Defenders specialize in turning the tide of any battle. They are often used as the tank of the group, using the defender's two abilities:
Offensive (de-buffs): A Defender uses his/her negative spells to weaken the enemies allowing for the party to have a better chance of defeating the opponent. EX: Darkness, slow, disable, etc.
Defensive (buffs): A Defender uses his/her positive spells to strengthen his/her allies allowing for the party to last longer in any tough situation. EX: Enchant weapon, Stoneskin, Ironguts, etc.
Although this class is strong, attacking takes up 2 rounds of combat due to the Defender's massive weight and bulky armor while using a 2 handed weapon. Because of this, Defenders are more efficient as being a support class than being a striker.
