Forge Pass – Season 5 – Defiant Set!


So today begins the start of the fifth season of Forge Pass, now notoriously the first two were only really worth it when you looked at the potential value of Chaos Ore for end-game players, as there wasn’t a huge amount of other rewards involved that seemed exciting, and the set was lackluster to put it kindly. However, this time, just like season 3 and 4, the set is very much so worth it, with Bolster having a huge impact, but Defiant is arguably even better!


What’s Changed:

Aside from the change of Avatar, Season 5 remains exactly the same as season 3 and 4 except we’ll be getting Defiant set over Bolster, and below you can see the improvements compared to Season 1&2.

  • Free Pass now gets 5x more 5-6* Crafts, 10x more 4-5* Crafts.
  • Free Pass has access to new, exclusive player Avatar
  • Elite (Paid) has 6x Rank 6 Percantage Stat Glyphs (2x HP%/2x ATK%/2x DEF%)
  • XP boost on Elite (Paid) has moved up or down 1 place since last time (irrelevant)

The Structure, Quests and Weekly Challenges remain unchanged – But the biggest change is the Defiant Set.


Defiant Set:

2 set: DEF +10%. -15% Damage taken from enemy AoE Attacks.

Defiant is an incredible set, that is an enhanced version of Stalwart, however instead of being a 4 piece set, it is a 2 piece, making is a great off-set to pair with your primary 4 set, helping you to bridge the gap in defensive stats, whether that be for Arena defense, Clan Boss, Hydra or even just general PvE content to help you survive longer.

We see this set as a must-get for many, if you’re willing to spend on Raid: Shadow Legends, it may well be time to pick up the forge pass and get yourself access to 200x 5-6* Crafts of this new set!

    Is it just me or does this set look insane for Plat arena? 6 pieces of this would give you INSANE protection agaist AoE’s, combined with something like a Duchess passive or a shield set it could make your team insanely difficult to kill if an AoE nuker is being used.

    Let’s assume I have 3 defiant sets on and take an AoE hit

    Would my damage taken be x*.65
    Or x*.85*.85*.85?

    (x = damage taken)

    Damage x .55
    3 x .15 = .45, not .35. Remainder is .55, not .65. Stat bonuses aggregate before being applied to rolls.
