The Defender Medal is a special currency used only for buying items from the Tavernkeep. 5 medals are given the first time the player talks to him. To obtain more, the Old One's Army event must be fought.
After full completion, Tier 1 drops a total of 5 Defender Medals, Tier 2 drops 25, and Tier 3 drops 100.
The Ballista Rod, Lightning Aura Rod, Flameburst Rod, and Explosive Trap Rod can be purchased at any time from the Tavernkeep for 5 Defender Medals. The more powerful variants cost more (Canes for 25, Staffs for 100), and are unlocked as you progress through the game. For more information, see the Old One's Army page.
