Nayru's Ward is an Expert level Restoration Spell. While concentrating, it slightly heals the caster while projecting a protective ward that reflects incoming spells, with a chance to absorb their power. Nayru's Ward is learned by crafting and reading the Spell Tome: Nayru's Ward, which requires that the player already know Nayru's Love.

Nayru's Ward is required for Nayru's Blessing and Nayru's Shield.

Background and Inspiration Edit

Nayru's Ward was originally included in the standalone Golden Goddess Spells mod before being integrated into Relics of Hyrule. It was included to make Nayru's Love more versatile and to allow the player to use the reflective ward effect from the mirror shields as a spell.

Nayru's Ward takes no direct inspiration from a spell from Zelda canon other than effects of the mirror shields. However, it is similar to the Reflect spell from The Adventure of Link. This similarity was unintentional.

The EditorID for the spell tome's recipe is "RecipeNayrusLallaWard" in reference to actress and author Lalla Ward, who played Romana II and Astra of Atrios in Doctor Who.
