Maybe it's just me, but I see little indication that the 5% damage reduction wouldn't work in pvp when the reading the tooltip. The base effect of guard is 5% damage reduced and 25% threath reduced, with an additional 50% damage transfer in PvP when within 15 meters. The only thing I find really odd is that the 5% is reduced before the damage is split, even though all other forms of mitigation (and even the accuracy vs defense and crit/shield roll!) happen after the damage has been split, that just seems inconsistent to me.
