrate Plant Primal Wood 
Source Rage of Elements pg. 49
Frequency once per hour
Trigger A creature targets you with an attack.

With a sweep of your hand, vines and roots burst from the ground along the edge of your space between you and the attacker, creating a natural lattice of wood that grants standard cover. The circumstance bonus from the cover applies to your AC when you're determining the outcome of the triggering attack. If the triggering attack still hits and deals physical damage to you, the ward reduces the damage by 30 and is immediately destroyed. If the attack misses, the ward instead persists for 3 rounds before withering back into the earth. Creatures can cross the ward, but it's difficult terrain.
