“Defenders are tanks who use their sword and shield in a melee fight. They can withstand a lot of incoming damage and help reduce damage to their allies. While in a group, Defenders taunt enemies to make sure they’re the ones taking the most damage and attacks.
The Defender's abilities can be seen below:
The Defender raises their shield, reflecting all incoming damage to the enemy. The Defender is still able to move while reflecting the damage and becomes immune to crowd control and damage. They create an area behind them in which allies take reduced incoming damage (Spirit).
