Armor imbued with this infusion absorbs 5 points of damage from the next attack that deals damage to the creature that wears it (treat this as one-time damage reduction 5/-). Forms of damage that aren't affected by damage reduction likewise overcome ablative armor. Once the infused item has prevented damage from a single attack (even if not all the damage reduction is needed), the magic fades.
The damage reduction increases by 1 for every caster level above 1st, to a maximum of 15/- at 10th level.
Special: A character with any Mark of Sentinel dragonmark, or with the Favored in House feat (Deneith), casts this infusion at +1 caster level.
Material Component: A shard of scrap metal from a forge.
