Im a bit confused why nobody realized this before. But again i just realized it myself now so i guess its fair. Guardian is basically the Warden from Blade and Soul. I dont entirely get where the barbarian/viking idea came from. Just because she is wearing a dead bear or whatever yielding an axe with a shield doesnt automatically make a her a barbarian/viking. Knights used shields too? Barbarians used swords too? And literally everyone in freezingly cold climates wore animal fur since, guess what, its fking cold. Also PS: Well that would have been the artists job though. Not the job of the game designers.
