Save Guardian temps all have 60 second cooldowns or higher. If a Guardian chains their temps they are going to be dead because they will run out before they come up again. You know how long 14 stoneskins last? About 7-15 seconds if the boss attacks really slow and no DoT's are hitting. That's Tower of Stone: 60 seconds Last Man Standing: 150 Seconds Perfect Counter Attack: 120 seconds From there the Guardian can blow their only other "immunity" Dragoon's Reflexes, which only makes them immune to Melee Damage. Lasts for 12 seconds or 20 seconds if you put 8 AA into it. It also has a 90 second recast. Defensive Minded and Guardian Sphere work against each other for survival as one Dodges hit the other absorbs the next hit once you are hit, still only on less than 1/4 hits are absorbed or dodged so it's worse than Bob and Weave for Avoidance. I suppose the Guardian could cast Unyeilding Will so that they are back to full life when they die. So now that all are cast let's see where that Guardian's recasts are at. Tower of Stone: Possibly has 10 seconds left on it. Last Man Standing: About 110 seconds Perfect Counter Attack: About 80 seconds Dragoon's Reflexes: About 50 seconds. Unyeilding Will: About 410 seconds. Well isn't that just dandy? I love to know how Guardian's can chain-temps better than a Monk. That Strikethrough immunity buff? That's Defensive Minded and Dragoon's Reflex's. Defensive Minded also has a 150 second recast and only lasts for 30 seconds while Reflex's lasts 12 seconds and has a 90 second recast. It's only 42 seconds and both are on cooldown for at least another minute before they come back up again. So that is not " pretty much close to all the time" as you put it. You are exaggerating the Guardians abilities to make your own class look less powerful and so you can keep doing the Guardian's job better than the Guardian. At best a Guardian will get Tower of Stone up before he dies when faced against a boss with no healer. On average, they will last as long as Dragoon's Reflexes is up, once it's gone so are they.
