Why so much love for Guardians and Juggs?

I have 5 lvl 50 characters and recently I have been playing my Guardian tank a lot. Prior to that I was trying out tanking on my Vanguard. When I finally made the switch to play on my Guardian I came to the simple realization that it is easy mode on my Guardian. So much utility. The biggest differences are the fact that the Guardian has a million stuns, cooldowns, a push, two leaps, three if you include the leap after the push, an aoe slow, etc. None of my other classes have as much utility on top of raw damage/defensive ability. And don't even get me started on the Smash/focus spec. So when are the balance changes coming?

Are you suggesting they nerf guardian/jugg tanks? Yeah, that will go over well.

Don't you mean sents/maras? Juggs/Guards wouldn't have gotten a the buff if they didn't share a tree.

There is no love for Juggs/Guards.

I'm just saying I have played every class in the game and this one seems to be a lil o p. Not saying they need to nerf Guard tanks, but at least bring the others on par. On top of that, yes smash/focus specs need to be nerfed. 6-9k aoe instant ability. The devs are simply in love with this class. As much fun as it is to play, a balancing patch needs to come soon.

"6-9k aoe instant ability." it is not instant ability you have to use 2 other skills before this one.

Do you have a sage or shadow? Those classes have the most utility. Guardians have nothing on either of them.

You are literaly the first person I've heard complain that guardian tanking is too easy compared to other classes. Based on your in-depth analysis and a few other things (randomly starting a thread to whine about a class, weak grasp of facts, few actual details provided or apparently deemed necessary, random exaggerations, etc) I'm going to say it's just your opinion and as far as I'm concerned it's not worth much.

Guardians have like the worst crowd threat control in the game. They are horrible tanks in comparison to the others.
