Spell Shield is a generic Talent that grants a nice chunk of Spell Armor for a short duration upon being hit. It can be toggled on the hotbar so you can choose when it will protect you, but it cannot be toggled while on cooldown. It is a nice defensive option if you are up against a team with high amounts of ability damage because it can halve the damage you take, being particularly effective against heroes like Zeratul or Nova. It is similar to Spell Block effects in that it automatically triggers upon incoming damage, but varies from it in that it lasts for a duration rather than blocking specific instances of damage.
