4) Defense Status

a. Added defense status

  • On/Off: use defensive skills (for example: shield)

   Defensive skills: consumption of physical strength when released.

  • On/Off:

   Ends when the skill terminates (for example: long-press the right button while holding a shield to activate the shield skill, release the right button to end the skill)

   Damage beyond the defense range (for example: when setting up a shield, the defense range is directly in front of the character, and when the back is attacked, the shield is terminated)

   Toughness returns to 0 (for example: the shield skill generates 100 toughness, and when the cumulative toughness reduction from attacks exceeds 100, the defense is released)

  • Effect: Reduce the damage caused by creatures or projectiles within the range of defense skills.

   Gain toughness and knockback resistance

   Reduce movement speed

   Creature toughness = Creature toughness - value of the edge received

  • Added toughness attribute to the tool

   In the defensive state, toughness is calculated every time you receive damage.

   After the defense state is released, the current toughness value will begin to recover until it reaches the upper limit.

c. Over toughness
