Defense (boost)

The Defense Boost is a feature of some buildings and items to increase the defense value of units defending the city by a certain percentage. The defense boost can also be activated from the Friends Tavern by paying for it with Tavern Silver.

The defense boost only benefits the defending units, offensive units will not be affected. To increase the stats of the offensive units players may use the attack boost.

When having multiple defense boosts, either from buildings or from items, those percentages are stacked. Then the unit's base defense value is increased by the result.
