The SendingStone review

The Shield of Faith spell is a valuable asset for clerics and paladins in combat situations. With a casting time of just one bonus action and a duration of up to 10 minutes, it allows the user to concentrate on protecting themselves or an ally with a +2 bonus to their AC. This can make a significant difference in battles where even a small boost in defense can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

That being said, its limitations include the need for concentration and the requirement of a small parchment with a bit of holy text as a material component. This means it cannot be used in conjunction with other concentration spells or in situations where the material component is not available. Overall, however, the Shield of Faith spell is an excellent addition to any cleric or paladin's arsenal and should not be overlooked.

Shield of Faith is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Shield of Faith Pathfinder edition. Want to use Shield of Faith in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
