Radiant shield is an evocation spell that shocks attackers and protects against electricity.


A scintillating aura of white radiance wreathes you and causes damage to each creature that attacks you in melee. The radiance also protects you from electricity attacks.

Any creature striking you with a natural or handheld weapon deals normal damage but also takes electricity damage (the creature’s spell resistance applies).

You take only half damage from electricity-based attacks. If an electricity-based attack allows evasion for half damage, you take no damage on a successful dodge1.

The radiance is as bright as a light spell, casting bright light in a 10-foot radius and shadowy illumination to 20 feet.[1]

Abstinence ComponentEdit

You must not have cast a darkness or necromantic spell within the last 24 hours before casting this spell.[1]
