The Guardian is able to summon 4 different arcane weapons to aid him in battle. These include the Sword of Justice, The Hammer of Wisdom, The Shield of the Avenger and the Bow of Truth.
In all the cases, except the bow, the description says: "Summons an arcane (weapon) to defend you."
The bow says: "Summons an arcane bow to cure conditions on you and your allies.
The wiki doesn't do much better to elaborate exactly what it does. I have noticed that the hammer seems to be able to knock down foes and even push them back sometimes. The specifics from the sword and the shield is less noticeable so I don't quite understand what they do exactly. Can someone explain exactly what each weapon is capable of. I'm also curious how often the bow can remove conditions from my allies and me.
Please note that I am not talking about the secondary skills you can activate after you summon the weapons that will also destroy the weapon itself. I am referring to what it is capable of right after you summon it while its fighting on its own.
Because there are 4 different summoned weapons and only three non-elite slots to equip it, I am curious which of the summoned weapons are more advantageous in different situations. Knowing exactly what each weapon is capable of will go a long way in this decision.
