Defender lvl 3 is an item held in the pocket slot while playing Barbarian Assault. It shows a player's defender level by creating a blue circle around them with the defender symbol and a gold Roman numeral 3. It cannot be removed or interacted with in any way besides examining it. When a game of Barbarian Assault finishes, the icon is removed.
Having level 3 in the Defender role increases the range in which penance monsters search for food.
