Hello and welcome! My name is Ladispute and I am The Watchmen's PvP tank! I was recruited for this position and have lived, breathed and played it since the creation of my Guardian. I loooooooove tanking. I like being the person people can depend on, never dying and most importantly I love HP. Seriously. Love it. Maaaaaaybe a little too much, but we'll get to that later. Basically what Iím saying is this guide comes from a veteran PvPer and a diehard Defensive Guardian, and will contain all of my knowledge about that specific role of the class.

INDEX
[o] Intro
- Hello!
[o] Why a Defensive Guardian?
- Why should you be a Defensive Guardian?
[o] Builds
- Review of the 3 top builds for Defensive Guardians.
[o] Gear
- Piece by piece analysis of gear and how to make it optimal.
[o] Play Style
- My take on how you should play the class and use each ability.
[o] Extras
- Stims, Grenades, Datacrons, Companions
[o] Conclusion
- Good luck!

Well, hope you enjoy it and good luck! If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'd be glad to help you out!

An excellent guide. Each time I think I know the class inside out, it's a very pleasant surprise to learn something that I wasn't aware of before.

good guide - but the subject should say "PVP" because I didnt see anything about pve.

So i guess the word "whole" still kinda left me empty.

True, the title might not say it but the intro lets people know what they're in for so they can decide whether they want to continue reading or not. The "whole" part is just an inside joke with my guild.

Quick question, why in your build do you have points put into Slash for Shii-Cho if you're in Soresu all the time?
EDIT: Nvm the link I clicked was wrong haha
