This is a rant about something that's really been bothering me for the past few months.
As a Guardian, I always feel like I'm the most useless class in the game because no one wants me in parties or expos for raids/ farming,
Most people would always rather have a HolyKnight as they are pretty much better in every aspect (cross, crit buff, etc....).
It's such an empty feeling when the only time I ever get a party is by begging my Guild members to join a raid or expo.
I get invited (once in a while, rarely), but only because I am part of the guild; not because my class is able to properly contribute to the party.
I only chose Guardian thinking that the stronger heals would make it easier to be a party-oriented cleric, but boy was I wrong. Big time.
It is honestly really lame when you feel like you have to beg and leech your way in order to be able to participate in dungeons and obtain gear.
Can we please make Guardian more viable in PVE? Please...
Maybe make Rebirth last for an hour (just like normal cleric buffs) and make them work like Tears of Legel so people don't lose their scrolls when they revive.
This skill is borderline USELESS at the moment considering people who raid do not want to lose all their T6 scrolls / purple pots / disease immunity when they die,
which is why they would always rather use a tear instead. Also if HK buffs can last for 75 minutes, why can't guard's Rebirth last 59 minutes instead of 4 minutes.
Having to use it every 4 minutes on several party members during a raid is a huge waste of time and is really pointless. Please make this ability more useful.
Secondly Bubble needs a huge fix. The range indicator is always messed up and the area it covers is SO small that you literally have to be exactly on top of the
person for it to take effect. Clerics should be able to use their spells from far away, but Bubble forces you to walk up into boss-range in order to use it.
Please change it so it can be cast from a distance and please increase the area it covers.
These are just my suggestions, I am sure other players can find better ideas for improving Guardians in general.
At this point, I'm willing to take any improvement to make the class more respected within the game...
P. S. I am not sure if I posted this in the appropriate Forum section, so feel free to move this thread as need be.
