This page is about the Ascendancy class. For the Ascendant passive, see Guardian (Ascendant passive). For other uses, see Guardian (disambiguation).

The Guardian is an Ascendancy class for Templars.

Overview

The Guardian possesses many defensive skills that affect his allies, making him suitable for builds dedicated to partying or minions. They can specialize in auras to give them bonuses to defenses and recovery or coordinate link skills for big bonuses. The Guardian also has the ability to summon holy minions exclusive to them: a Sentinel of Radiance that protects the Guardian by taunting enemies and redirecting damage towards it while burning enemies around it, and Elemental Relics that provide the effect of elemental damage auras and explode on death. The Guardian is also very resilient, with access to party-wide bonus block chance and periodic bursts of healing.
