Elemental Barrier provides a barrier of elemental protection around the caster, increasing defensive strength (DS) against melee, ranged, and bolt attacks, and target defense (TD) against elemental spells.

The spell will protect the user from an SMRv1 maneuver if the maneuver is able to be defended against by a shield. For example, soul golems pushing a character into steam vents can be deflected by a shield, so this spell would give the user protection.

Further training in the Minor Elemental spell circle increases both the DS and TD by +1 for every 2 spell ranks known over 30.

Overtraining in Minor Elemental spell ranks does not yield additional bonus past the caster's level.

Total DS or TD benefit = 15 + [(400s ranks - 30) ÷ 2]

Lore Benefit
