Stalwart Guard is a tenth-level fighter utility power, optimally designed for use with a shield. [PH:79] It was re-written in the class compendium.[Dr398:CC]

It is considered a weak choice, due to the clustering required for the benefit.[1]


This power was updated in the class compendium.

  • It was changed from a close burst 1 to a stance. The stance gives the bonus to allies that remain adjacent to you.
