"The Wardens: members of an ancient order...fallen into dust. Sworn to defend the weak, masters of the longsword. Their origins lost to history; still they fight for what is right. Driven by duty, devoted to their people... but only a few may join their order."


Not to be confused with the single player character: The Warden

Wardens are a playable hero class in For Honor.

OverviewEdit

The Wardens are powerful, noble warriors dedicated to the defense of their land and their people. Striking a balance between defense and offense, wardens wear partial plate armor with chainmail and leather. Wardens wield massive two-handed longswords for slashing enemies and blocking attacks. Trained to be proud, loyal, and brilliant diplomats, the Wardens are expected to embody the highest values of Knighthood. Many set out to achieve this, few do. [1]

ArmorEdit

The Warden's default armor is a set of interwoven metal plates atop chainmail, topped by a visored barbuta helmet to protect against a stray arrow or blade strike, and completed by segmentation along the torso, arms, and legs to provide greater dexterity in battle.

WeaponEdit

Longsword - This two-handed longsword is a two-edged sword with a leather-wrapped pommel. They remain versatile weapons in spite of their size, offering a balance of offense and defense. These fine blades are the signature weapons of the Wardens of the Iron Legion.

TriviaEdit

  • The Warden's "Hilt Strike" execution is a historically accurate technique known as Mordhau, or murder-stroke. One holds the sword inverted (using a special gripping style to avoid cutting their own hands) and strikes with the hilt of the sword as an improvised bludgeon. Similar to wielding a maul, this maneuver allowed knights to hammer through thick, heavy armor made to be impervious to cutting attacks.
  • The Warden's helmets hail from the 13th to 15th centuries. These helmets include: visored barbuta, great helm, and the visored sugarloaf.
  • The Warden's "Blade Homage" emote is a reference to the Marvel character Blade; more specifically to the live action version portrayed by Wesley Snipes. The action mirrors Blade's pose on the poster for Blade 2.
  • The Warden's side guard stances are inspired from the pflug stance, a staple of basic medieval swordsmanship dating back to master Liechtenauer in the 1380s.[2]
  • The Warden's top guard stance is inspired by the Schlüssel stance, a stance in which you can easily deploy the krohn or the Einhorn strike.
  • The armor that the warden sports seems to resemble early 14th century armor.

QuotesEdit

  • Latin: "Miserum!" – English: "Wretched!"
    • Male Warden, during Shoulder Bash
  • Latin: "Te secabo!" – English: "I will cut you to pieces!" ("I will sever/chop you!")
    • Female Warden, during Shoulder Bash
  • Latin: "Peri!" – English: "Die!/Perish!"
    • Female Warden, successful Crushing Counterstrike deflect
  • Latin: "Incumbuī!" – English: "I bring my sword down upon you!"
    • Male Warden, successful Crushing Counterstrike deflect
      • There is no direct translation of incumbuī to English. It is the first person singular form of incumbō, which holds a number of meanings but in context it means to put pressure on or to bring down upon or to apply force or put pressure on through attack.
