Hello players , welcome to Mmooffers !
There is only one PvP build for defenders' normal mode and hard mode , that is pure Rec . Maybe it is the most standard defender build in AoL of Shaiya .
To a Guardian, this might sound odd, since almost 95% of Guardians in UoF are battles Guardians .
An Ultimate Mode defender can be a bit more creative with his/her build due to the 9 point per level ( Shaiya Powerleveling ) bonus, however, a high amount of defense is vital to any defender, kiter or non-kiter.
Why there is no Wis or resistance ? Well, you will not be facing much magic damage in your career until much later on . Even then, as a kiting defender, you can counter that high magic damage with high hp ( buy with your Shaiya Gold ) . Duals are also a good solution for low resistance if you are truly concenrned about it. Dual fortune 4 and dual safe 3 are the two most common resistance boosting dual lapis around.
So if you have any intentions of PvPing with your high def defender, that you seriously consider getting some resistance.
Thanks for reading and welcome next time !
