Conqueror Tips & Tricks

Here’s some advice that should make you a better Warden, if you decide to apply it:
  • Change guard often when using chains, to confuse your enemy (can’t switch when fighting minions).
  • You can charge your Heavy Attack, but it drains a lot of stamina.
  • Start an infinite chain a bit farther away from an enemy, then surprise them with a heavy ending.
  • When you enter Defensive Mode, you’ll block all incoming attacks. You’ll drain stamina the whole time, and if you lose it all, you’ll get stunned.
  • Defensive Mode cancels ongoing attacks, so be careful when using it. You can also enter it when recovering from an attack or hit, you don’t have to wait for the animations to end.
  • You can use Zone Attack while in Defensive Mode. Using this in combination with Revenge will make you untouchable.
  • If you activate Revenge just before you’re struck, you’ll auto-parry and stun the enemy.
  • When you throw or parry in Revenge, you’ll unbalance your enemy.
  • You can’t feint as a Conqueror – you have to commit to every attack. You can use Defensive mode as an alternative.
