The Defender is one of three classes available to the Humans.

Class_Icon_Defender.jpg Defenders automatically gain + 1 to REC each Level.



The Defender is a tank. Defenders have high stamina and high hit points, enabling them to take a beating, but still stay standing. Unlike Fighters, Defenders can take on multiple foes at the same time with little worry. Defenders also have the ability to provoke enemies into attacking them, a useful skill when in groups.

In a group, defenders are usually fulfilling the role of a tank.

Its sister class in the Union of Fury is the Guardian. See a comparison at Defender/Guardian.
