"Then the druid put two pebbles in his mouth. Was he mad? I soon found out why as his skin hardened, turning instead the same color and texture as granite."Stoneskin is a first-level nature magic spell in Heroes of Might and Magic IV that costs two spell points and increases the target's Melee and Ranged Defense by 25%.
Only moderately useful, the 25% bonus will not turn the tide of a battle, but is good nonetheless. Only use when you don't have any more useful spells to cast or when you really want a to help a moderately high hit point creature (such as Griffins or Mantises) stay alive.
This spell duplicates the effect of Spiritual Armor.
