Does the spring attack feat not provide the protection from an AOO that it should according to the SRD? It didn't seem to be working correctly for me. If this is the case I am going to look into fixing it in Temple+. Benefit When using the attack action with a melee weapon, you can move both before and after the attack, provided that your total distance moved is not greater than your speed. Moving in this way does not provoke an attack of opportunity from the defender you attack, though it might provoke attacks of opportunity from other creatures, if appropriate. You can’t use this feat if you are wearing heavy armor.
