Despite its hulking size and damage, Swordguard is actually a more defensive weapon in nature.
On top of this, Swordguard also offers increased defense against missiles as well as melee, which is a rare trait. It also gives a bonus to blocking, and any Barbarian who is looking to tank through weapon and shield can take advantage of this to further decrease the chance of enemy attacks hitting.
