Tanking is the act of taking large amounts of damage from either a boss character, or many normal enemies. The best tank the game has to offer is the knight, who gets extra HP per stamina point, as well as a heavy defense. A "tank" will initiate the attack on a large enemy. Once the enemy is provoked, the tank will focus on either healing them self, or fighting with a full support's aid. This prevents the boss from attacking any other party members in the vicinity.
