i want to know why it is that i put an absorb shield on myself (500) and 2 straight turns, the enemy takes over 600 life from me...

what is the point of wasting 3 pips on a shield that does not do anything

that is total bull

Spirit armor and Ice/frozen armor protect you from any damage attack. (A damage attack spell has the closed fist icon)
Some death spells that steal life, such as Ghoul, Vampire and Wraith are not concidered "damage" spells; they belong to a distinct different spell class (called steal life I think) that has a broken heart icon.

In short, armor will protect you from most anything except death life drain spells. This is by design.

That spell's level is too low. Just like that you can't defeat a Celestian creature with Blood Bat, you have to equip better cards.
