Weapon Deflection causes affected targets to become less effective in their attack prowess, thereby losing 25 to their attack strength and reducing their damage factor (DF) by 10%, with the DF reduction stackable up to five times. Each subsequent 10% reduction is calculated using the original DF, not the previously reduced DF. There is absolutely no warding check with this spell, which makes it virtually impossible to defend against unless the target is completely immune to magic.

Weapon Deflection uses the standard negative duration formula.
