Defender is a Class in King Arthur: Knight's Tale. Defenders excel at staying alive on the battlefield because of their use of Heavy Armour and Block. This allows them to mitigate much of the damage that is dealt to them, and when combined with high Hit Points, they are nearly impossible to kill. Defenders are the "Tank" Class of King Arthur: Knight's Tale, and they should be out front soaking up damage instead of your other Heroes.

Defender Notes & Tips

  • Position your Defender somewhere it can block the path of enemies, and equip it with items that provide Armour return, such as Scroll of Victory.
  • Lighten Armour is a fantastic Mastery to take since it allows you to wear better Armour while reducing the Armor Penalty to Action Points by 1.
