Protection from Energy is a ritual introduced in Heroic Tier Rituals.[Dr405]

The caster protects either themself or an ally present during the ritual against energy. The target may provide the healing surge component cost instead of the caster.

The caster chooses a damage type among acid, cold, fire, lightning or thunder. The next time the target takes damage from that type, the ritual is discharged and the damage is reduced by an amount equal to 10 + the caster's arcana or religion check modifier.

A newer casting of the ritual's effect cancels the older one.

Ritual Scroll: The ritual scroll may be cast as a standard action, but the damage reduction will only be 5 + the caster's arcana or religion check modifier.
