LW is mainly for back style dmg, with shield for slam and blade for pve. Spear is more for defense snaring, and not as commonly used in either pve or rvr as I understood, unless you ran a hero solely for defense in rvr. If this were the case though, guard becomes much more important then back snare.

I was still learning my Celt hero at the end of Uth 1.0 but I definitely learned that A properly equipped and buffed hero can deal heavy dmg with LW/slam combo.

Guard is more important than snare? xD
How 'bout that, if you snare and everyone moves properly, guard becomes unneccessary. But since 95% of the players rather stand around and complain that there are still tanks on their ****, your statement is correct and the sad truth about rvr :D

What I meant to say was that for a shield hero in 8-man, guarding, slamming and pet-clearing were the primary tasks I would do, while BMs would be rupting, backsnaring, etc.

Let the BMs do the killing. Behind snare from hero is all you really need. After all, a hero isn't just a guard bot but also the peeler.
You can use 2 dmg types with LW too remember that. 3 with spear.

6 blades, 39 spear, 42 shield, 50 LW.
