Hoplite Combat

Prereqs: BAB +6, Weapon Focus (spear), Weapon Specialization (spear), Shield Specialization, Active Shield Defense
Benefits: You gain access to three new combat options:
- Spear and Shield: You may use a spear as a one-handed weapon while also wearing a shield. While wearing a shield, you may set your spear against a charge as a Move action.
- Reach Attack: Using your shield to cover a motions that would otherwise leave you vulnerable, you thrust your spear at a distant foe. While wearing a shield and wielding a spear, you may make a single attack with your spear at +5 ft. range as a Standard action.
- Phalanx Ward: Used in conjunction, your spear and shield are a potent defense against charging foes. While wearing a shield and wielding a spear, you may both make an attack of opportunity and also a Reflex save to avoid the effect of a trample or overrun attack. You always get an attack of opportunity against foes who attempt to bull rush or grapple you, even if their feats normally don't allow you one.
