Wardens are heroes marked with a purple W inside of a silver square. Their description reads "This hero has massively increased power as a Guild vs Guild Defender." They generally have a lower attack compared to their massively high health. They are not to be confused with Guardians who have massively increased power as a PvP defender.
Defender Skills Edit
Every card has a designated skill that it will use while on the defensive. At this time, March 2018, the inventory filter does not allow sorting by defender skill. Defender skills are accompanied by a rating in roman numerals. Wardens have a max defender/counter skill level of IX (9) and all other heroes have a max skill level of VI (6) which determines the liklihood of a debuff being applied or dispelled.
