Prayer grants a +10 bonus to the caster's spiritual target defense (TD) and increases protection against maneuver attacks. At 35 ranks of Cleric Base training, the spell grants a bonus of +10 to defensive strength (DS), which increases by 1 for each rank after 35. Overtraining in Cleric Base ranks does not yield additional bonus past the caster's level.
The mana cost of the spell is 13, and increases by 1 for every 3 DS granted over 10.
