A classic class of characters with a sword and a shield is most likely the main product of the RPG genre. Crusader from MMORPG Blas Unleashed, in the focus of the new video from Bandai Namco and Neowiz.
Another way to give the class of sword and shield to use some bizarre PR:
With a sword and shield, a crusader can easily kill enemies with cruel and timely blows. The knightly armor and the shield are additional protection, it is thanks to this that the crusader prefers to act close and personally in order to harm the enemy and translate attention to himself. Crusader is a wonderful means of a strong attack and reliable protection.
In fact, the crusader seems to be an active fighting hero in Bless Unleashed, which you can see in the video below.
