Defensive fighting directs your character to focus primarily on blocking attacks. This mode will cause your character to take less damage, but they will also deal less damage when attacking a creature or another player.
Defensive mode is used the most in the following situations:
- As a Knight when blocking for another player.
- If a Knight or Paladin are training.
- Sorcerers and Druids should use this mode all the time. Defensive mode does not affect the damage dealt by the wand or rod, so defensive mode will keep their Character from taking too much damage without affecting their attacks.
