Great Magic Barrier is a miracle in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

The tale which was later interpreted as Magic Barrier.
Greatly increases the magic damage absorption by covering the body in a strong white protective coating.
Said to be a tale of Havel the Rock, arch enemy of Seath the Scaleless. Havel despised magic, and was never complacent in preparing means to counter it.


Found in Archdragon Peak. From the rooftop where Havel the Rock stands before a dead wyvern, hug the left and drop down into a hidden area below. Follow the path to where a Rock Lizard guards the miracle.


Increases Magic absorption by 60%. Buff lasts for 70 seconds.

Unlike most other buffs, this value is the same in PvP.
