Mana Skin is a magical shield that can be produced by utilizing the natural flow of one's mana to protect oneself.
Mana Skin is created more naturally than any other spell, as it utilizes the natural flow of mana. All mages are naturally leaking mana from their bodies at all times, which is wasting the mana that they are able to use within a day.
It is difficult to utilize this mana, but it can be done by people at a higher understanding of their Magic
. If they understand their basic affinity much (Flames
, Water, Ice
, Air, Lightning, Light
) then they can begin to use even uncontrollable parts like the leaking mana. This requires heavy study, but also constant use of one's magic. One can read all they want, but actually doing spells is just as important.
