Priest's shield was a prayer cast by several clerics, most often battle clerics. When a cleric casted priest's shield he or she struck a foe with their melee weapon while simultaneously enhancing their, and one nearby ally's, ability to avoid injury for a brief moment. The strength of the prayer iwas consistent and proportional to that of the cleric's physical power as well as the cleric's degree of experience. Priest's shield was easy to use and could be cast at will.[1]
