      If you want to give your allies some fire negation this is the only option you have. Maybe dlc will solve this issue

        Good for casters who don’t want to have all 5 or so high level buffs in their spell slots. For str/fth melee however, you should have all buff types. Golden vow against other melee builds, erdtree protection against dex or other faith, dragon bolt blessing for status builds and so on and so forth. Barrier of Gold is definitely the most important to have tho. Lords divine fortification and fame protect me can be sacrificed since fire/holy builds are rarer and you’re already massively resistant to fire by leveling vigor/str. Tree sentinel armor is also very high fire negation and so is prophet starting attire. Golden land ash let’s you buff/heal/chug at any point mid combat. Have fun fellow paladins

          For STR+FTH users, just use the Faith-knot Crystal Tear, so you can comfortably have 25 faith while still being able to use this incredible spell in boss fights or PVP.

            This is a great spell to be used against other faith users since they have multiple types of damage like lightning , holy , and fire

              I like Paladin`s build.
              With Protection and Golden Vow you can get 50% resistance for all stats without any problems.
              And if you use defence talisman`s even 80%.
              Don`t forget about alchemist bubble, hah.

                For Those Having Trouble Finding It; Go To End of The Bridge (Where you first find Gold Mask) Then Look Bellow To The East, You Should See It On Top of A Square Stone Platform.

                • Anonymous

                  For anyone who is having trouble finding this, it's on a stone platform on the top of the cliff East of Goldmask.

                    Would have been much better if it was as powerful as great magic barrier in ds2 (there it did the same thing but with much higher numbers) considering how much damage spells and incantations can do in this game with elemental infused weapons not far behind...

                      In Comparison:
                      - Protection of the Erdtree: 30% to Magic , Fire, Lightning and Holy damage.
                      - Elemental Fortification: 35% to the respective element.
                      - Barrier of Gold: 60% to Magic only.
                      - Golden Vow: 15% to Magic , Fire, Lightning and Holy damage.
                      - All of them stack with golden vow but not each other.

                        Increases all non-physical negation by 30%. Weaker then the element-specific fortification spells, but excellent when facing multiple elements or unsure of what to bring. It does stack with Golden Vow.

                          it's on Altus Plateau, (-81,91) coordinates, dropped by a Tear Scarab on a platform near the broken bridge. South of East Windmill Pasture.
