The Warden is the most fun I've had with a class in an MMO in a long while. I absolutely adore the Gambit mechanic. It truly allows a startling breadth of combat options, while, and here's the genius part, only taking up four buttons in the quickslot bar.

It is a truly great class..but not one I plan on having as my main. I still like the class but have gone back to my Captain as my main for having diferent utility to bring to groups.

As for the Level 15 quest...just focus on Defensive Gambits and the Gambits that have Heals attached to them and you won't have to worry about well equipped.

It will be interesting to see how this class develops later in the game though.

I love the warden, I love what it can do and the style in which it does it.

I wouldn't say they are a jack of all trades however, they do two things and do them quite well. Tank (though will quickly be seen as an off-tank by non-wardens) and DPS (while it doesn't match that of true dps classes, it is fairly noticeable. burst damage with javelin skills and sustained dps with bleeds).

Theres not much they do other than that really and I find them excellent in both solo and group situations.

I've come to the conclusion that aside from the ports and a few tanking buffs, a Warden is a melee version of the classic EQ Necro archtype. Its focus is on DOTs, and morale(health) transfer spells. It even has fears.

Its really fun, and not for the people that like simple things. You'll have to memorize combos and plan ahead, there's no random clicking to a Warden, you have to know what you're doing.

Later on their health transfers hit 10+ targets depending on how you set your wardens up, and you have variations such as adding an addition DOT with your xfer, or having aggro tick on each pulse of the Xfer. Its really cool if you like complex and engaging classes.
