Empathic Focus allows the caster to recall past injuries and transform his or her memories into a beneficial focus, providing a +15 bonus to a player's spiritual target defense (TD), a +25 bonus to generic defensive strength (DS), and a +15 bonus to melee attack strength (AS). This spell also adds to general maneuver defense.

The spell will protect the user from a standard maneuver if the maneuver is able to be evaded, and the spells Elemental Wave (410) and Major Elemental Wave (435). In addition, it provides an unknown defensive benefit against SMRv2 spells and maneuvers.

Training in the Empath Base spell circle increases the DS bonus by +1 for every 2 ranks known over 1109, with the benefit capped at level. The mana cost of the spell increases by 1 mana for every additional +3 DS.
