So I pulled 5* guardian from those Cavaliers in the store. I've heard that the awakened ability is quite nice for him, however I don't have a tech awakening gem. I do however have 2 5* generic gems, and I'm wondering if he is worthy of one.

    If you can take him up to sig 125+, I say yes... he may not be a traditional choice, but he is awesome!

    I plan to use one on him if I don't pull a tech gem before I'm ready to rank him, but I have 4 generics collecting dust so it's an easy decision.

    I just pulled him as well. Where can he be used? What's his play style?

    I have mine at sig 80 and I already can see a difference in damage mitigation. If you like his playstyle and can commit to the sig stones then I'd say yes. He is very good in many fights, terrible in very few and beyond amazing in a handful of matches. I used a class gem but I'm glad I did.

    I have no tech stones at the moment.... I'll be sure to save them then!

    For shorter fights sp1 then sp2. Do not use heavy or 4th light or you will loose charges.

    For longer fights spam sp3 until you think you can burst down with sp2.

    I've played with the 3* a fair bit so I think I know the gist, but there might be some better way....

    Thanks, I have 2 generics but I'll play around before I decide.

    My Guardian is a 4 star, and he shreds content that even some 5 stars have problems with. @Grootman1294 already explained his basic playstyle, but he's also got some unorthodox utility that'll always come in handy. He can Perfect Block Special attacks and gain additional Power that way, and if his Ability Accuracy is decreased he inflicts Shock on the opponent. He also doesn't crit but deals additional energy damage if he were to, so he's a really good option for Mister Sinister and Ebony Maw.

    He's got a very powerful Synergy where he boosts everyone's Block Prof, and another one with Wolverine where all your Champs can Perfect Block for their first 3 blocks.

    I'm not too familiar with his Signature Ability, but I think it greatly increases his Block Proficiency and Energy damage resistance, to the point where his Block Prof rivals even that of Cap IW and he can almost completely shrug off Energy Debuffs and Magik's Limbo.

    He also gains bleed resistance and also either Crit or Crit damage resistance. This makes him good with suicides, but apparently the high Sig is needed
