Baldur's Gate Wiki

Protection From Magic Energy bestows one target creature with 100% resistance to all Magical damage.


Protection From Magic Energy
When the spell is cast, it confers 100% invulnerability to all magic-based attacks such as Magic Missile or Abi-Dalzim's Horrid Wilting. This effect lasts for the duration of the spell or until dispelled.


The spell recipient has their Magical damage resistance rating set to a flat value modifier of 100%, for the spell's duration.

The spell's effects can be removed by a successful Dispel Magic effect, or from a Breach effect.

Once the spell is cast, a 3D graphic plays over the target as well as a color fade, and a combat log text message displays "Protected From Magical Energy". The target creature's portrait will also display an icon (No. 123 "Protected from Magical Energy"). When the spell expires there will be an audible sound effect.

The minimum casting level of this spell has a duration of 720 seconds (from a scroll for example), and the spell caps out at caster level 20.

This spell doesn't stack or have cumulative effects. The most current casting takes precedence over the previous one for duration purposes.
