Elemental Defense III (commonly referred to as "brills") creates a brilliant luminescence around the target, providing them with a +20 bonus to all types of defensive strength (DS), as well as a +15 bonus to elemental target defense (TD).
Training in Elemental Lore, Earth unlocks the ability for a 5% chance for a magical barrier to deflect a single physical (AS/DS) attack at 25 ranks, if the caster has all 3 Elemental Defense spells active and has the knowledge to cast all of them. Every 20 additional Earth Lore ranks adds 1% to the deflection chance. Odds are reduced by 1% for every 5 levels the attacker is above the caster.
