The Bast Statue is a furniture item that grants The Bast Defense buff to players in its vicinity, increasing their defense by 5 points. The buff effect can be toggled via wire. The statue can be found in Sandstone Chests in the lower portion of the Underground Desert, or in Oasis Crates and Mirage Crates.

The buff is applied to any players standing within a rectangular area of 170×125[1] (Desktop version) / 100×84 () tiles centered on the Bast Statue, similar to Heart Lanterns and Campfires.

Notes[]

  • Bast Statue does not stack, Having 2 Bast Statue will only grant +5 Defense

Trivia[]

  • Bastet or Bast was the Egyptian goddess of protection, cats, perfume/ointments, fertility, pregnancy, children, music, the arts, and warfare.
  • The buff name "The Bast Defense" is a pun on the phrase "The Best Defense."
