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.

      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

              ...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)...
