Pierce Shield not only lowers the target creatures Magic Resistance, but it also instantly dispels one spell protection of any level.


Pierce Shield
When this spell is cast, it launches a massive attack on an enemy wizard's spell defenses. The target's Magic Resistance will be lowered by 10% + 1% per level of the caster. Next, Pierce Shield will cancel one spell protection of any level. For example, if this spell was cast by a 15th-level wizard, the target creature would lose 25% Magic Resistance from its current total, reducing it to 0 if less than that remains, as well as canceling one spell protection if the Mage currently has one. The list of spells that this includes: Minor Spell Deflection, Minor Spell Turning, Spell Deflection, Spell Turning, Minor Globe of Invulnerability, Spell Immunity, Globe of Invulnerability, Spell Trap, and Spell Shield. Magic Resistance does not effect this spell, nor do any of the spell protections listed above. The resistance remains lowered for 1 round per level of the caster. It cannot be dispelled.
