A character with this feature can no longer be flanked. This defense denies another character the option to sneak attack the character by flanking her, unless the attacker has at least four more class levels, in their class which provides sneak attack, than the target does.



  • If a character has more than one class that provides improved uncanny dodge (or uncanny dodge) the total levels of both classes are used to determine the minimum class level required to flank the character.
  • Unlike 3.5, Uncanny Dodge is not upgraded to Improved Uncanny Dodge, if a character with the feat gains it again from another class.
  • This feat will not defend against sneak attacks from hidden opponents. It will prevent sneak attacks via flank attacks, according to criteria indicated above.
