Agility is bad in Defenders of the Light

Did you know that the Agility stat in Defenders of the Light is really bad? That’s why our heroes don’t have Agility as their primary stat. Each 3 points of Agility increases armor by 1. However, with the change in armor, 1 point of armor doesn’t mean anything to the hero at all.

Did you know that the Agility stat in Defenders of the Light is really bad? That’s why our heroes don’t have Agility as their primary stat. Each 3 points of Agility increases armor by 1. However, with the change in armor, 1 point of armor doesn’t mean anything to the hero at all. To reach the maximum damage reduction of 75%, in Defenders of the Light, you will need about 150 armor. With the right combination of item you could barely reach 150 armor but it is how it is.

Another thing that wasn’t discussed during the campaign is the reduce in attack speed bonus per point of Agility. The decision was made for long-term gameplay. Our heroes will level up to level 60 later in the game when they have a lot of attack speed. Having heroes reaching their maximum (and unusual) attack speed while they haven’t reached the end of the campaign yet is not right. Therefore, attack speed per Agility point was reduced to 0.1 (from 0.2) for the entire campaign.

Now you know how ”useless” Agility in Defenders of the Light is. It certainly has its value, but it’s different. Many items and decisions were made around this change as well.
Before we end this post, here is the teaser of what to come. It’s just a little thing, but you will love it.

Best!
