Shield of Light

3rd-level abjuration

Casting Time: 1 bonus action

Range: Self (30-foot-radius sphere)

Components: V, S, M (a small parchment with a bit of holy text written on it)

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You create a glowing shield of brilliant daylight that you wield as you would a normal shield (you cannot wield a normal shield and this spell shield at the same time). The shield counts as a divine focus, fills a 30-foot radius with bright light, and sheds dim light for an additional 30 feet. If any of this spell’s area overlaps with an area of darkness created by a spell of 2nd level or lower, the spell that created the darkness is dispelled.

Like a physical shield, the shield of light grants you +2 to your AC for the duration.

Undead creatures have disadvantage on attacks against you.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, an undead creature that strikes you in melee takes 1d6 radiant damage for each slot level above 3rd (1d6 radiant damage for a 4th-level slot, 2d6 for a 5th-level slot, and so on).
