Spell SummaryEdit

"A protective shield of swarming insects that damage any enemies foolish enough to come into contact with it." - The Manual, The Book of Charnel

When Protective Swarm is cast upon oneself, a wizard is surrounded by a swarm of deadly locusts which deflect some of the damage done to the wizard.

The spell is obtained along with Necryl and in campaign is received in Charnel's 2nd mission.

Tactical UsesEdit

Casting Protective Swarm will protect the player's Wizard from Stun Spells, Web Pull, and Cage Pull. It will also provide damage resistance to the player, and cause damage in a small radius around the Wizard. The damage done by the shield will result in a fraction of the damage being returned as health.

  • Unlike Pyro's Shield Spell, Fireform, the damage output of Protective Swarm is very small - and the health returned is tiny, so it cannot be used offensively like Fireform.
