How to learn



Granted by the following items:


  • Also granted to Warlocks who choose the Eldritch Invocation Armour of Shadows Armour of Shadows at level 2+. This version of the spell can only target self, and doesn't expend Spell Slots.
  • You can cast this spell on all party members then dismiss the caster from the party and this buff will persist.
    • If cast by a Wizard, this spell must remain Prepared by the party member who cast it; removing Mage Armour from the caster's Prepared Spells list will immediately remove the buff from all party members whom the caster applied it to. If applied by using (not scribing) a scroll, the caster does not need to keep this spell Prepared to maintain the buff.
  • If a party member who has Mage Armour equips a piece of Armour, the buff will be removed. Mage Armour will not be reapplied when unequipping that Armour; it will need to be cast on them once more.
