PvE In this section of the guide im going to show you a couple of skill builds you could use as a Warden to archieve different goals or fulfill different roles for your party or play style. 4.1 Tank Warden This is the normal and traditional warden, the one that the game wanted us to use. your goal is to keep alive your party (and your self ofc) in a dungeon or a boss. the way we are going to achieve this goal is by getting the max amount of BLOCK (max 25%) we can get and the max amount of PARRY (max 30%), as well as getting the highest Health Points as we can. Your main goal right here its to not let anyone die (even your self!) 4.2 Speed Warden Now here is where the fun beggin. As you saw before (if u readed the skill part of this post) you will see a very interesting skill (you know what im talking about) a single skill that makes this build even posible. Yes! its the Stealing Power skill!. as you read before (pls do if you didnt this took a lot of time ) this skill gives to the warden an amazing 60% Attack Strenght (more than a seeker!) and in this section im going to show you a couple of builds to make this boring class very fun! Your goal here its to do a lot of damage and have fun (note that you wont be better than a ranger or a seeker, if you want a pure dmg class make one of em and not a warden lol) 5. PvP (im making this section becouse i've seen many wardens (at least on eu) not doing the PvP aspect of the game (maybe becouse the bad skill kit wds have for pvp or maybe becouse the never ending nerfs) 5.1 PvP Tank This section its gonna be very similar as the "PvE normal Tank" section of this guide but with the difference that now you are useing resilience ferocity and of course you will be fighting players (which they have a lot of skills movements and they not just an auto minion like mobs) Your goal as this type of warden is to annoy the enemy´s dds (forcing them to use stuns,fears,etc) wile doing damage to them, and kinda win the arena by forcing multiple PJS to focus you, giving your party members to acomplish their role without worring about being killed. 5.1 Support Tank I though of this type of play style a lot but it dosnt seems very convincing since there are many better supports in the game (palas druids, etc). Its the same as the "PvP Tank" previously mentioned before but this time with a slightly change of skill Your role as this type is to protect your dds/healers from anyone who comes to annoy them I guess thats it Thank you for reading this and #BuffWD ty
