I'm about to create a new character in RO2 and I want to play the Tank role. I was going to create a SWORDMAN - Warrior because this part of his description

Warriors are experienced mercenaries who have honed their skills on countless battlefields.

They carry great swords and are capable of skillfully defending themselves from enemy attacks. Their experience allows them to mow down enemies on the battlefield as though it were second nature.

But, the SWORDMAN - Knight has a good point too

Knights are heavily trained through the Prontera Knights’ strict education and strongly values rules and principles.

They know how to handle ‘auras’ skillfully through systematic battle training and also can use their shields as a battle skill.

Being able to do it, should show a "off-tank" type, in my opinion.

Then I asked a friend of mine and he said that besides this two options there are also the ARCHER - Beastmasters and the Acolyte - Monk that are being used as tank.

It's true this affirmation or even viable? Who is the "true" tank on RO2?
