There doesn’t seem to be a lot of guides on Warrior going with Guardian/Battle spec so I decided to write one. The Warrior Guardian/Battle is a very stable hybrid class capable of Soloing, Teaming, Dueling and PvPing.
It is important you always strive to have the best gear you have access to as well as a shield and one-handed weapon. For one-handed weapons you want a weapon that has decent speed, solid DPS and high damage.
You want equipment that confers bonuses on Dodge, Parry and Block, this is of utmost importance for your Guardian/Battle hybrid. It is also recommended that most of your equipment has +Str and +Sta as well as granting +Attack Power and +Critical Hit.
I built my Warrior first towards getting Head Smash 5/5 and then towards getting Thunder Shout 1/1 and grabbing Crushing Blow. Once you have the core skills feel free to invest the remaining 8 points in whatever you feel is best for your build. Below is the way I raised and/or will be raising my skills:
Heavy Clash 3/3
Shield Expert 5/5
Alerting Shout 1/1
Shield Slap 1/1
Vitality Shout 1/1
Head Smash 5/5
Guardian Stance 1/1
Offensive Shout 1/1
*You stop here with Ruthless to immediatly go to the next line.
*Stop Warpath at 1
*Now we finish Warpath first and then Ruthless
Thunder Shout 1/1
Crushing Blow 1/1
The other 8 points can be used in Resistant Skin 3/5 and Vigor 4/4 as it improves the healing on Courage.
Below is the way I have/will set the spells/skills I get:
Skill Slot 6/6
Pull Menu 6/12
