Defense (abbreviated as "DFP") is a stat that determines how much damage a player takes from enemy attacks. The higher the defence level, the less damage taken from a successful hit. Defense is a vital skill for any character's survival and should not be neglected.
Armor, frames, shields, and barriers provide DFP bonuses when equipped.
Some weapons, such as Bravace, give small DFP bonuses.
Every Mag will give at least 5 points towards DFP, as basic Mags start with 5 DEF. Mags will contribute 1 point towards DFP for each of its DEF levels.
___/Body units also increase DFP.
DFP can be increased through equipping armor, leveling up, or through Def Materials.
