In a game where Thieves and Mesmers dominate the wvwvw, where do Guardians fit in and measure up in 1vX?

Guardians can be very strong in WvW solo roaming. I roam myself, with the Boonway build I’ve been running since launch. I’ve lost only a few 1v1 fights, and those were fights where I was simply outplayed (usually by a really good Mesmer—I haven’t encountered many of them that are good enough to give me a challenge, so I tend to get overconfident and take stupid risks).

On the other hand, I’ve won 1v2s against fellow 80s easily, won a 2v10 once, with another Boonway guardian from my guild (granted, there were several uplevels on the other side, and they arrived scattered in groups of 2-4, but still!), won countless 1v1s, and at this point can solo supply camps quickly and effortlessly, which makes me too much of a threat for enemies to ignore and often brings on some very good fights.

You have to have a build designed for it, and you have to play smart, but it’s entirely possible to not only fight off, but outright kill even those pesky thieves.

Its fine as long as you do not mind dying. You will die alot to 3+ man groups if you are solo due to not being able to kite and not having enough to secure multiple stomps. You will also almost never get away from groups of 5+.

guardian can easily 1v2 and follow another 1v1
if well played.

Hi there. Take a look at the YouTube channel in my signature. You’ll understand then. You’ll also want to take a look at Amins’ channel when you get a chance.

If you roll Norn guardian and use snowleopard form elite, you can dodge zergs and large groups even while engaged in combat easily, and effortlessly 90% of the time. Simply hit F2, F3, 0, hit 5, press and hold 4, then dodge roll twice while continuing to run, then hit 3, then hit 5 then WP. You will have broken combat by the end of the first “hold down 4” if you have 0 conditions on, if you did still have conditions on, simply hold down 4 again at this point. Ive easily gotten away from 80+ man zergs while in the middle of fighting 2-3 other guys with this. It’s amazing and youre doing yourself a disservice by playing anything other than Norn Guardian to solo roam in WvW.
