A skill on the Jedi skill trees. This defensive skill uses 10 Force points, has an instant cast effect, and a 12 second cooldown period. The skill creates a shield with 8 charges that increase the chances for an existing kinetic defense to block an attack by 15% for 20 seconds. Each time the block is effective, the ward loses 1 charge, but using the skill does not break Stealth effects. [1]
