'I am here to help you gain skills that will make you a more powerful Guardian. As you gain levels, more skills will be available for you to train.

'Speak with me again to gain access to my Training Menu. From there, purchase the skill Shield Swipe and use it against a  Training Dummy.'

HINT: Guardians rely on Reactive Skills to deal damage and generate Threat against their enemies. Shield Swipe requires that the Guardian Block an incoming enemy attack before they can use the skill. Head over to the Training-Dummies to the north of the trainer and attack it until you successfully block one of their attacks. If you're having trouble getting a block, try using Guardian's Ward to increase your chances of blocking enemy attacks. Once you have blocked an attack you will be able to use your Shield Swipe skill. Strike the Targeting Dummy with Shield Swipe.

Background
