  • A very handy spell for boss battles and can save you life, though it is not very effective if there is damage over time effects in the boss battle.
  • Does not work on fall damage.
  • Does not cancel poison, making it useless against it.
  • This spell does not increase in casts with Attunement.
  • Hexer's Hood, Saint's Hood, and Northern Ritual Band gives one more cast.
  • The Crown of the Old Iron King will restore the charge every two minutes.
  • At 50 faith the duration is roughly 4 minutes and 2 seconds, and can be extended beyond that with Lingering Dragoncrest Ring.
  • 60 seconds appears to be the minimum.
