Guardians are devoted fighters who protect their allies and smite their enemies by drawing from the power of their virtues. True guardians are brilliant tacticians and selfless defenders who know when to sacrifice their own defenses to empower their allies to achieve victory.

Guardians can elect to relinquish the benefits granted by the virtues and extend their protective power to nearby allies. This ability makes the guardian an excellent supportive fighter whether they are leading an assault or defending your party’s flanks.
The fire of Justice burns the enemies of guardians. With Justice, every fifth attack burns their opponents.
With Courage, guardians can shrug off even a mighty blow. Every 40 seconds this virtue is active, guardians are granted Aegis, which blocks the next incoming attack.
Through Resolve, guardians passively regenerate health, allowing them to wade into the most dangerous situation and come out alive.
Guardians have a number of special skill types to choose from. Here are two skill types that typify the guardian:
Guardians can summon spirit weapons to fight at their side for a limited time. Spirit weapons can be commanded to inflict a powerful attack before disappearing. For example, Hammer of Wisdom can be commanded to knock down an enemy before it vanishes.
Guardians use shouts to aid allies or hinder enemies within earshot. Defensive shouts such as “Hold the Line!” grant protection and regeneration to nearby allies.
