Thanks for the guide! I do not have a Guardian, I merely read the thread to get some insight on the tanking class since one Guardian in our guild is having some trouble with AOE threat. Quick question about that: excluding taunts, I assume the best way to generate/hold aoe threat is the following (leaving out force builders and whatnot). Is this correct?

Force Sweep (targets receive 4 stacks of sunder armor)
Sundering Strike (target receives 1 stack of sunder armor)
Guardian Slash (applies high threat to your target plus 2 additional nearby targets)

At this point some mix of hilt strike to hold any guys not affected by Guardian Slash's debuff and additional force sweeps is ideal.

Do I have the right idea? Trying to understand the ideal mechanic before I go and figure out what our guy is doing. Thanks!

Can you please fix the build in section 4.2? It's only showing 31/2/4 points, missing a few
Thanks

I'm still a newbie, and don't have a lot of experience, but have been doing a ton of reading on the subject so I can learn as I level and really understand the class and be ready for Endgame when I get there. Everything I've read says you've hit the nail on the head.

Amazing, wonderful thread. Such great info in here, especially for players new to MMOs and the Tank. Only critique I can make is that it needs to be updated to reflect the most recent additions to the game. Great work!

Handy guide, has already proved useful to my baby guardian.

Could use a bit of an update though, some of the talent builds are broken due to updates.
