Defender lvl 5 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 star. 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 5 in the Defender role increases the range in which penance monsters search for food. It also lets players upgrade their penance horn to a penance master horn by talking to Commander Connad.
