Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Touch

Components: V

Duration: 1 minute

You ward a creature you touch against attacks. A pair of raking beastly claws appears on the target as a tattoo, embroidery, painted symbol, or similar decorative embellishment for the duration. The next time the target is hit with a melee attack by an attacker within 5 feet of it before this spell ends, the attacker takes 1d8 slashing damage as the claws rise up and slash at the attacker. The claws then disappear and the spell ends.

This spell’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 5th level (2d8), 11th level (3d8), and 17th level (4d8).
