After taking a break from playing my warden for quite some time, I've now gotten all the combo gambit builders (spear+spear, spear+shield, etc...). I'm starting to realize the class is going to get a lot more complex and it's probably going to feel awkward actually using my setup, which is 1-3 for the single gambit builders, then my combo builders are Shift+1-3, Q E R, Z X C. It's the only way I really see getting all my gambits on my keyboard in a way that slightly makes sense.
I had no problem memorizing my gambits before and keeping my buffs up and such. So I guess it's possible that I could learn the new keys and build gambits with the combos competently... But would memorizing every combination of those 12 keys just to use 80% of my abilities really be worth it in the end? How does warden stack up with other classes, because it seems like something with such a high barrier to entry and complex as it is should be able to harvest the fruits of their labor and preform above and beyond the competition. Is a good warden who is able to do their job, keep up their buffs, anticipate what they need, and just overall play good highly sought after, or do they end up just being comparable to other easier to play classes that can play competently.
Not trying to bash any other classes or anything I'm just wondering. Really starting to seem like the extra complexity is there just for people who really want it, and not because it ends up being a more powerful class when played properly
