Default Guardian of Empyrion Build

Can a build scaling Guardian of Empyrion be viable as main DPS build? Thats all I wanted Grim Dawn.

Well, guardians scale with character bonuses so it wont be simple pet build, but if you max them out till epics they can be pretty decent as far as I was told. There is MI rifle that gives them bonus and provide +3 to skill and some items with direct bonuses

There are some skill modifiers for them,but is hard to make them the main damage dealers,from players scaling pets blade spirits are better option.

Bind Flame Torrent or Meteor shower to them

What I do not like about guardians is that their range from the player is very low, meaning one has to be pretty tanky in order to allowing them to deal optimal damage.

If only the OK had some decent tankiness options like shield skills or damage absorption or retaliation bonuses.

I hate with SB,when I have to kite,how guardians are running with me.Please attack them,so you can apply RR to my burn damage,but meh even pet attack command is not doing much.On flip side in SR sometimes they draw aggro from multiple nemesis/bosses simultaneously.

Would this be more viable focusing on physical or fire damage? I imagine it'd be easier to convert to fire, but there would be more ways to boost physical via skills?

If you have elementa/fire > physical conversion on your gear, they will deal physical damage yes.
