Divine Protection is an instant cast protection spell that reduces the damage taken by the paladin by 50% for 12 seconds. This ability is a precursor to Divine Shield (trained at Level 34), which prevents any damage taken by the Paladin, but in return, reduces all damage dealt by 50%.

- Using Divine Protection, Divine Shield, Hand of Protection or Lay on Hands will afflict the protected character with the Forbearance debuff, which lasts 2 minutes and prevents any four of those abilities from being used again while it is active.

- Divine Protection is the Paladin's equivalant of the Warrior's Shield Wall ability.

- This skill will not make you drop a Warsong Gulch or Eye of the Storm flag.
