What happens when a player with an item that has an active Shield spell enacted casts the Shield spell on him/herself? Does this player now have 2 active Shield spells, e.g. 1 in one of their 3 spell slots and 1 on the item?

Thanks!

You wouldn't be able to have two of the same effects on you, regardless of which spell slot they are in: 3 personal, 1 per item, potion, Ability, etc. The first must be cancelled before the second can be enacted. Side note, the effect itself cannot affect the user again in the same combat if it is a 'per combat' effect.

Ex. A Sentinel with astral level 5 can't have an Azeron's active from the ability with either a magic item spell effect and/or one cast in their personal spell slot.

in the same vein of this question but can you stack the toughness ability with the beetle familiar armor ability?

Jim, yes, they can be because they are named differently.

We've tried to name abilities and spells differently, even if they provide similar effects or points of protection, to allow for stacking (or specified when they can't stack) for just this reason.

Toughness can be stacked with Armor, while the Azeron's ability cannot be stacked with the spell. Strikes have been renamed from specialized slays to provide stand-alone damage or in combination with slays and backstabs (though not stackable with flat-damage effects like Whirlwind-30 and AP Blow-50).
