Stat Goals

Wardens are excellent at self-buffing their BPE stats as well as their mitigations, therefore we pretty much only need vitality essences, but we have to pay close attention to our gear, set bonuses and LIs.

These goals are kept with Essence & Gear planning in mind, as to which Essences are to be prioritized over others. These goals can also be used when picking Virtues.

Resistance > Tactical Mitigation > Physical Mitigation > Vitality

After Resistance is at a good level, and Mits are capped or near capped (with self Gambit buffs also included), then Vitality essences can be used to fill remaining essence slots. Generally, only Tactical Mitigation essences will be needed, as Physical Mitigation gets capped with just cap-level Gear and Virtues
