Shield From Foes
The Xena’s Gear set was released in December 2014 and is comprised of 10 items. 5 were in the initial release and 5 ‘Legendary Defensive Items’ were released in Jan 2015. They are all combat focussed and most include at least one of the three new boosts. Enemy Defense Debuff, Enemy Health Debuff and Enemy Troop Attack Debuff. See the Guide to Combat Boosts for more info. They primarily use standard materials mixed in with Death’s Ashes, Wax, Cotton and Yellow Leaf. Silver costs are expensive to very expensive.
Purpose: Combat Defense
With two large defensive combat boosts, use this item to protect your troops.
|Lvl. 6||Overall Ranking|
|Enemy Attack Debuff||33%||3|
|Strat Enemy Attack Debuff||33%||3|
Best Combat Gear Rank:
#3 for Defensive Weapons
Provides an excellent enemy attack debuff boost which is the best defensive boost around. 30% Troop Defense Boost is nice but only 15th overall. 3rd overall for defensive weapons but a long way behind the Damascus Steel Fire Sword and the Spear of Fire.
Very useful for keeping your troops alive.
Silver Cost: 99,500,000
At 100m silver this is item is expensive.
|Glass||Metal||Yellow Leaf||Demon Tail|
Two standard materials are a nice inclusion. One seasonal, and one rare monster material. As with the Feathered Fortress Armor, requiring a demon tail is a killer. The only effective way to get hold of it is though Krampus chests which means lots of inferno/KvK events or big spending. The other issue is that the Feathered Fortress Armor, so if you only have one Demon Tail, use it on that instead.
An excellent defensive combat item. A fair way back from the Damascus Steel Fire Sword or the Spear of Fire but still a great item. The main issue of course is the Demon Tail, and most players should use their first one on Feathered Fortress Armor.
