Focus Barrier is a group focus spell that provides the caster and member's of his group a +30 Defensive Strength (DS) bonus.

"Focus" spells are a new category of group spells that do not have a fixed duration. The spell will terminate when the caster dies or is sufficiently stunned. Group members who leave the group and the immediate room of the caster will lose the spell effect within approximately 60 seconds.

A caster can maintain only one focus spell at a time. However, a group of mentalists can provide one focus spell apiece, thus enabling the group to have multiple focus spells simultaneously.

Note: Minor stuns may not cause the spell to drop. Anecdotal observations suggest that the stun length must be at least 4 or 5 rounds to end the spell (additional research is still needed).
