Faith's Clarity (1603)
Faith's Clarity reduces spell hindrance for the caster.
The Paladin's faith is said to have the power to lift the burden from her shoulders. When cast, this spell calls upon divine influence to improve the center of focus for spell casting, effectively reducing the potential hindrance any armor she wears might impose.
There is a 5% hindrance removal from the base hindrance of the armor when casting spiritual sphere spells (Minor Spiritual, Major Spiritual, Cleric Base, Paladin Base, Ranger Base). This reduced hindrance is also applied to Faith's Clarity when it is being cast. The effect temporarily reduces the armor use training requirement for spell hindrance, so casters may see greater hindrance reductions if they are not fully trained for their armor. For more details on the formula, see the spell hindrance article.
The benefit from Faith's Clarity is cumulative with the paladin's Armored Fluidity armor specialization. However, Armored Fluidity is a flat percentile reduction and does not change the armor use requirements.
Training in Spiritual Lore, Summoning further reduces the armor type's base hindrance by an additional 1% per 3 ranks, to a maximum of an additional 5% at 15 ranks (for a total hindrance reduction of 10%). This lore bonus is only applied when the spell is self-cast by a Paladin.
