LoTRO Lord of the Rings Online Guardian

The Guardian is the main tank class of Lord of the Rings Online. Guardians specialize on drawing attacks onto themselves, and exploiting the mistakes of enemies. Skilled with the use of sword and shield, and capable of equipping the heaviest armor, Guardians can take major damage without falling, but skills for blocking, parrying, and evading attacks usually mean they won’t have to.

In party play, a Guardian will use taunts and attacks to keep aggro off of more vulnerable party members. Also, since the Guardian’s best attacks retaliate against enemies only when attacked, it’s best for the guardian to maintain the enemy’s attention.

This Class is available to Men, Elves, Dwarves, and Hobbits
