The Warder is an enduring warrior that specializes in melee combat, defensive techniques, and summoning ancient allies.

The first Warders were legendary warrior-kings forged in the fires of the Cataclysm. When earthquakes tore great chasms in the Mechanism and horrors now lost to history surged forth, the Warders emerged not only to fight these beasts themselves, but to inspire those around them to take up arms in the common defense. While not every modern Warder is as selfless as their mythic forebears, they are seldom found without anyone to protect. They are knights, bodyguards, generals – even bouncers, albeit expensive ones.

Warders are masters of fighting with 1h Blade and Shield, dual-wielding two 1h Blades, or the great 2h Blade.
