OVERVIEW

A new character (Guardian) has been released by Njaguar, and its time to explore the possibilities of this character!

The starting stats for Guardian are:

30 str / 10 dex / 55 vit / 55 int

Equipable items include:

Clubs, Heavy armors, and Heal charms.


Strategy Discussion:

First of all, due to the fact that this character can only use heal charms, a dmg caster is impossible for Guardian.
Secondly, due to the low strength and dexterity, i dont believe that a melee type is a viable option. Fighter or Barbarian has much better stats, and can use the same equipment (with some additions of course).

This leaves a healing character, which i believe is the best use of the stats and equipment that the character can use.
I believe this character was made for Multiplayer, and its ideal role is as a Healer that can also tank dmg.


Ideal Equipment:

Wep: Int clubs
Armors: ee / int would be best, allowing more int for the heal charm and also high defence.
Charms: ee heal charms (ofc)


Stat Allocations:


Before i get into this, i would like to let everyone know that a few numbers on these tables may be a bit off, as i did them in my head, but the numbers are roughly correct for all values and i hope can ignore any minor mistakes.

Now, i will be showing 2 basic stat allocations. these are just places to start, feel free to tweak them and try your own allocations.

#1 is a half vitality, half intelligence build, dividing the first 10 stats, and then going back and forth for each level:


Strategy 1 - half mana, half life



Strategy 2 - half mana, half life (vit first, then mana)

** Note - For a more caster based char, switch vit and mana stat allocations for this build, and switch columns 2 and 3 (health and magic) and 4 and 5 (vit and int)**




I believe these 2 builds are the best options for this char class. You can go more life or mana oriented, but i believe that if you focus too much on either one, other chars such as barb or magician have better stats. It is in the melding of life and high defense w/ healing powers that this character will really shine.

I will state once more that i believe that Melee is NOT an option for this char, and casting for dmg is Impossible (no this isnt an opinion, its fact)

A great example of why SlasherJacks is such a well respected guild.

Keep it up mate. Great guide.

I agree melee would not be sensible, but could be a fun character if you went all dex stat points and all str armour/charm. Then have a high EE heal charm for regenless levelling.
55 Int will give a lot of mana and great healing ability against those level 1 mobs.
And the high Vit doesn't need any extra points for solo slashing

oh no arguements that Melee is doable for this char. But i do think that other characters are better suited for Melee.

Also

Looking at the stats for the character, and the items that it can equip, i think that a tank character that can heal others and itself in MP is the best use for this character.

Very true. I'm excited to see a high leveled group with a nice Guardian and how many rounds they can go.

I like the Guardian . However , I am going all intelligence . You are after all a healer . Why would you put stats into vita when you can heal mass life for a little mana ? wink.gif

I thought the Vit stats were to make you able to tank as well as heal. So it's different to a mage. Then again, 55 Vit is a lot.

smile.gif

ahh but if you wanted to go that route y not go magician?

and ofc vita has more benefits that pure life. defense is a fairly large factor in MP as im sure you know biggrin.gif

as i said in the guide tho, tweak as you like biggrin.gif

i dont like dissagreeing w/ you nate, but i gotta on this one smile.gif

gotta throw some vit on a tank character
