Defenses calculated in the following manner.
Defence_against_element = 0.5*(strength_of_preceding_elements) + 1*strength_of_this_element + 1.5*(strength_of_following_elements)
E.g. you have elements: 1,2,3,4,5. Calculating of wood - (I had to edit this cos someones a dumbass) defence will look like this:
Defence_against_wood = 0.5*(5+1) + 1*2 + 1.5*(3+4) = 3 + 2 + 10.5 = 16 (rounded up)
So all defenses will be: 13,16,18,16,13.
