Grants a temporary shield to itself and nearby allies.

Shield Blast is a Secondary Ability.

Mechanics

On activation, Shield Blast emits a protective blast and immediately begins its cooldown. Players caught in the blast, including the caster, are granted a shield which greatly reduces damage taken for up to 3 seconds (the damage reduction stacks multiplicatively with other sources of damage reduction). Additionally, the blast grants the caster a 3-second combat buff which increases Damage by 20% and reduces Cooldown by -75% (multiplicative), but also reduces Range by -75% (multiplicative).

Only one shielding effect from a Shield Blast can be applied to a player at a time --- getting shielded by a Shield Blast while still shielded by a previous Shield Blast will overwrite the old shield with the new shield.
