Reactive Shield gives you the effects of the Raise a Shield action and the Raise a Shield action lasts until the beginning of your next turn.
Or is the benifit From reactive shield only for the triggering action.
Thanks

Reactive Shield says you 'immediately use the Raise a Shield action'

And the Raise a Shield action says its benefits last until the start of your next turn.

Without any text to the contrary, I'd say it lasts until the start of your next turn per the text of RaS.


Gives the full benefits of raise a shield action RAW, nothing says it is only for the triggering action.


It lasts the whole turn.

If it had given the bonus only for the triggering attack it would had said that, like the rogue nimble dodge reaction.

Yep, it lasts the whole turn. It's a good feat, really helpful for fighters that want to move around and still get to use their 2-action attack feats, without losing the benefit of a shield completely.
