Denial is a legendary shield in Diablo III. It requires character level 12 to drop.

Prior to patch 2.2, its only distinct feature was a guaranteed roll for reduction of status effects on a player. After 2.2.0, it gained a unique affix that generates charges with each cast of Sweep Attack. Next cast the Crusader makes will consume these charges to increase damage of the skill, and generate new ones, one per enemy hit. Notably, these charges last indefinitely until used by the Crusader's next cast of Sweep Attack.
