Divine Shield provides a protective celestial barrier around the paladin and his group, increasing the chance to outright block incoming blows.

Blocking requires a shield. The base version of the spell adds +10% to normal block chance (which depends on the level difference between attacker and defender, stance, and other factors). The chance to block can be further increased with training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings. Any group member that leaves the paladin's group will lose the effect of the spell.

This spell may also be self-cast via the EVOKE command, which will apply the effect only to the caster instead of the entire group.

When Divine Shield is active, Zealot (1617) cannot be cast.

Usage

  • INCANT SET EVOKE 1609 to always evoke this spell using INCANT 1609
