Elemental Deflection provides a +20 bonus to defensive strength (DS), with an additional +1 DS for every two Major Elemental spells known over 507. The increased bonus results in an increased mana cost. The mana cost is 7 + 1 per 3 bonus.

The spell will protect the user from a 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.

Lore Benefit

15 ranks of Elemental Lore, Earth unlocks the ability to reflect bolt attacks. The reflected bolt will hit a random (group/player friendly) target in the room with a -20 AS (of the original attacker) applied to the reflected attack. Success of the initial attack is not considered in whether the reflected bolt occurs. Hidden and invisible creatures will not be hit by a reflected bolt.

Chance to reflect = Base 5% + 1% for every 10 lore ranks over 15
