DESCRIPTION

This spell grants a creature limited protection from damage of whichever one of eight elemental types you select:  earth, fire, holy, ice, lightning, shadow, water, or wind. The subject gains elemental resistance 10 against the elemental type chosen, meaning that each time the creature is subjected to such damage (whether from a natural or magical source), that damage is reduced by 10 points before being applied to the creature’s hit points. The value of the elemental resistance granted increases to 20 points at 7th level and to a maximum of 30 points at 11th level. The spell protects the recipient’s equipment as well. Elemental resistance absorbs only damage. The subject could still suffer unfortunate side effects. Elemental resistance overlaps (and does not stack with) protection from elements. If a character is warded by protection from elements and elemental resistance, the protection spell absorbs damage until its power is exhausted.
