Are you looking for Ancient Guardian, the superunique?


Ancient Guardian is a rune effect in Familiar, a Utility Wizard skill that provides some direct offense but more often a buffing property to the Wizard.

This version of Familiar adds a shielding property; when the Wizard is low on health the Familiar will absorb the damage from 1/6th of incoming attacks.
