[edit] Notes

  • This skill creates a Spirit of Shelter.
  • Often used with Displacement and Union to provide superior damage reduction.
    • Shelter and Union's effects are applied in the order they're created. For maximum damage reduction, always cast Shelter before Union.
  • Create the spirit before a battle so that you are able to recreate it when it dies. Alternatively, combine with Soul Twisting so that the skill is instantly recharged and to reduce energy costs.
  • If Protective Spirit is applied on a target before Shelter is cast, the spirit does not lose health when the target would have taken high damage.
Anomaly Anomaly.Armor of Unfeeling will reduce the health loss of this spirit caused by its damage mitigation effect.
Anomaly Anomaly.This skill reduces damage from spells and signets, even though the skill description uses the word, attack.

[edit] Trivia

  • The long version of this skill says that the spirit "lasts .... seconds" while most binding rituals say "dies after ....seconds
