Guardians are defenders that can be placed on Guardian Spots. Each guardian has a preferred home location, receiving benefits if they are defending at home. You will receive the Lion Guardian by default, and other guardians can be received from chests. Each hero can bring 2 guardians with them into a map. Once placed, the guardian is taken from you for the remainder of the match. Guardians have limited health, and can die while defending their point. Once unlocked, a guardian will never need to be unlocked again.
