Skill Usage

Protection of Nature is a defensive buff spell unique to Priests that can only be cast on yourself (allies cannot receive it). It is the only spell of it's kind to have a counter on it, at 25 stacks lasting for 5 minutes. The buff will go away once all 25 stacks have been depleted (by getting hit or taking damage 25 times).

While this buff remains active, the user will receive a slight increase in their max health and armor, and increase in chance to resist criticals from enemies. Note that Protection of Nature performs worse against enemies with skills that attack multiple times, and/or against several enemies inflicting auto-attack at once, as they can easily shave off 25 stacks to end the buff's effects early. The buff works better when fewer enemies are present, each of them having no multi-hit spells.


  • The buff will maintain it's effects at full strength even when a single stack remains.
