Each formation has its own advantages and disadvantages. No one formation is the best; choose and adapt to different situations.

Pre-defend and post-defend allows a character to take a defensive stance and halve incoming damage before and after her action, respectively. This is not the same thing as the defend command.

For an indepth look at bonuses:
