Absorbs a certain amount of damage from physical and magical attacks.


Spell cost: 29 MP
Spell element: Earth
Magic skill: Enhancing Magic (Modifies Damage Absorbed)


The formula for determining how much damage is absorbed is:

Failed to parse (unknown function "\begin{array}"): {\displaystyle F=\left\{\begin{array}{ll} X & \text{if $X < 80$}\\ 2X-60 & \text{if $80 \leq X \leq 130$}\\ 3X-190 & \text{if $X > 130$} \end{array}\right. }
The damage absorbed from the spell is capped at 350. However, receiving the Stoneskin effect from this spell while equipped with Stone Gorget adds an additional 30 damage absorbed, and Stone Mufflers adds another 30. These additional "HP" are not limited by the spell's natural cap; when Stone Gorget and Stone Mufflers are used together, the maximum total damage absorbed by the Stoneskin is raised to 410.
Note that when casted as Accession+Stoneskin, enhancing "Stoneskin" equipment must be worn by the receiver in order to take effect--a Scholar cannot give Stoneskin above 350HP to people are using neither Stone Gorget nor Stone Mufflers.


Casting Time: 10 seconds
Recast Time: 30 seconds
Spell Duration: 5 minutes
