Class Overview

Guardian Druid tanks are currently fairly well balanced, when compared to the other tanking classes, although they are somewhat under-represented. Guardians rely mostly on avoiding Physical damage and mitigating it through their abilities and their mastery.

As a Guardian Druid, you are relatively equally well suited for single target and AoE tanking.

Guardian Druids have a playstyle that is both easy to learn and easy to master.

Note that this guide focuses on aspects which are specific to Guardian Druids, and general tanking strategies are beyond its scope. If you wish to know more about the tanking role and what you can do to improve, we recommend that you read our tanking guide.
