Prismatic Guard is a defensive enhancement spell.

It provides:

For each rank of Wizard Base spells known:

  • the duration of the spell is extended by 60 seconds from its base 1200 second duration.
  • the physical DS bonus is increased by +1 for every 4 ranks known over 905.
  • the bolt DS bonus is increased by +1 for every 4 ranks known over 905.

The mana cost also increases by +1 for every 12 Wizard Base ranks known over 905. (or 3 DS bonus over 5.)
