Defence is one of the least popular combat skills on Soulsplit. This skill is very important because it decreases the likelihood of having damage done to you and it is required for wearing most armours. Defence can be leveled up to 99. To gain Defence experience a player needs to set his combat style to "Block" on any melee weapon including fists. The skill defence is not trained by players who call themselves 1 defence pures.
It should be noted, unlike common beliefs, The Defence skill DOES NOT reduce the damage you take from NPC's or other Players, it only reduces the amount of times you will get hit by them factoring in their attack level.
