A wild mage used this spell to protect themself during a surge of magical energy. The spell did not protect the caster from a wild surge caused by another caster's spell. The spell did not differentiate between negative or positive effects of a wild surge, the caster was protected from both. The spell only protected the caster, anyone in their vicinity was still at risk. It was often cast after the Nahal's reckless dweomer spell.
