As members of the Defenders of Albion and brothers within the church, the Friar has access to the basic buffs and healing abilities that their Cleric sisters and brothers use. Friars are the natural fusion of a Cleric and a Fighting class. Their healing abilities make them very helpful to groups, but their offensive abilities make them wonderful fighting companions both in monster hunts and realm wars.
Friars, though offensive in many ways, are limited by their armor, leather. They have access to Evading skills up to the fifth level as well as many advanced forms of self-only buffs, which increase the survivability of the Friar in tight situations. Until patch 1.102 only the Briton race could become a Friar, now Avalonians and Highlanders can join them.
