Block the Elements is a passive shield specialization that reduces the damage dealt from elemental flares and ball spell explosions. Each additional rank provides for greater damage reduction, as do larger sized shields.


Protection against a retributive flare from a fire mage:

The fire mage looks upon you with utter hatred. Flames shoot from her eyes and engulf you!
You manage to block some of the elemental damage with your eonake scaled greatshield!
  ... 10 points of damage!
  Burst of flames to neck chars skin. Yuck!
  You are stunned for 1 round!
