Discussion[edit]

Although the description of the spell states, that it reduces 30 % (or 15 %) of the damage delivered to a creature stack, it is not entirely correct. This is due to a fact that there are also other factors affecting the damage recieved from the hand-to-hand combat. For more information, see damage calculation page.
