    >Everyone has opinions

    >then they get punched in the face...

    all that aside I have a question, what are the opinions of those who activly play mabi when it comes to Defense and protection as a stat. Do they find it useful, is it a waste of time? when your stating your opinion please state your race and class please ^^

    >my opinion
    I guess to start it off I'll go.
    Personally I see Defense as useful but not as useful as protection, in the long run anyway. But Both are main focuses in my character card and I strive to always get more then I currently have. Even if its a simple shadow mission or dungeon that doesnt promise to kill me I rely on having at least 50 def and over 20% protection for... "That one crit magnum shot..."

    I find it useful.
    I do not have high Defense nor Protection, but getting there will be sweet.

    When I transform (as a Champion) I know how nice it is, but right now even when in that state I'm not that high yet.

    That and it will be a while before I rank up my Defense; AP is precious

    Love 'em.

    Unfortunately, it feels like mobs have super high crit rates so my protection is never all that effective. However, as a less-than-enthusiastic windmill user, defense has been my best friend for some time now.

    End-game people these day all wear cloth and tank using mana shield like a boss. It doesn't matter.

    Giant has r1 Defense and r3 I think Shield of Physis. I find it pretty useful. Most monsters, even in hardmode shadow missions, don't do too much damage, and I can just tank and plow my way through. unless they use magic

    In elite or even Hardmode SM sometime, you better have mana shield up or you be dead. The end. The average def/protection of most people are just not enough.

    And out of curiosity, what enchants/other things do you have right now to reach that Defense and Protection

    Defense and Protection does affect how much damage you take from Mana Shield.

    Of course average amount of Defense/Protection won't protect them enough from Hard and Elite missions.


    Having these statuses higher is much better, and makes the player less mushy thus making them consume less Mana with Mana Shield.

    Mana Shield is the most gamebreaking skill released atm, that's not news. It's not really worth discussing it.

    I don't find them particularly useful alone. It is, however, worth having at least rank 1 defense to accommodate your mana shield.
