Guardian Druid PVP Spec

Guardian is the Druid tank spec, and for PVP it has its strengths. In BGs capping and holding flags or towers are where Guardians are at their best, but in Arenas they have damage output issues. This doesn’t mean you can’t do well in arenas as a Guardian, it means you need to become creative. Here is a build that will help you get started.
