It has uses in PVP. 5% less dmg taken by whoever is guarded regardless of range. Threat is so easy in this game that if u really need to, u could totally guard the current tank on boss.

Also a 25% threat reduction which can be useful. I usually just guard a healer anyway in PVE, cause keeping threat is a joke now, and healers typically get mob agro by default unless directly tagged by someone else.

In PVP guard is incredible. Without it real tanks would be next to useless as it is by far and above the biggest source of protection points. Guard swap is already annoying AF imo as u really have to spam it out (since u cannot q up the guard ability).

And theoretically, u can entirely ignore guard in arenas if u r quick enough to notice the person getting guarded and then swap targets.

Also guard does not absorb any damage. It slits dmg taken 50-50 between guarded person and guarder (then they each get to defend/mitigate their half of the damage).

Guard has no CD for a reason. Go against any good hardswap team and you'll understand why. Looking at both of your threads, you seriously have to be trolling.
