Spell Shield Information


This was added in Update 6 with the Champion System. It increases Spell Resistance by [x]%. You can put 100 Champion Points(CP) into this passive ability for a maximum of 25% increase in Spell Resistance.


Effects


With each point invested, the increase in Spell Resistance diminishes. That is to say, for the first 10 CP invested, you would gain a 5.0% increase in your Spell Resistance. However, the next 10 CP spent (making a total of 20 CP spent), will earn you only 3.1% more Spell Resistance. This is 1.9% less than the increase gained in the first 10 CP.

As such, spending just 37 CP into Spell Shield will already gain you a 12.5% increase in Spell Resistance. This means you will have gained 50% of the Maximum increase possible (which is 25%) by spending just 37 out of the total of 100 CP. Therefore, beyond this point, the increase of Spell Resistance received per 1 CP used is very small and not as worthwhile.




Build Guide


In the case of most Magicka light armor builds, for each 1% increase in Spell Shield, the Spell Resistance increases by around 100. Since Spell Resistance reduces both Magic and Elemental damage, Spell Shield is preferred when the number of points required to increase Spell Shield by 1% is equal to the number of points required to increase both Hardy and Elemental Defender by 0.15%.

For a heavy armour builds, each 1% increase in Spell Shield corresponds to an increased in Spell Resistance of 200 or about 0.3% mitigation. [1]

      While I would never question Asayre's math, I believe this is no longer current. Each incremental Champion Point in Spell Shield (or Heavy Armor Focus for the Physical Resist equivalent) now yields a flat rate increase to Spell Resist (not a % as indicated above). While there is still a slight benefit to "the first few points spent", the actual "curve" is much more linear than indicated above. Perhaps someone can verify.
