Use Shield not Protect Leaders and Wizards

Protect Heroes and Wizards is a core spell when facing wizard kingdoms, but yes, is not useful attacking PC's.

Don't forget the combat attack spells now feature density, so they are doing 250% of base against an army group.  Try it, you'll like it.  Remember magic damage occurs after missile phases and before charge / cavalry. 

I noticed that the description for guarded attack (#101) has not changed to account for density. Is this an oversight or is it not included?

The damage portion of presence (not the shield aspect) considers density.

Re: Shield spell, is there a formula that indicates how much damage is prevented (e.g. 300 dmg * caster level) or some such?

Guys...thanks for this thread. I usually stay way from the wizard kingdoms because I'm not very confident with my ability to select the right spell for any given situation. (Strange since my first character I ever developed in my D&D days was a magic user...he is the one that I'll never forget.) Anyway, keep the advice coming...because I know that in the last game I played I did use Protect Heroes/Wizards against a PC.
