Definitions

Definitions are a way for you to define your character based on what their skills, background, and interests are. All characters start with a primary definition and gain secondary definitions at levels 5, 10, 15, and 20.

Primary Definitions

The most defining aspect of your character is their first definition. This will define the general path your character will take in the future. Choose carefully and review secondary definitions before making a final decision. A character only gets one primary definition, and this is at first level.

These benefits are lost if your character wears any physical armor or a tower shield. Bracers of armor, bucklers, and full shields can be worn without losing these benefits.

Any damage reduction that ends in /- stacks with the bonus damage reduction. e.g. An armor with 4/- on a level 15 Defender will have 8/- damage reduction total.
