Main article: Melee
A large part of Defence is the ability to wear improved armour. Having more resilient armour, combined with a good Defence level, will minimise the chances of being hit. As with Attack, there is a variety of choices depending on your Defence level.
To train Defence, you will need to select 'Attack' from the Combat Settings interface. You can also select 'Balanced' to train all Melee styles (Attack, Strength & Defence) at once.
