The defense stat of your character is determined by your armor and tools. You level DOES effect your defense stat, increasing by 5 points per level, starting at 50 points at level 1. Having high defense stats is important for sustaining blows during battle. The higher your defense value, the more damage you can take during a battle.
The defense value of your gear can be upgraded in the following ways:
- Finding and equiping gear with high defense stats
- Upgrading armor and tools, using either of the three upgraders
- Fusing armor and tools
- Equiping Clan Jutsu's that increase your defence of an item by a certain percentage.
Note: Note: Your attack and defence can be DRAMATICALLY increased in certain events based on event item bonuses or lineage bonuses. You can use the "event edge" button to increase your stats to its maximum effectivness at the given time In the armor and tools section you can see how much defense stats each gearpiece has. Remember, these pages are still under construction, so not every armorpiece has information available on this site.
