If You Are Not Good At Combat, Create Lv3

These foods allows you to increase your chance to live. So if you are a player that does not do well in combat then create lots of Lv3 since it has the longest effect time.

tipsTips!!DEF Lv3 has the same DEF level as gear of 24! Also if you add it to armor then it will increase DEF even more so it will be great DEF.

Lv3About DEF 24 (6 extra Hearts)
DEF Recipe

▲Even when you are not wearing any armor, with DEF Lv3, you can endure a Silver Bokoblin (holding a long stick) attack with just a decrease of 5 Hearts.

Damage Calculation & Combat Tips

(Enemy ATK Power + Weapon ATK Power)ー Link's DEF Power

With the enemy's motion, the damage will change, but most of the calculation of the damage is fixed.

The Damage Will Not Be 0

Even if Link's DEF is above the enemy's ATK, the damage will not be 0, but the Heart will be decreased by 1/4.

Think About Enemy's Weapon

Increasing your DEF is important, but if you are fainting in the game, then it is also important to get rid of the enemy's weapon. If it is a mob enemy like the Silver Bokoblin, then you can shock the enemy to drop its weapon which will make fighting a lot easier.
