      I was constantly dying to low level Dark Bead invaders so I got this spell and the highest magic defense possible; +5 Big Hat, +10 Dingy Robe, +10 Traveling Gloves, +10 Blood-Stained Skirt, and the Spell Stoneplate Ring. At level 21 and 67 humanity with Great Magic Barrier I'm getting 818 magic defense, enough to never die to magic ever again. Don't forget to use Wrath of the Gods and the Ring of the Sun's Firstborn for 1-shot kills.

          Great counter againts all magic spells including dark bead. My PvP experience, if only the added a ring that prevented backstab damage.

            Hey does this have any affect on dark moon blade? I know dark moon is a miracle but I thought it did magic damage.
