The aegis aura is a Defence-related aura that creates a protective shield, reducing damage taken based on Defence level. It is active for 30 minutes - or until it has absorbed 4,000 life points of damage - but has a cooldown of 5 hours.

The amount of damage absorbed is equal to (Defence level + 1)/2. If the damage done to you is less than 5, it will not be blocked by the aura.

The aura's effects stacks with your armour and affects all damage types. Thus, the aura is extremely effective when facing high-levelled monsters.

The aura is equipped in the aura slot of the worn equipment interface and it can be activated by right-clicking the aura, when worn, and choosing 'Activate aura'. Note that auras remain active even if you are logged out of the game. As with all auras, it will glow in your hand when it is activated.

You can see how long you have before you can use your aura again - the cooldown time remaining - by right-clicking the aura and choosing the 'Aura time remaining' option.

Once activated, you cannot deactivate your aura, you can however unequip it, but this will remove any remaining active time that it had left, and will not reset the cooldown. Instead, the remaining active time will be added to your cooldown time. For example, if you have 5 minutes left on your active aura time and a 5 minute cooldown, when you unequip your aura the total cooldown time will be 10 minutes.
