they already said they wouldnt introduce vertical progression, and they just did it. they went back on their word. so what if they say now that they wont release new tiers of gear every so often? theyve already let us know that not only they think its ok to do that, but that they are ALSO willing to go back on their word. everything they say can be taken with a grain of salt, from this point on.

Do you actually read anything before posting?  

I mean, really...

This outrage is so funny, it's actually coming across as pathetic.  

People are reading into things and theorizing wildly different outcomes to something an benign as adding a missing tier between the very top and the current perceived top.  They didn't add gear above Legendary status.  This is gap filling.  It's to patch an oversight not remedied before release.  Why is this difficult to understand?  They aren't going to gear treadmill us, that's not Guild Wars/ANET's style.  Sigh....

#2066824 How is the Guardian Balanced compared to Warrior?

Guardians are support.

Did you know that machinegunners are considered support too in RL warfare? Yeah.

#1951855 I'm sorry if you got the wrong impression, but we love this game.

I hear a lot of whining on the forums. Okay, fair enough, I expect that. However, these people that have problems with the game towards the point that they regret their purchase are beginning to think that they are part of the majority. They couldn't be more wrong.

I'd just like to take a moment here to say something for the silent majority.

We love this game.
We're having lots of fun.
Yeah, there are some bugs that suck, but for the most part, it's a great way to spend a few hours.

Sorry if you thought we didn't like it, but we do. Sorry if you thought ANet is losing customers left and right, but they aren't. They have us. So whine. Complain and threaten and troll and do whatever you wish. Just know that you are a minority, a hedge case, and just because you don't love this game, doesn't mean we don't.

I'm not saying this game is perfect. I'm saying that I agree with the design decisions and the direction. If you don't, please play something else, because you're going to ruin it for us.

#1744064 Guardian Changes/Builds from Stress Test on 08/15/2012

Shelter also had its recharge value cut to 30s.  Not great, but not terrible as you can create a Block/Burn build around it.
Shield of Absorption's detonate is what was increased which also isn't working.

I'm reading a lot of posts that people are saying doom and gloom which is anything but the case.  Yesterday's stress test had these changes in it and Guardian's are still extremely viable as damage and point defenders.  Going over the changes made to traits and utilities/abilities, Guardians are turning more into profession where you just don't activate all of your skills and have the game do the rest.

No more permanent Retaliation which was just ridiculous.  Virtue of Resolve, reactive heals from abilities via traits, Renewed Focus, and our healing ability gave you practically a new life. We've been too good for too long and people were complacent with that fact and overlooked that we were too good.

These changes were needed, don't expect them to change too much, but do expect positive changes to come our way as well.
