The Swordguard is a unique Executioner Sword from Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

Despite its hulking size and damage, Swordguard is actually a more defensive weapon in nature.

At high levels, Swordguard gives a very high bonus to defense. When combined with good armor, and possibly even auras such as Defiance, defense can be raised to more than effective levels.

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.
