Defence mode is a brand new type of mission map in Dragonica! Instead of fighting through different stages full of enemies until you meet a boss, mission maps have you protecting a sacred stone from wave after wave of enemies!
First, players fight a set number of monsters that attack both the players and the special stone in the centre of the map. After completing this stage, players then face wave after wave of monsters that re-spawn every 3 seconds! After each wave you get to play a special game to guess which side the monsters will attack from. If you win, a rare monster will appear, killing this monster gives you a 50% chance of getting a rare item.
