Skill type             :  Mastery
Base Experience Cost   :  557
==============================================================================
Protecting a party from the blows of their enemies is a hard, thankless task. 
Doing so well takes training and practice.  That's where this skill comes in. 
With this skill, party members may attempt to protect the party members who
stand behind them.  The more people being protected, the more training this
takes.  Obviously, different guilds gain different techniques, and thus they are
not all equally efficient.  Warrior, being the biggest and baddest tanks, are,
of course, unrivaled in their abilities.

Please note that in the case of shapeshifters, ursine forms can make use of the
training in a 'normal' way, whereas canine forms tank better the more of them
that there are. Other shapeshifter forms do not have the ability to tank at all.

Also note that necromancer familiars do need this skill to properly tank as
well.

You feel as though you could safely tank for 10 people.
