Protection from energy grants temporary immunity</span> to the type of energy you specify when you cast it (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). When the spell absorbs 12 points per caster level of energy damage (to a maximum of 120 points at 10th level), it is discharged.
Protection from energy overlaps (and does not stack with) resist energy. If a character is warded by protection from energy and resist energy, theprotection spell absorbs damage until its power is exhausted.
