The defense multiplier has been changed from 50% of defense taken into account to 75%.
Following this, a VERY large amount of weapons and armors have been buffed. For the full changelog, click HERE.
This change is to give a larger impact to defense overall, which should hopefully help close the distance between Solar Flare Armor, and the other more unconventional armor choices.
Given how universal this is, expect things to become unbalanced for quite a while. PvP Suggestions are appreciated!
