Book 12: The Month of the Guardian
The Month of the Guardian is here! Guardians are receiving
attention to both their primary tanking role and secondary damage-per-second
role. We hope you'll enjoy these changes and the new depth they bring to the role
of the Guardian.
Already the hardiest class in Middle-earth, the Guardian is able
to withstand relentless onslaughts. Capable of maintaining a high level of
threat generation, only the foolish and overly aggressive dare try to outpace
them. Where this class is weakest is the ability to actually kill their foes.
We do believe that Guardians perform their core tanking role
well. The changes in the Month of the Guardian are largely designed to provide interesting
and viable alternative playstyles for the class while addressing core concerns
such as repair costs and offensive stances.
