Required for
Improved Uncanny Dodge

The character retains his Dex bonus to AC, even if caught flat-footed or attacked by a hidden or invisible creature.



  • The in-game description of this feat is incorrect. As per the Game Manual, this feat does not include attacks from hidden creatures. Successful attacks from stealth will not be affected by Uncanny Dodge.
  • Uncanny Dodge does work, but only as described in the Game Manual (not the in-game description shown above) - it is only effective against invisible attackers.
  • Unlike 3.5, Uncanny Dodge will not be upgraded to Improved Uncanny Dodge, if a character with the feat gains it again from another class.

NWN comparison[]

  • In NWN, Uncanny dodge also incorporated the reflex bonus provided by trap sense.
