| Following up on this and relaying some final info on the subject from Armifer:
The spell now has a semi-random chance to not block elemental damage, based on your degree of shock. For perma-shocked (and non-Empath) characters, this is a complete absence of defense against elemental damage. For other Empaths, the chance of blocking elemental damage increases up to 100% at complete lack of shock. This chance is checked on every hit, rather than at cast, so characters that might defend against it will see varying results across combat.
Throne City NPC changes:
The platinum cost and timer on use have been completely shut off for now, which means you should be able to forget any spell except quest spells and pre-requisites for spells you still have memorized (including said quest spells). The spell forgetter remains in Throne City and there will be no special transport means provided.
Big cheers to Armifer, Javac and everyone else who worked on the components of the barrier review. As with all things in DragonRealms, as additional dev happens and time passes, we will undoubtedly revisit individual spells and abilities in the future, but as an overarching project, "The Barrier Review" is considered officially finished.

Two updates to the barrier review are going live in the next few minutes:
- Iron Constitution no longer penalizes Empaths due to shock status.
- A spellbook specific focus for Nature Manipulation is being added to the Crossing artificer shop.
As Zadraes said in the first announcement on the forums, there's still some tweaking to do so have patience with us a little bit longer! ❤️
