Armed with spears as their weapon of choice, Wardens use a gambit system to fire off powerful combo attacks at the front lines. Unlike other tank classes, the warden uses medium armour and as such relies on self-healing in addition to Blocking, Parrying and evading. Wardens excel at holding multiple enemies simultaneously through the use of area of effect taunts and transferring threat from fellowship members to the Warden. Most of the Warden's skills are in the form of Gambits, which take 3 basic elements (main hand attack, defensive shield bash, warden's taunt) and combine as many as five builders to create something greater than the sum of it's parts.
