    Red face Current Guardian builds

    So Ive been away for almost a year and therefore I am at a loss when it comes to my favorite class: Guardians.

    Can someone give me a quick rundown on popular items and builds? Just so that I have a rough idea that I can stick to and then modify depending on the situation.

    And if you want to you can add some info on warrior builds as well

    I think the most important support changes compared to one year ago is that one year ago you would usually build aura items:

    OLD BUILD: starter + boots, then sov + heartward + thebes

    Today those aura items are a bit nerfed (but are still viable) which changed the typical support build to:

    NEW BUILD: Starter + boots, then jade emporers + stone of gaia

    Watchers gift is a must, londo's mask for a guardian that enjoys large health bars like Geb.

    Past starters its usually blue boots for aggressive guardians or travelers shoes for good sustain and extra gold for wards.

    Sov and heartward are both never needed together, just pick a good one against enemy team comp. Past that anything that helps the team, increases your general protections or plays against the enemy really.

    Crowd Control Reduction is also pretty important in certain situations.

    Winged Blade, people usually get only when the enemy comp slows become too much of an issue.

    Sometimes, getting % Damage mitigation can help survive the big damage crap. Only Spirit Robe passive and Oni Hunter's Garb passive. Oni Hunter's being super situational and Spirit Robe being very good against enemy comp with a lot of hard CC.

    Then there is the under 30% health passive trigger - Bulwark of Hope (gain health shield) and Mantle of Discord (hard CC stun on enemies within range).

    Also, Void Stone's passive still being too good imo even with the recent nerf.

    Stopped using Jade Emperor's Crown since the nerf to 50 phys protections, and using SOV in its place.

    Stone of Gaia's passive (2% of health regen per 5 secs) very strong.

    Gladiator's Shield (2.5% of Health % Mana heal per ability) still strong on Warriors even with the recent nerf to 30 phys protections only.

    Or look at how the pros build in SPL, to see current meta, cos the pros run and test the numbers in scrims for optimal efficacy/efficiency.

    Mystical Mail for more damage as frontliner (be it as Guardian or Warrior).

    Nemean Lion + Thorns relic to counter enemy ADC going crit.
