[RPG] Are the dice for the Barbarian Path of Ancestrial Guardians Spirit Shield d8s or d6s


The table in Xanathar's Guide to Everything has it listed as progressing from 2d8 upwards while the text of the ability progresses in d6s. Which is correct?

The text is correct per this Crawford Tweet:

The text of Spirit Shield is correct. The table is incorrect. Thankfully, this error has already been fixed in @DnDBeyond and in the immediate reprint we had to do for the book.
