Defensive Ward "Naught shall stay my blade!"

2
Requires Novice
This Artifact grants you grants you protection against attacks.
Used by Raul Saturn, Created by shotgunwizard22.

a rune-carved stone is worn on a necklace around the Dragon Slayers neck, allowing them to create a defensive layer of glowing multi-coloured light around themselves, warding off attacks and reducing the damage the Dragon Slayer receives. The Dragon Slayer can focus on their Ward Stone in order to amplify the effect, at the cost of a further supply of Mana.

Edit: After further refinement, the Ward stone now provides a constant level of protection, though it can still be amplified by channelling more mana into it, causing a glow of Octarine light.
