A very high mana cost for archers but a powerful spell. All spells cast against the archer will be resisted, making this a near god-mode against warlocks.

This skill can be recognized as wind rings that go upwards from the caster's feet. It has a rushing-wind sound effect, that is also used by the skill Confuse.

Game history

The spells's effectiveness was greatly increased in 1.10.9, changing it to resist all spells with no random chance involved. In turn, the duration was reduced. This spell's effectiveness was greatly reduced in update 1.0. In the previous version, most normal attacks were evaded too as well as powers resisted, although the archer wasn't able to use damaging powers while under the spell.
