This spell causes a glimmering shield of magical acid to appear before you, providing three-quarters cover (+7 AC Bonus, +3 cover Reflex bonus) against melee, ranged and magical attacks. Any creature that attempts to attack you in melee suffers 2d6 points of damage from the acidic shield. In addition, you may, at any time during the spell’s duration, detonate the shield and scatter burning acid in a 25 ft. burst pattern centred on you. All creatures caught in this blast radius, including yourself (unless you are an eldritch warrior), suffer 1d4 hit points of damage per level (10d4 maximum) with no save allowed. This shield will also detonate on its own if you are ever reduced to zero hit points or less. Battle mages should take heed of this, as a detonation in this instance will almost certainly kill you along with your opponents.
Material Component: A crystal shield filled with perfume and acid (150 gp value).
