Talk:Guardian, Dwarven Defender Class (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
I Like it so Far
One thing you should note though, is that by taking this class, you need to restrict the player from entering the Dwarven Defender class. Seriusly, think about it. A player with levels in Guardian, AND Dwarven Defender. Uber defense powers, to say the least. So.. just as an after thought, restrict players from taking both Guardian and Dwarven Defender. Other than that, looks pretty good! Lord Canius 11:51, 9 March 2006 (MDT)
- Well, since Guardian defensive stance and Dwarven Defender defensive stance are exactly the same, all you gain is more uses per day. Of course, you can't "double defensive stance". --Mkill 03:43, 14 June 2007 (MDT)
Walking around the Guardian
This class is a bit pointless. Once he is in his defensive stance, he can't move. How does he ever protect anyone? Enemies will just walk / fly / teleport / swim / jump / tumble / burrow / dimension door around him. So useless. Mobile Stance is only gained at 20th level? Ahrg. Make that second level. Also, it's kind of sad that the stance does not improve like the Dwarven Defender stance.
And please, clean up the wording. Right now, the text contains gems like: "The effects are unaffected." What? "To critical" is not a verb. "magic fail" is called arcane spell failure chance.
And why would anybody want their bodyguard to taunt people? Isn't it the job of the guardian to shut up and save lives?
What I would like to see in this class:
- The ability to select somebody to protect, giving this person a bonus to AC and saves
- The ability to extend bonusses for using a shield and defensive fighting to others
- The ability to switch places with another person next to you as an intermediate action
- Grant evasion to someone else
- Stop enemies in their movement
- Build a shield wall with other fighters
All in all:
I give this class a rating of 1/10. Weak and useless, not much fluff. I'd rather play a Knight, sorry.--Mkill 03:43, 14 June 2007 (MDT)

- I added a bit of mobility, but there is still much work left to do. There are still practical abilities missing befor this class is a useful bodyguard. --Mkill 09:21, 15 June 2007 (MDT)
