Mindshield, what does it do?

What exactly does it protect you from? Is the mindshield from DoMT the same as that from potion of mind focusing??

Confuion, charm, chaos etc...

I believe there are many kinds of mindshield that protect you from different things (and often the description is a little unclear about it).

The mindshield icon on the character portrait could mean you are protected from any or any combination of the following ...

Charm
Domination
Confusion
Psionics
Even hold I think..
ahem... there should be even more... but...
What's a DoMT anyway? :confused: ;)
Where we came from, we don't know
Where we're going.... (even worse)
And about who we could be, we actually have trouble in clearly defining the term "to be" in the first place...

Heh... very hard to guess then!
It's not very likely to be written somewhere... if not in the item file...

Mind Shield can be a combination of defenses against mind attacks, or all of them. If you want to check the specifics, the item description itself should tell you what it is, or you can use an editor like IEEP and check which spells exactly it protects you from.

Mind Shield is an effect from items. If the Deck of Many Things has Mind Shield included ( I don't rmemeber if one of the cards gives you that), then you can use IEEP to break it down and see what it provides.

You can get it when playing against Aesgareth. If you draw the emperor it gives a permanent? mindshield.
