Greater spell mantle

Spell level: sorcerer/wizard 9

Innate level: 9
School: abjuration
Components: verbal, somatic
Range: personal
Area of effect: caster
Duration: 1 round / level
Save: none
Spell resistance: no
Additional counterspells: greater spell breach

Description: Creates a barrier around the caster that absorbs all incoming spells. It can absorb up to 1d12+10 levels of spells before collapsing.


  • Mantles do not absorb all spells, just the ones that check spell resistance.
  • This spell replaces earlier castings of itself, and it also displaces earlier castings of lesser spell mantle and spell mantle.
  • The empowered version of spell mantle also occupies a level 9 spell slot but absorbs 13-24 spell levels before collapsing (more than the 11-22 absorbed by this spell). Mages with the empower spell feat — particularly sorcerers, who have a limited spell selection — may want to use spell mantle (empowered) instead of this spell.
  • Due to a .2da bug, greater spell breach is not an additional counterspell of this spell.
