Spell shields are spell or weapons use as a temporary shield against an opponent - mob or player. Not so many weapons have that ability but they sure are useful when mining.
Maybe the most common spell shield use is against destructible projectiles such as:
- Vile Spit from Corruptor
- Water sphere from Dark Caster
- Chaos Ball from Goblin Sorcerer
- Fire Ball from Fire Imp
(Some destructible projectiles might be missing)
Items Able To Spell Shield
The list IS incomplete. Don't hesitate filling up with weapons I forgot.
- First of all is Vilethorn. The weapon who forged that term, with his 2-3 seconds of protection as his roots stands long dealing damage to enemy and destroying projectiles. This weapon also has the ability to stun a caster for the time of the spell if it hits him with the root.
- As of the 1.0.6, Demon Scythe can also be used to spell shield, using the fact that the projectile takes a moment to start moving. This one can also be use to protect from opponent and hit him if the space if clear between both of you.
