^ Weapon Defence Armors ^

Weapon Defence Armors are often underestimated by new players. This armors got ability to lower damage done by other players with certain type of weapon. This armors are not upgradable (rare item) and got defence against 1 type of weapon. In my opinion helm/hat+6 with Defence Ability (Dagger): 25 is a must for player killing for every class. Lets say assassin hits you for 1000, with this helm he will do like 750, so the difrence is really huge. The formula of defence armors and how they reduce damage is kinda unknown, the sure thing you can never reduce damage with it to 0. Dagger defence seems work better than other weapon def armors, maybe because assassins skills got 600% damage etc and priest/warriors skills are like 150+250% damage, and probably reducing damage affects only xxx% damage from skill. It is just a guess, nothing sure about formula. Maybe Dagger Def is so great reduce because it reduce damage from each dagger? I dont know. Ah, 1 more thing. Defence Abilities can appear or any grade of armor (even on chitin), but I have never seen chitin for other classes than warrior.

^ What drop Weapon Defence Armors? ^

Actually in USKO version nothing drop this armors. I dont know is it a bug, or they removed it. In other versions of KO defence armors still drop. I hope it will back to USKO. In theory almost every creep can drop def armor, but I got the most of them from all kind of Orcs (including this Ghost Orcs in abyss), from Golems and from every mob in Abyss. Also Blood Dons in colony zone seems drop def armors more often than other mobs. Table below shows what defence type can appear on what part of armor and how much defence it has.

Type Part of Armor Grade of Armor
Defence Ability (Dagger) Helms +3(10), +6(25)
Defence Ability (Sword) Helms, Gaunlets, Boots +4(15), +7(30)
Defence Ability (Club) Pauldrons, Pads +5/20, +4/15
Defence Ability (Ax) Pauldrons, Pads,
Gaunlets, Boots
+4(15), +6(25), +7(30)
Defence Ability (Spear) Helms, Gaunlets, Boots +5(20)
Defence Ability (Arrow) Pauldrons, Pads +6(25)

EDIT: On new servers where those armors are not available you can use upgradable defence armors. Read more how to get them in mss quests section.

^ Talia Skin ^

There is also pauldron called Talia Skin. You can make it by doing quest available at Proconsul in Moradon. Finishing this quest gives you as reward Talia Skin with Defence Ability for random weapon (50) or resist to random spell type (200). The AC of Talia depends from your character class, it is similar to +8 chitin/crimson armor. The worst thing in Talias is that you cannot repair it. There are many people throwing acid potions (-2000 durability per pot, Talia got 5000), thats why I think in most cases using Talia is pointless.

^ Shields with weapon defence ability ^

There are also shields with Defence Ability. They are nice for priests who cannot afford for Chitin Shield (the best shield in game, with lot of Weapon Defence Abilities). Just collect shield for every type of weapon and switch it with your normal shield when need. They drop mostly in Abyss as rare items. Notice that there are 4 types of shields with weapon defences: 1. Dagger, 2. Spear, 3. Arrow and 4. Axe, Club, Sword (this 3 defences always appear together on shields). Table below shows how much def per grade this shields got:

Grade How much weapon def
+3 Defence Ability (24)
+4 Defence Ability (32)
+5 Defence Ability (40)
+6 Defence Ability (48)
