About Dark DefenderEdit
The Dark Defender is among the strongest defensive weapons in the game, along with the Moon Mace, Abjurer's Staff of Protection, and others. As with the Moon Mace and Abjurer's Staff, it gives 3 defense points per level, and, as an epic weapon, has a decent level cap, allowing it to provide large defense, even more than most non-plate armors below epic tier. It also provides a dodge boost, health, and slight armor (though less than armors). As a trade-off, it provides less than standard attack and damage boosts, at least compared to other epic weapons, although it isn't as bad offensively as Abjurer's Staff of Protection.
Before level 55, this is a great all-around weapon for any hero that can use it. The Bloodletter might seem stronger but it has less damage, and it's rather inconsistent.
