A lot of factors can go into what is happening. Are you using sword and board, or 2Hander? What stance are you using? What type of skirm soldier do you have?
If you're using sword and board, perhaps having an archer or sage as your skirm soldier? If you're using 2Hander and Overpower stance, perhaps an herbalist? Having mitigation and/or mastery scrolls, vit or might food, regen food, etc.. can help as well.
Guards can be quite survivable, so if you're having this much of an issue, there could be something you're missing. No worries though, it took me FOREVER to figure out what in the world I was supposed to be doing. Talking with kinnies, running some group stuff, and talking with other guards can help figure out what is going on.
If you're on Riddermark, I'm always willing to help out with any of my alts.
Good luck, and happy hunting!
