Passive. A character who has purchased this High Magic may defend against incoming Spell and Elemental qualifier attacks. This defense may be used no matter what Effect is called with the attack, but it must be a damaging attack with a number attached.
The character must expend an equal amount of Channeling points from their pool when using Channeling Shield; if they have insufficient Channeling points available they may not use this ability. When using Channeling Shield to stop an attack, the character must call “Cloak” as a Smart Guard defense. This ability may be used any number of times once purchased so long as the character has sufficient Channeling Pool available.
