Since Warriors lack the protection boon they are pretty bad as node defenders. You can still survive for a while but you will die faster then Guardian, Elementalist, Engineer, Mesmer and Necromancer. Also you will probably not outlast any other class. More defensive warriors work, but as a support and/or cc addition in team fights, I do not recommenct using a warrior as node defense for a long period.

It does work, you're able to 1v1 anyone and finish with 100% HP by playing a toughness healing shouts warrior. You can also hold your ground vs 2 others for quite some time. If you check Team Paradigm's youtube channel there's a guide for this build, it's pretty effective when played right.

Really? Anyone? Even bunker guardians?  lol.  Funny cause I have never lost to a shout hammer warrior 1v1 as axe/mace warrior, or even using GS, usually I am the one finishing with 100% hp because they do no dmg and the hammer is easy to dodge.  There's no point trying to play node defense as warrior, guardians do it better atm.

Well you're probably just really really good, we're just talking about us, average players.
