Heroes use various Defenses used to protect the Eternia Crystals from the creatures of Etheria. Heroes like the Monk and Initiate use auras while the Huntress and Ranger uses traps. The Squire, Countess, Apprentice, and Adept all use towers. The Barbarian doesn't have any defense to summon but instead uses stances that provide useful bonuses to his attacks. 

Defenses start at level 0 and can be upgraded up to the max of level 5 at varying mana costs. Along with the normal damage, etc., increase they get a hidden bonus to the stat modifier. Level 0 gets none, level 1 gets 2, level 2 gets 5, level 3 gets 12, level 4 gets 22 and level 5 gets 36. There is a 33% bonus to damage when the hero that summoned the defense is active.
