Shield (originally called General Matick's shield[1]) was a relatively simple abjuration spell used by wizards or sorcerers.[3]

EffectsEdit

When cast, shield manifested a wall of magical force around the caster, deflecting away damage and enhancing his or her 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 a short rest of a few minutes or more had been taken.[3]

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]

HistoryEdit

The spell was supposedly invented by the Netherese arcanist and warrior General Matick in −1580 DR,[11] but many scholars believed that he had only commissioned its invention.[12]
