This item’s predecessor is “Tough Times” from Risk of Rain (1). The item in the first game is not at all like the one we see in the sequel, because the one in RoR1 grants the player +14 armor instead of a chance of blocking attacks.
There is a mistake in Risk of Rain where the item description gets the item’s functionality totally wrong. It reads “Reduces incoming damage by 14%” in the game, meanwhile the actual bonus is +14 armor. Granting the player around 12% damage reduction.
