    DM can just say to player that, if he want, can use shield to protect himself otherwise “sorry, your enemy hit an high AC more than your shield spell can help”

    I would disagree with this, as the idea is it is a ROLE playing game, and having been in actual combat (Karate matches), I never knew by what percentage of a number someone hit me by… the numbers are for us to manage the game, but the ROLE play aspect should take presidency over the game mechanics, and unless a spell has a “psychic” or “predictive” aspect (which this one does not), then it should be based on the characters perspective, which is they are about to get hit and they have a choice to try to avoid it by bolstering their defense (AC), or not.

      But isn’t it just a game? In real life noone moves in turn right? So the answer should be mechanical in terms of the game and not trying to make it realistic because magic is not a very realistic concept.
