Thurfel's Ward provides a generic +20 to one's defensive strength (DS).

There is an additional mana cost of +1 for every +3 DS provided in this self-casting manner. When self-cast, there is an additional +1 bonus to DS for every four Major Elemental spell rank above 503. When cast upon others, the flat +20 DS bonus will always apply.

The visible colors shown in the messaging depend on one's elemental attunement. If no attunement is chosen, or if it is set at random, a random color will display.

Lore Benefit

Training in Elemental Lore, Earth will give a chance of seed 10 summation of ranks to gain an additional +20 DS on any single attack.

Elemental Lore, Earth ranks 10 21 33 46 60 75 91 108 126 145 165 186 208 231
Chance for additional +20 DS on any single attack 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 7% 8% 9% 10% 11% 12% 13% 14%

For MSTRIKEs, each individual attack of that MSTRIKE will have its own separate chance and will only gain the +20 DS for that part(s) of the MSTRIKE that pass the activation check.
