Breathblock was a defensive spell that could only be cast by dragons.[1][2]


The spell was similar to the shield spell used by humanoid wizards. When cast, an invisible barrier of force manifested around the dragon or an area. The barrier was 50 ft (15 m) on each side. The barrier was mobile, so it could be used by a dragon as a shield. If used against the breath weapon of another dragon, the weapon's effects are either deflected away or reflected back to the attacking dragon. [1][2]


This spell required only a verbal component.[1][2]
