Full: While you maintain this enchantment, target ally cannot lose more than 5% max Health due to damage from a single attack or spell. When Protective Bond prevents damage, you lose 6...4...3 Energy or the spell ends.
Concise: Target ally cannot lose more than 5% max Health from a single attack or spell. Each time damage is reduced you lose 6...4...3 Energy or this spell ends.
The energy loss can be divided among characters if multiple copies of protective bond are cast. For example, if two characters cast this spell at level 13 Protection Prayers, the first character to cast would lose two energy and the second would lose one energy every hit.
Anomaly! This skill will reduce damage from sources of damage that are not attacks or spells, such as Vile Touch.
