Two-Weapon Defense and Combat Expertise

(1/2) > >>

Berger King:
Two-Weapon Defense feat grants:


--- Quote ---Benefit: When wielding a double weapon or two weapons (not including natural weapons or unarmed strikes), you gain a +1 shield bonus to your AC.

When you are fighting defensively or using the total defense action, this shield bonus increases to +2.
--- End quote ---

 


Would the shield bonus increase in the second part also apply when using combat expertise?

Combat expertise is a Dodge Bonus so it would be additive.

Berger King:
I mean does the bonus go up to +2 when using combat expertise. I guess the question is: for the purposes of this feat, is combat expertise the same as fighting defensively/total defense?

No.  Combat Expertise is different from fighting defensively.  You can do one, the other, both, or neither.  If you do both, the bonuses stack.

And it would stack in any case with a shield bonus.
