Guardian worthless?

Have we heard anything from pw or cryptic about making the guardian a better tank so they aren't excluded later on?

    They just need to change a few things, nerf Cleric shield and lower healing threat that way GF should be able to fill it's role.

    So are you guys more of a dps specced guardian to keep threat then a straight tank spec?

    They have to be if they want to hold threat. The other two trees are broken/worthless.

    GF are fine man. Don't listen to the baddies who trash the class. When I started playing it was hard to figure out how tanking/aggro was going to work in the game. It really isn't bad. The only people that ***** about GF being "worthless" are baddies who don't know how to play the class and use the tools given. They want to stand still and press TAUNT in between shield bashes and blocking. This game isn't for lazy people. Stay active, keep things marked, ask your group to keep adds concentrated so your cleave hits all if possible(and KEEP THEM MARKED!), use your taunt, keep them marked, keep your heal daily going, keep them marked. It is fairly simple.

    and then the control wizard launches everything over the side and you get kicked.

    Yup run around marking the 50 adds that spawn which will still do nothing. You can tell this guy is a pro GF from his choice of daily in PVE.

    No the problem is that with the Cleric shields they aren't really needed - I think that is his point.
