The Avernic Defender has a special attack called “Avernic Defenders.” When activated, it consumes 50% of your special attack energy. The special attack provides a significant boost to accuracy and damage for a short duration, making it particularly useful in player-versus-player (PvP) combat situations.
The Avernic Defender is not obtained through standard in-game activities or as a drop from a particular monster. Instead, players can obtain it by upgrading the Dragon Defender, which requires an Avernic Defender Hilt and an ancient wyvern shield.
The Avernic Defender Hilt can be acquired by purchasing it from the Bounty Hunter Store using Bounty Hunter points. These points are earned by participating in the Bounty Hunter minigame.
