Shield was a relatively simple abjuration spell used by wizards[1] or, in the past, sorcerers. When cast, shield manifested a wall of magical force around the caster, deflecting away damage and enhancing their reflexes significantly[citation needed]. Shield was not a very complex spell, but it required enough power on the part of its caster that it could not be recast until he or she had taken a short rest of a few minutes or more.[1]

Before the Spellplague, shield was also used by sorcerers and, like other spells, could only be used a number of times per day equal to the number of times a wizard had prepared for it or a sorcerer had the energy left to cast.[citation needed]
