    She is fine for now and probably will be for a while. Even if they did nerfs, I doubt it would cripple the class. Don't worry about it.

    I don't see how she would be nerfed...she has good dmg and that's it pretty much.

    She has been buffed 4 times so far in kr (we got the buffed version) and she got one nerf (was i think 30% decrease in dmg to her shift+lmb) which we also already have.

    why would it get nerfed?
    The playerbase amazes me.
    "Guardian is so slow my grandma could beat her."
    "Guardian wins the slow motion contest at full speed."
    "Guardian has no cancels its going to really suck."
    "These animations are soooo slooooow... This class is so sTuPiD."

    "Oh God they are going to nerf this class. Its coming! I can feel it!"

    Heh. Most people speak in superlatives nowadays. So take anything said with a grain of irony. From one extreme to the next, people have decided to speak in newspaper headlines. These are those kind of times now. Go figure.

    At any rate, overall, guardian is an amazing class. From protection, to damage, to utility, and so forth, the class seems complete. We are not used to getting classes that are fully complete. That's why people feel that it will be nerfed.

    Plus, the new class is usually over clocked to maximize reroll money before subsequent downgrades.

    She's still been getting buff's in KR and as someone already said the few nerfs they gave her there have already come out here, so no nerfs soon (probably)

    Probably no need to worry about nerfs until a new class is officially announced.

    Weak at what? Certainly not PvE grind. And the PvP videos show it holds its own.

    The class is insanely slow, almost impossible to PVP with and u still wanna complain about the PvE damage compensation the class got? Its nowhere OP if you consider the slow animations and no cancels. You can pretty much out-DPS a guardian with 50% of the others while being more mobile and havin a wider variety of cancels etc.. Doin big damage in a single attack that takes like 3-4 seconds to cast is NOT op, its the opposite actually. If they ever nerf (for whatever stupid reason) her PvE, shes a lost cause of a class that nobodys gonna touch.

    Guardian in her current state is aboslutely fine as is even tho she lacks alot on PvP

    I dont think that she is that slow at all tbh.
    She might not have the best cancels, but there certainly are some.
    I do think, if she gets a nerf it might be a range decrease. Dmg is fine as is, she is surpisingly mobile aswell ( if you use her kit properly).
    About PvP, csnt really tell yet - but as someone b4 already said she might have potential in a rolr we have yet to figure out - she might be some sort of walking fortress.

    Im having a blast with her, and that is what matters tbh.

    Depends best at what spot. She's pretty strong at endgame grindspots as the heal allows her to just spam big dmg skills. Also she can keep the debuffs and selfbuffs up which is the main reason why she is so strong there. 20ap buff on spacebar skill + 25 monster addon on shift+f which you can keep up permanently. on top of that a -20dp on shift+q allows her to do way more dmg than her ap would suggest. In pvp using your shift+q or spacebar is pretty dangerous as spacebar is unprotected and shift+q a long animation and both get you stuck so basically a free grab.
