Just getting into skirmishes at level 62 (after Moria book 5 forced me there). I've surprised myself by really enjoying it, and I added 10 levels of combat roles/skills to my warrior soldier. I'm a bit confused on how far I need to develop him though and how to gauge if he is compatible with my level. I did the Siege of Bruinen last night at level 62 and the soldier died 3 times but it didn't really matter. As a Guardian I just kept tanking the lieutenants and bigger stuff while the NPCs dealt with fodder and then aided me.
So my question is whether this particular skirmish just happens to be easy and if so how far should I push my soldiers rank? What rank is appropriate for my level? Or are Guardians just particularly suited for Skirmishes and a weak soldier is ok?
