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.

      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 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)...
