Online:Damage Shield

< Elder Scrolls Online: Combat

This article is about The effect in combat. For Scribing script, see Damage Shield (script).

Damage Shield is an effect which absorbs all incoming damage up to a certain value. It is available from a number of skills, set bonuses, and champion perks. Damage Shields from different sources can stack, but multiple castings of the same spell will not. Note that there are a number of attacks which can penetrate Damage Shields and cannot be resisted. While active, your health bar will appear as below, the purple section showing how much shield you have remaining:

Your allies and/or pet(s) will have a similar change to their health bar:
