Re: Warden Duo (2box) looking for advice
I had a very successful duo with Warden/Loremaster. The Warden's achilles heel is power, not morale. So having the Loremaster to provide power is very useful. Loremaster's also have a couple of heals (which will be buffed in the expansion). The Loremaster can also hit the enemies for multiple debuffs, which makes things easier. And of course, you get to be stun-proof which is wonderful.
When dual-boxing, you need to consider reaction-based skills. In general, its tough to react on a second box. This makes guards poor second box characters due to the randomness of parries and blocks. Burgs are similarly tied to crit reactions. Loremasters have flanks. Captains have battle-ready state and defeat events to react to.
If you go with a loremaster, you will probably miss out on a lot of flanks. So it would be best to go with a build that doesn't rely on those flanks as much. Here's what I would do for an opening battle macro for the lore-master:
SoP: Command (Cheap and quick debuff)
SoP: Righteousness (stun-proof for the warden)
Firelore: Melee debuff (on longer CD)
SoP: Wizardry (DoT)
Burning Embers (DoT and slow)
Light of the Rising Dawn (Damage and Stun)
Test of Will (Damage and Stun--longer CD)
When you run low on power or morale, break the lore-master out of the damage rotation and use a heal or power transfer. Also, make sure to apply "SoP: See All Ends" when facing particularly hard hitting opponents. It will reduce his crit chance by a big chunk.
Running CC from a second box is likely to be tricky, so you'll probably only use CC at the beginning of the fight.
As always, running a character from a second box will be much less effective than having a human behind the keyboard. But with a lore-master, you are providing a lot of utility without generating a lot of threat. It could work out well, and would certainly be more fun for your wife when she steps in.
