While you're fighting enemies, you also need to make sure your defensive capabilities are also up to snuff. The question is, how would you go about it? Would you prefer to rely on your physical agility? Or would you rather trust in the steel you're wearing?
Whatever you choose, it will be the right one for as long as you aren't dead.
These are the skills revolving around defense:
Light Armor: Acrobatics. A skill tree focused towards speed, mobility, and utility.
Medium Armor: Do the deeps. A skill tree focused towards dealing damage and stamina regeneration.
Heavy Armor: Tank harder. A skill tree focused towards protection and damage mitigation, relying on durability to withstand withering assaults.
Block: The last blow matters, not the first. A skill tree focused on blocking and counterattacking while in Parry/Block mode.
