Immense Defence is a shield technique in the Dragon Quest series. It increases the frequency of blocking attacks.
Making its debut, it is learned with 32 skill points allocated into the Shield skill tree and costs 4 MP to use.
Acting the same as in IX, the skill is learned with 15 skill points allocated into the Shield skill, costing 4 MP to use once again. It is also used by Grim grinners, Bad karmours, and the Majin Spindle. Harmours can learn it once players recruit one from the first half of 3.2 onwards.
Hendrik will learn the skill via his shield path, for 6 points. It costs 3 MP to use and will raise his base blocking chance by 50% for two turns.
