Description: This spell creates a lightning shield around your person. Any creature striking you with its body does normal damage, but at the same time the attacker takes 1d6 points +3 points per 2 caster levels of electrical damage. The caster also gains 25% immunity to electrical damage. Damage shield spells (aka biteback) that cause damage to a melee attacker do not stack. The last spell cast overrides any other damage shield. All damage shield spells are moved to the top of the Breach List. One exception: these spells do stack with the damage shield of the Aura Versus Alignment spell.

Notes

  • Biteback spells, spells that cause damage to a melee attacker, do not stack. The last spell cast overrides the others.
  • All biteback spells (aka damage shields) are moved to the top of the Breach List.
  • Death Armor special scaling for Pale Master or Clerics(Death, Undeath): Death Armor scaling is uncapped and scales at +1 per CL instead of +1 per 2 CL for 32.5 average @ 30.
  • These spells do stack with the biteback damage of Aura Versus Alignment.
