hey i have a guardian that i have retired because of 2 reasons, i find them hard to control aggro, and lack of a ranged method of pulling creatures in group situations. anybody else share my frustration or am i missing something completely? i only pushed him to 29 then got bored and picked up a minstrel
suggestions for improving my tanking? many of the quick guardian guides i have found have proven to be little to no help =) maybe pickin up a different tanking class?
My 1st toon was/is a guardian Joincee. It took a bit of time to sort out how to use him especially when paired with my son who had a hunter. I had to train the hunter to let me pull aggro first. Once i had aggro then he could knock of individual monsters.
At level 30 you get the use of a bow, it does not make you an archer, but its useful for pulling one monster out of a group. Prior to that i used a lot of throwing weapons.
I find as a tank your main benefit in a group is holding the big boss (provided the archers give you a chance*) and protecting the healer.
You may find a warden a better choice as a tank, but you have to get used to learning all those gambits!
I still have a soft spot for old Toincee and drag hom out when he is needed.
* hence the often comment between tanks and healers "the next time that archer pulls aggro- let him die"
sounds good, maybe i wont quite retire him yet then. a bow would be nice and he is stuck right at lvl 29 i just find soloing with him to be a bit of a bore since it take so long to kill things, but fellowships always seem to be lookin for tanks... it seems kinda weird to me still though that i dont need to hold every mob, its much different than a paladin in WoW where its so easy to hold 15mobs at once =)
ill just try to continue getting used to it, and maybe need to get him into the kinship as well then!
