Defense Towns are locations that are attacked by waves of hostile NPC. Players from all factions are called to defend the town from the attackers. These areas also offer recipes for special Construction, Medicine, and Cooking items to aid players in the towns defense.
Ten waves of attackers charge the city becoming progressively larger and harder with Shiva's Blessed Boss at the end of last wave. This boss has special loot for crafting Stage 2 armor and G.O.R.E. weapons. Awareness of your surroundings is the key to success. Keep an eye on your health, and make sure to resuscitate any of your fellow defenders who may fall during battle.
