i'm trying to build my spellbook and i had a question about "shield" spell
I wanted to create a basic single-target shield spell with DB+3 and to me it was a bonus to active defenses with a 20 cost. The idea was to boost my parry with it obviously, or boost someone's dodge or block or anything like that. No actual blocking with the spell, quite like the shield spell from the basic set.

However, on Radiant Shield, the cost is 60 and includes altered trait.
How does this work and why ?

thanks in advance

Edit : or maybe it is because SB gives a bonus to 3 active defenses, thus +60 and not +20 ? (i think that's the reason why)
