    Wardens?

    Just curious but for what reason would anyone play a Warden in the Ettenmoors day in and day out?

    I don't feel a thing when dieing ingame. The only time I really mind is when the rez is on the other side of the map.

    OP and with the that ranged stance being implemented, they just need to spam Javelin Toss, Hampering Javelin, and Wages of Fear lol. Rinse and repeat.

    I understand they are easy to play and extremely OP but that doesn't answer my question.

    Not playing a Freep, I wonder if there is some reward or something you gain by playing such an OP class that can be shared with alts or something?

    Don't get me wrong, I understand where being uber can be fun for a time but day in and day out?

    I remember playing the original Doom, putting on my Bart Simpson skin, entering the godmode codes and then going nuts for a short while. Sure it was fun for a little while, but soon it got really boring.. Wasn't long til I was resetting it to expert mode for a challenge.

    And what happened to some of the Wardens that use to play pre-U10, like Chicknorris? Back then I could tell a well played Warden from a poorly played one, while now I can only tell if they are low ranked with low audacity vs a high rank with full audacithy.

    I'm sorry but I'd think a Warden would be very boring to play in the Moors day in and day out. They are ignored for the most part by most Creeps in solo, 1v1's and they are tabbed over by target callers in groups and raids. No one wants to waist their time trying to kill a Warden until they are the last ones standing and you have at least 5 or 6 creeps to kill them with.

    Ya know, It's actually very funny, an entire raid pulling off to chase Fenore or Eothaine as they sprint away and leave the Wardens and all the dead or dieing Freeps behind.

    Simple, two-fold answer: Because either A) they don't like dying, and like the idea of an easy self-heal class; or B) they played another class before warden, got absolutely wrecked consistently in the moors, and switched to warden.


    B's the more common one. Sometimes, the B's are also people who fall into category A as well.

    Literally think about every warden you've seen out in the moors, think about their alts they USED to take in the moors, if they have no alts like that, think about what other classes they have played in the past, whether creep or freep, and then, laugh. Laugh hard. Because you'll see that this two-fold answer ALWAYS works.

    So their really isn't something that you can gain and share with other Alts then (such as armor, comms, ect..)? That may also explains why the older Wardens no longer play in the Moors.

    I think that this thread has brought up some interesting points. I am one of the people that is on their warden day in and day out, and don't think that it is particularly easy. This game is the first (and to date only) MMO I have played and my first character was a warden. I chose the class because it was described as being "advanced" to play and the gambit system sounded interesting. When the level cap was 65, I took my freshly level-capped warden to the moors and promptly got slaughtered. Over and over. This discouraged me for a while, and I didn't step back in to the moors until RoI. Upon my arrival, I was promptly slaughtered over and over again. One of the first mistakes I made was trying to have a lot of morale. This does not make playing a warden in the moors fun IMHO. With this latest expansion, it has become much more fun. I try to stack as much agility as possible in order to actually have dps that registers. Because of this, I have less morale now than I did during RoI. I still die a lot, but it is definitely not boring to me.

    Lately, I have been seeing a few wardens in the moors running in Determination with around 20k morale unbuffed. This is not a playstyle that I would find enjoyable. I think that these are the wardens that Gunnor is referring to that get tabbed over by target callers, as they aren't very threatening to creeps.

    I don't claim to be an expert on wardens or even think of myself as a particularly good player, but I think that it is worth noting that there are a great variety of wardens in the moors (with more coming out of the woodwork each day). Many of these may be refugees from another class and like the idea of a self-healing morale monster. Others may choose to go the glass cannon route as I have in order to be challenged. Overall though, I think it comes down to personal choice, and if someone is happy with being an unstoppable (and harmless) vitality stacker, then who am I to judge?

    TL;DR

    Wardens with 20k morale running in Determination Stance with the dps of a Darktide Scrapper - probably not fun
    Wardens under 10k morale running in Assailment or Recklessness Stances with the dps of a poor to mediocre hunter - probably fun
