This mod requires the following mods to function

tristanmcpherson-R2API-2.5.14 icon

A modding API for Risk of Rain 2

Preferred version: 2.5.14
bbepis-BepInExPack-5.3.1 icon

Unified BepInEx all-in-one modding pack - plugin framework, detour library

Preferred version: 5.3.1


Just a little mod I cooked together to change a bit of the balance to a more armor based game. Now with config options to change all values to your liking!
Should be compatible with most things but might not work correctly with other mods that change these items.


  • Personal Shield Generator is now based on 12% health (instead of 8%)
  • Harvester's Scythe now gives 4 health per crit at start, and stacks at +2 health (instead of 8 and 4 respectively)
  • Rose Buckler now gives 10 armor all the time
  • If desired, Rose Buckler's sprint armor value can be changed from the default 30 armor and its visual turned on or off
  • Red Whip now also gives 7 armor.


I recommend to use the ModManager. Or put the .dll file in the BepInEx folder like all other mods. The config file will be generated after successfully booting up the game.
If something is wrong or not working correctly, ping me @Ben_Jammin on the Risk of Rain 2 Modding Discord server in the ideas or general channels.

To Do:

Please also let me know if you have any suggestions! I am open to new and reasonable balance additions to customize your experience (as this is my first mod).
Next major update: Item description changes and capatibility with the ItemStats mod.
