Defiance increases the defense of both the Paladin and his allies within the radius equally. The skill is rarely used; offensive auras are often preferred, and for the Paladin, Holy Shield is often enough to provide enough defense. The skill also provides a synergy bonus to Holy Shield, so if the Paladin lacks defense, putting points into Defiance but instead using Holy Shield can give a large defense bonus without sacrificing offensive potential.
Shielding himself and nearby companions within a glow of holy light, the Paladin girds himself to face the unjust in combat. By standing resolute and earnest in the face of opposition, his faith is his shield against harm.
