Defensive Tough

Defense Tough perks are the only permanent perks in the game and with that being said they are really hard to collect. They are exclusive only in H2H fights and active when defending fights during opponent's turn (as the AI). They're divided into 4 categories.

18

Defensive Normal :

Increases defensive reflexes to medium, making your fighter to parry/dodge somewhat often

15

Defensive Intensive :

Increases defensive reflexes to high with a FIXED 5% health increment

16

Defensive Tough : 

Increases defensive reflexes to very high with a FIXED 10% health increment

17

Defensive Extreme : 

Increases defensive reflexes to extremely high with a FIXED 15% health increment. This perk is extremely rare nowadays, I fear EA no longer gives it out anymore.
An opponent's rating number will appear blue if he has a defensive perk active.


Overall these perks help you tailor your fights and mostly beneficial in H2H fights especially when faced with an opponent too strong or dangerous with high chance of winning you. Defense perks are best used on powerful and high rating fighters for better outcomes.
