Magic Barrier is a miracle in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Miracle of Bishop Havel the Rock. Cover body in defensive magic coating.
This coating greatly boosts magic defense, assisting warriors who must face the magic which Bishop Havel countered so proficiently.


Magic Barrier is sold by Reah of Thorolund for 6,000 souls after rescuing her from the Tomb of the Giants.

General information[]

Magic Barrier reduces magic damage taken by 50% for its duration. This includes defense against all offensive sorceries, offensive miracles, and any weapon that deals magic damage. Magic Barrier counts as a personal buff, so it is impossible to use other buffs (such as Power Within, Flash Sweat, etc.) while it is in effect.

Great Magic Barrier is an upgrade over Magic Barrier, boasting higher magic resistance in exchange for fewer casts.
