Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code - Character 101

There are five different ways to inflict genocide upon entire species of evil bastards. Which is right for you?

Most folks would take one look at this fellow and say "Yup. He's the tank". And most folks would be mostly right. The Guardian is the most straightforward of the characters, and it's clear from his Ahhnuld-like build that he prefers to solve his problems by swinging a large chunk of sharpened metal at them. He's a healthy hunk as well, so he can absorb a lot of damage, and he's quite adept at carving out big chunks of his enemies' bodies with a comically oversized sword.

The Guardian isn't confined to up-close physical attacks though. Like every character in this game, he also wields a ranged weapon - in this case a cannon, which tears gaping holes in his targets but reloads slowly - and a selection of twelvemagical andspecial abilities. The Guardian's specific powers tend to be elementally-charged physical attacks, usually (but not exclusively) cold-themed.

For example, he can charge his shield with electricity or cold and bash enemies into temporary inaction, fire off a poisonous cannonball, or send out a storm of ice shards that blast opponents backward. Conversely, he can taunt distant foes so skillfully that they can't help but charge, bringing them within easy reach of his sword.

Of course, most of that finesse goes south when he morphs into a giant, bear/gorilla thing and starts tearing things to shreds with giant, clawed paws.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
