Hello and welcome to another for honor breakdown video, today we’re gonna be looking at the Warden hero Class. The warden belongs to the knights and is all about the heavy armour and skirt look. Being a Vanguard hero, it’s available without having to use steel to unlock. Classified as being an adaptable and straightforward style of play with an easy difficulty, it’s a solid choice for a hero. Time to check out the wardens feats. Every hero has four tiers of feats available to them, each tier has 3 abilities that can either be passive or activated by the directional pad. You will have to forgive if some of the icons display incorrectly, beta is beta after all. Remember that feats unlock in tiers, once a tier is fully unlocked you move on to the next.
The first tier of feats has 1 active ability and 2 passives. The first feat is Body Count, a passive that allows you to gain health and stamina when your hero kills AI soldiers. The 2nd feat is Conqueror, this allows you to capture and upgrade control zones faster. The 3rd and final feat in tier 1 is come at me, whilst active this increases the renown you receive from kills, but also increases damage you take. The second tier of feats has 2 active abilities and 1 passive. The 1st feat is Inspire, when activated this causes nearby allies to deal more damage and soldiers to attack faster. The 2nd feat is Fiat Lux, this allows you to throw a flash grenade at an area temporarily blinding your enemies. Perfect for making a quick getaway. The 3rd and final feat in tier 2 is Thick blood, this passive causes your hero to be immune to regular bleed damage.
The third tier of feats has 3 active abilities. The 1st feat is second wind, when activated this allows your hero to recover a portion of their health. The 2nd feat is Pugno Mortis, allowing you to throw an explosive that deals moderate damage in an area. The 3rd and final feat in tier 3 is takedown, whilst acrive this causes thrown enemies to always fall to the ground. The 4th and final tier of feats has 3 active abilities. The 1st feat is catapult, calls down a catapult strike over an area that deals massive damage, beware this takes a moment land once fired. The 2nd feat is the stalwart banner, this causes your hero to place a banner that allows nearby allies to continuously regenerate health.
The 3rd and final feat is Morale booster, whilst active this increases the damage of nearby allies. Time to check out the Warden’s hero specific traits. Renown and revenge mode appear to be available to all classes. Light attack combo comes into effect when using light side attacks, if your first attack hits, you are guaranteed a hit with the second strike. Crushing counterstrike gives your top light attacks superior block during its startup and when used to counter attack becomes unblockable. Time for more about the warden’s combat style. Versatile and straightforward to play, a good balance between attack and defence, this makes the warden ideal as a beginner class.
The warden has 3 attack chains. Vanguards advance, two light attacks followed by a heavy attack. Guardians assault, a light attack followed by a heavy attack. And the wardens wrath, two heavy attacks in a row. As always, its good practice to switch guards in between attacks to confuse your enemy making it more difficult for them to defend. When surrounded, press both light and heavy attacks to perform a zone attack. Whilst sprinting, use the heavy attack to initiate a rushing slash. Press a and x to perform the shoulder bash, this move pushes your opponent back and can be used to control the flow of battle, or nudge an enemy into walls for stuns, and off ledges for kills.
Holding x will increase your charge distance. Here is an example of the crushing strike from earlier, use a top light attack to counter. Here is an example of the light side attack combo, remember if the first one hits the second is guaranteed to connect. After striking with a light attack, press X to trigger a shoulder bash. After landing the shoulder bash, initiate a light side attack combo to put pressure on your opponent. Don’t forget the power of charging up your shoulder bash, it increases its distance and can catch enemies by surprise. Use a top heavy attack to get your opponent to parry, then cancel is out using B at the start and then perform a crushing counterstrike to punish the enemy.
