When a shield is triggered, a defense amount
is stacked for use against the next successful incoming attack from your opponent. This defense can block damage during the same turn if triggered as fast or faster than your opponent's weapon. If a shield triggers after your opponent's card played this turn, the defense amount will be saved and used against the next successful incoming attack.
Standard shields block physical damage and aren't as effective against Magic attacks. The defense amount is subtracted in full from incoming Melee and Ranged damage. Only half of a regular shield's defense amount applies to incoming Magic damage.
If a shield triggers while a previous saved defense amount exists, the previous amount is lost.
