What does Defend do anyway?

Postby Lord Oddeye sama » Sat Aug 24 2013 6:46pm

I tried using defend against an enemy while they slowly died of poison, but I took about as much damage range from their attacks as without defend... Doesn't help with spells, doesn't help with physical damage, doesn't noticeably help evading attacks/preventing status effects...

And the worst of all? Defend fails. Literally:

personally if defend isn't going to work 100% of the time it is better to attack and try to kill your enemy

Well, yes, if it's not doing anything then what's the point of it being there. Especially if it can screw you over, as it has done. There's got to be some benefit to its use...

just out of curiosity has this been fixed? I haven't tried it yet, but i considered it, don't want to do it if it doesn't do anything.

Still only worth it if you are only doing 1 damage but have the enemy poisoned.

Defence gives an 80% chance of the damage being halved, 10% chance of no damage and 10% chance of defence failing, ie full damage.
