Mindward protects from mental warding spells.
The bonus is +20 Mental Target Defense (MTD) + 1 MTD for every 2 Minor Mental spell ranks beyond 8, with a maximum bonus of +40 at 48 spell ranks. With the increase in defense comes an increase in mana cost; 8 base mana +1 for every 2 additional MTD bonus gained. Overtraining in Minor Mental spell ranks does not yield additional bonus past the caster's level.
When Mindward is cast upon others, the bonus is a flat +20 MTD with a cost of 8 mana.
