Re: [Hourglass of Zihaja D&D 4e] Heroes on a Sea of Swords OOC
Yep, I think you're right. Swordmages definitely do better when their mark is forced to attack allies, so having a second defender in the party is a boon for them. Having one Swordmage built to negate damage and another to deal damage (and both making it harder for enemies to hit) should make for faster encounters. Also will make it a lot easier for us to shuffle our marks around since we're both hybrids.
