Spell resistance is an abjuration spell that grants resistance to incoming spells.[1]


The creature gains SR equal to 12 + caster level.[1]

In order to affect a creature who has SR with a spell, a spellcaster must roll the creature’s SR or higher on 1d20 + caster level. A creature with SR may voluntarily lower it in order to accept a spell.[1]
