Magic Barrier is a Miracle in Dark Souls 3. To cast a Miracle you must use a Chime, Talisman, or Special Weapons that can cast Miracles.
Miracle of clerics who wield weapons.
Increases magic damage absorption by covering the body in a white protective coating.
There was a short period in history where clerics and sorcerers opposed one another. Thus it became necessary for even simple clerics to have some means of opposing magic.
- Bought from: Irina of Carim, after giving her the Braille Divine Tome of Lothric for 5,000 souls.
- Increases magic absorption by 35%, lasts 90 seconds.
- Has an upgraded version: Great Magic Barrier.
- Overwritten by Deep Protection, Tears of Denial and Great Magic Barrier.
- Duration can be increased with the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring.

This would be extremely useful for Aldritch for faith builds except it's normally obtained after. You could of course slay Emma and do the dancer early to get it but that is not the intended path.
DS3 magic barrier is crap compared to DS2's magic barrier. DS2's increased all elements not just magic and required one less faith (further reduced with the spices).
Pyro's get Flash Sweat, Counters Pyro's, Clerics (or, faith/miracle builds) get this, to counter Sorcerer's, so, why don't Sorcerer's get a Lightning def buff?
I freaking love this. Whenever i spot a Dusk's crown or Moonlight gs i pop this bad boi and any int builds falls apart. BTW equiping a +10 Simple wep while this spell last outdoes the fp lost from casting it similar to filianore's WA. Great stuff
Increases magic absorption by 35% and lasts for 90 seconds, not 45.
...AFTER giving her the Braille Divine Tome of Lothric, for anyone wondering. Can't edit the wiki at the moment
I guess I'm fine with this thing only reducing magic damage now, but it really needs to get it's AoE back so that you can provide support to your allies as well. It's very similar to flash sweat now except it doesn't help you run through lava. Just too niche to be hauling around everywhere.
In DkS 1 and 2 it was AoE buff, and allowed you to buff yourself and your allies nearby. What a shame, now you can cast it only on yourself, and it absorbs only magical damage. Useless spell (only used by tryhards who cant invest nuff points for GMB, when they are fighting sorc builds)...
appears to only affect MAGIC damage resistance, appears to be 28%, with 32 faith and +4 sunlight talisman(buff power 135)
gained from braille tome in lothric castle. near boss fog, drop down at broken railing. it is nearby in the next room.
Is it just restistance increase or is this a shield absorbing a fix amount of damage :D?
