You create a crystalline coating around the subject like a second layer of skin. The chrysalis grants resistance to blows, cuts, stabs, and slashes. The subject gains damage reduction 1/—. (It ignores the first point of damage each time it takes any, regardless of the attack's enhancement bonus; magical attacks bypass the reduction.) Once the chrysalis has prevented a total of 10 points of damage per manifester level (maximum 150 points), it is discharged.
For each 4 additional power points you spend on this power, the damage reduction increases by +1/—.
