Effect Casting this spell conjures an invisible, skintight magical barrier around a single target that absorbs Rank points of lethal damage after an incoming attack is successful. This barrier acts like temporary Health that is absorbed before damage is applied, however, hitting a Ward will still trigger "on hit" effects, such as Fire Armor. When a Ward has expended all of its protective points, it disappears in a bright flash.

Multiple Wards cannot be placed on the same target, and a higher Ranked Ward spell will immediately overwrite a lower one. The caster may only maintain Wards on a number of targets equal to her Rank.
