Im pretty sure its just a placeholder, I bet they buff it to extremes by next patch since every1 is using tomes atm and completely ignore that skill.

What's the point of using this elite when you can use sanctuary and become completely tanky for at least half a minute?

Some of the hardest hitting skills are ground-target, like Meteor Shower, and go stragiht through Sanctuary. Being inside of it is pretty much forcing yourself to take 6k+ crits over and over from a decently built Ele.

Am i the only who thinks the fact that all of our elites root us in place is total bull?
Focused renew definetly needs major work.
But we still don't have an elite that we can actually move with.
I'd like to see one of the tomes changed alltogether.
I really feel we are one of the only classes where using our elite has such a big trade off.

I wouldn't have put it in quite that way, but... yes, the lack of any mobile elite was observed in the second post of this thread.
Got any comments or queries about moderation in one of my spheres of responsibility? Make sure I get the message!

If anet is gonna buff it hopefully they either revert it back to the 10 sec immunity or hell change its effect all together aside from resetting your virtues. My idea for it would be something like this Renewed Focus: Instant cast, Resets the cd on your virtues and makes your next 3 melee successful melee swings activate all 3 virtues. To me that sounds like a good elite that gives mobility and the feeling of actually being an elite.

Another good point to consider is the Tomes are team skills and Renewed Focus is suppose to be our self skill. Its biggest contribution is a 5 sec invincibility that can be slotted in a warrior utility. So, as far as the rework there are certain reoccurring themes i see.

*Needs to be mobile.
*Needs to enhance the Guardian itself.

Suggestion:
Renewed Focus-
Grants 5 sec Invulnerability
Grants Immunity to all CC 5 Sec
Grants Swiftness
Grants Might

Or a new skill sort of like Retaliation
Martyr Strike-
You are immobile/invincible for 5 secs
At the end of duration you release all damaged received as an AoE(or maybe a % for balance)

The First suggestion would fix the problem and the Second is similar with being more attractive to use.

^ The 2nd one wouldn't work too well for a self one, your supposed to avoid damage in anycase and you might not take any during the 5 seconds.

The first one is nice though.

They need to make it instant cast with 10 sec immunity. I dont see the problem. Not like tome of courage healing 5 people to full is any different.
