- 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.
