Mantle of blades creates six copies of the focus weapon that hover around you and deflect incoming attacks. Each weapon provides a +1 shield bonus (this bonus stacks with itself up to a +6 shield bonus; it does not stack with other shield bonuses).
Once a weapon is launched, it does not return, and the shield bonus granted by this spell is reduced.
