This spell causes a disc of dense vapour to condense out of the air surrounding the caster. It acts like a normal shield, but its stopping power depends solely on the power of the spell, not on the Shields skill. The disc is controlled by the caster's mind and thus will not conflict with the wielding of a two-handed weapon.

Condensation Shield is a level 4 Ice Magic spell which creates a floating disc of icy vapour. This functions like shield without requiring a free hand, adding (3 + Spellpower*0.08) to your SH value (max: 19). This is unaffected by your Shields skill. You cannot cast it while wearing an actual shield, but it does stack with the SH-boosting effects of a Helm card and the Shining One's Divine Shield ability. Condensation Shield's effects will end immediately if you are hit with Fire Magic.
