Vanguards are Melee non-stealth DPS and we only have Reactive Shield as defensive CD (25% dmg reduction).
You have Saber Ward (25% dmg reduction and +50% defense), the cloak of pain (25% dmg reduction and every hit increases duration top 30s...and returns damage!), 4 sec Stealth (with 50% dmg reduction), Undyyng (4 sec god mode).
Marauder has too many defensive CD's. Make Saber Ward a Guardian/Juggernaut exclusive skill would be a fine move.
Precisely. The class is too easy to play and they won't accept it.
