The Defender is one of various play styles a user may choose to follow. This play style is predominately found in Pets Live. As the name suggests, the Defender works towards getting pets that are high in Defense value as opposed to attack, and gear their skill points towards Defense. With this, they can work towards becoming a fortress, gaining wins from players who attempt to attack the Defender. However, this also leads to a lack of attack strength which results in poor results when attempting to attack other players. The Defender play style is best suited to someone who doesn't have much time to be online and can't afford to keep their health low or to constantly be banking their gold.
