Terrain Defence is a Gem in Xenoblade Chronicles that reduces damage taken from hazardous environments, including poisonous swamps, hot lava, and pools of ether. Such terrain normally inflicts damage equal to 20% of a character's maximum HP at regular intervals, usually every two seconds. Physical or Ether Defence do not reduce damage from hazardous terrain.
