    Exclamation Hit me!

    Do you prefer a physical onslaught or an imprenetrable defense?

    I generally go for strength, although all my characters have strong attack and defence.

    "The best form of defence is offense, and the best form of offense is one that doesn't involve me." - Dave Lister, one of the countless Red Dwarf books that are available (though not a story one, just a random factoid one.)

    Uhhh, defence. Because, y'know, if you can't get killed by the enemy's attack, at least you're gonna be able to just pound him to submission eventually.

    yup, If you are strong enough to kill'em in a hit or two, there's no need for a god defense

    "A great offense is the best defence," is what some people say, and I say it too. It works as well.
    He had a very ambitious script. I said: “Garth, this is a very ambitious script for the money we’ve got – seeing as we’ve got no money. It’s extremely ambitious.” We were filming it in my garage – I had a big garage – but still it was ambitious to film a TV show in a garage.

    personally i'd like them both good because what good is being able to kill an enemy in two hits with high strength if your defence is so low they can kill you in one...but i always like my strength to be higher than my defence

    High Defense and low Attack is better than vice versa, because you'll be killed before you can really hurt them. ;)

    I think ya gotta have a little of both defense and offense. But it also depends on the character's job. If its a mage you need defense, but if its a warrior, attack is generally the way to go, but ya still gotta have defense. Its kinda like choosing between a bow and arrow and a sword, both are awesome but if yer fighting long range a bow works better, if yer fighting close range a sword would be better. unless of course you had a gunblade then you would have a long and close range weapon.
    You are Squall...
    You are a loner by nature and never feel the need to make friends. You are afraid of depending on someone for the fear that they will not always be there. Responsibility is a big issue to you. Maybe it's too big of an issue, even. It'll just take someone with patience and the will to make you smile for you to open up. You've got a nice smile and should use it more!


    Well I knew I would be...... I don't need anyone...

    I voted strength. Though both are necessary to be able to survive in battle.

    I say... neither! I like speed best because if you have good speed, then a lot of times you don't have worry about either strength or defense.
