This is an old revision of the document!



The Defender is a Job that is trained by the Order of Atlas. It's one of the basic 12 Jobs and is the starting point for brave units who want to protect others.

A Defender's creed used to be “Protect allies at all costs”, but in recent years it was changed to just “Protect all allies” as any good Defender knows they cannot help anyone if they themselves are incapacitated. Defenders are your basic tanks, they are there to get the enemy's attention and keep it while their allies focus on offense.


In the picture on the right you will see a basic layout of this class' starting stats. These are the stats at Level 1. These numbers are not locked in, they will vary depending on your Gender, Morality, Ethics, and possibly other attributes you can set when hiring a new unit.

The letters you see on the right side are ratings for each stats Growth Rate*. An “S indicates the stat will grow extremely fast, while an “F indicates extremely slow growth. The most important stats are the seven (7) attributes starting with Strength and ending in Luck. These stats are used to calculate almost every other attribute, so pay attention to these when choosing a Job.

*The exception to this is Move and Jump, these stats do not grow so the rating is more of an indication of how it compares to other Jobs in it's tier group.


Defenders have the highest Health Points and Vitality. They do not rely on Magick as some other classes do but they make up for it in skill. The Ability, . The Passive .

Fighters don't rely on equipment as much as other Offensive Melee Jobs might, however they do have access to some strong melee weapons. Mastery of the Fist and Polearm Weapon Classes give them some two-handed advantages in combat. Fighters are also efficient in both light to medium armor and shields.
