    Thumbs up Made my first Warden AND ???

    I made a warden finally and I got to say I like it so far though getting used to what the Gambit does can be trying at times.I noticed the self healing is allot quicker and you kill most mobs quicker also.It was too funny when I went for training though when I all kept getting training for was passive and my Gambit heheheh.

    wardens are a fun class and probably the easiest and quickest to level. Due to your selfheals and massive dps, wardens will always be welcome in groups. Bare in mind that you will have power issues at higher levels, cause gambits use a lot of your power, and in longer fights that can be tricky. Enjoy playing your warden and kick some ####

    Re: Made my first Warden AND ???

    I am also working on my Warden. I have now just got him to 40 (welcome the Legendary page hunt), and have a Champ, RK, and Hunter at 65. I used to think so poorly of Wardens, and now realize that they are a very nice Hybrid class. VERY tough, nice self heals/buffs, and decent DPS. However, my thoughts do till remain....a Warden will depend very much on knowing your Gambits, and if a fellowship relies on your tanking, you better know your Gambits (otherwise, epic fail). Good Tank for healers as you can heal yourself very well, but high DPS classes I wonder if they will pull threat. Wardens are good if they can build the threat, then spam the heals and B/P/E Gambits. Problem is that I see is that a fellowship will have to be groomed to carry Warden as a tank as the threat must be built. As I see it, Warden so far is the #1 off tank class, as they can pull the threat on what they grab from the main tank, and the healer can maintain concentration on the main tank. This keeps me on the idea that as many think a Champ is the best off tank, I feel that the Champ is straight up AOE. On my Champ, that is my forte, you hold the mobs, and let me go in and go nuts!! So far, with the toons I have, I love them all, as they are all awesome in their own aspect. So far my opinion:
    Champ = AOE Master (throw me in the middle of them all)
    RK = Major Nuker (Shocking personality)
    Hunter = straight up awesome DPS (there is no better)
    Warden = Off tank specialst (I can hold it and heal myself thank you very much)
    Guardian = Uber tank (Is that all you got?)
    Mini = Healer Extraordinaire (anyone need a doctor?)
    Cappy = Buffs, Buffs, Buffs (Let me twink everyone out)
    LM = Debuff Specialist (Oh no you don't)
    Burglar = Sneaky little crowd control Expert (now you see me, now you don't)

    True, most use RK's as healers, as they do very very well, but I think RK's are underused at their actual full potential. They are the nukers of the game. But, back to the OP, I have now gained a true repect for Wardens, they are very tough, and very fun to play, almost untouchable. However, a player playing a Warden better know their Gambits, and those playing with a Warden need to excercise patience to allow threat to build.

    As you level, your dps is not going to keep up with mob health, especially if you are not spear-traited or not using dps gambits. However, unless you are trying to solo something insane, you will not die. Your defensive gambits, like self-heals, will be great when soloing small-fellowship content, elites, groups of signatures, and the like, but for solo content, stick with the spear and dps gambits (unless you are working on your class deeds, in which case, spam those gambits until the bar turns yellow!)

    Remember, wardens are tanks (full tanks, not just off-tanks, thankyouverymuch), so don't get discouraged when your dps slows as you level.

    Re: Made my first Warden AND ???

    I have recently rolled a new Warden after taking the plunge and pre-ordering RoI; I find it very engaging and interesting. The Gambit system is unlike anything I've seen before in an MMO (nothing like it in WoW) but it's very interesting. I like being able to, as the saying goes, "be a Small Fellowship".

    I've seen several Youtube videos of Wardens soloing level 65 Elite Masters and such, and it really puts me in awe of the class. Mine is still very low level (13ish) but I'm going to try and focus on him now because the class is totally awesome.

    I love the idea of only having 4 buttons but now have to learn what the combinations all mean.

    Re: Made my first Warden AND ???

    Wardens.. Making it viable to play LOTRO on an XBOX... 4 buttons.. All you need.. :P

    Love my warden.

    I've been offline a bit lately. Been getting burnt out on LOTRO so have gone offline and 'self healed'. :P Went back online the other day.. HOOLEY DOOLEY!!!!! Felt like a level 1 in a level 65 hobbit body.. Took about an hour just to get my pattern back.

    I don't think I could solo Barrow Downs Survival yet (Stuns permitting of course), like I used to.. But I'm training myself up again for when RoI releases.

    Hopefully I can afford it with TP... 3,000 TP (A little over). If not, I'll just level some characters and wait the months whilst my VIP turns over the 500/month. :P

    But yes.. Warden = Awesomeness concentrate.. It's why other people hate us.. They're used to juices and they drink it straight. With Warden it's concentrated. It's tough. More in it.. Have to water us down to make us like the others...

    AHOY ME HEARTIES (In the spirit of talk like a pirate day..)

    Anyways. Rambling. No sleep.. Hyped up 2 yr old running around.. I have maybe 2 minutes until he needs my attention again. He just took the last piece of paper from a pile for his art...

    OP.... Wardens = Awesome.. Yes...

    Stop ramble.. Bye...

    Actually, if you ever use your javelin, there are more than four buttons.

    Didn't want to upset anyone with that, so if you're the sensitive type, don't look!

    Fun fight of the week: Solo Ford of Bruinen, where the waves did NOT make the troll boss vulnerable. It happens. I have found youtube vids corroborating this, I was a little busy staying alive to think of doing one when it happened.

    But 13 health pots and 40 minutes later, it was dead and I was still standing, with the daily quest completed. Solo.

    Not eager to try it again, but it's nice to know we CAN.

    Happened to me, found out that the troll was not invulnerable to Morale Leeches (it was a while ago, so that might have changed). Took a while, but with a trusty Herbalist feeding me morale and power, it wasn't too bad.

    When it happened to me, it was cause I had pulled him too far off of the center (had him on the back hill ). I pulled him back down, and boom - vulnerable...

    Congrats!

    Maybe someday you'll be able to drop your R.

    Meanwhile, enjoy the only class that has a phallic symbol as our class icon!

    Re: Made my first Warden AND ???

    Most of the time I'm welcome in groups where I'm at a decent level, I can run through GS like nothing now w/ my moria gear. Also, I've realized there aren't many guards around lvl 55-60 on my server so alot of the tanking gets rested on warden's shoulders. I don't mind it because it's my job to keep aggro anyway.
