    Max Def for Upped Homunculus?

    My upgraded homunculus has a defense of 417.

    Is this the maximum defense? I'm basing this thought on the max defense of Dark Force, which is also 417.

    If this is not the max defense, what are the calculations involved for achieving max defense for an upgraded homunculus?

    Thanks

    Welcome Newcomer to The Darkness. Grab a brew :drink: and feel free to raise some corpses.

    Homunculus has a +150-200% Enhanced Defense mod. So first you would need a Homun with +200% Enhanced Defense. Then when you upgrade the Homun (base item is a Hierophant Trophy) to a Bloodlord Skull you will need to be lucky and get the max amount of defense possible. This is 148 for a Bloodlord Skull. Now all you need to do is multiply 148 by 3 to get to the maximum amount of defense of 444.

    Why do you care so much about the defense? Just wondering.

    Is it worth upgrading with the higher Stength requirement just for the added defense? Or just doing it for cool points?

    No. Unless you go all-out on defense getting an extra 200 defense doesn't mean much. Getting a meaningful defense rating is hard.
