This is a mirror of the post I made on the Alpha Class Development Forums. I’ve saved a record of it here in its entirety for posterity when the forums are closed. Feel free to follow along while the thread is open here.
Let’s talk about Guardian Druid. While I don’t think anyone would argue that Guardian wasn’t the king of Legion raid tanking, nobody would argue against it being the most dull either.
Let’s talk about the Guardian Tier 21 set bonuses.
First, what are they?
2pc : When Gore is consumed, the cooldown of Barkskin is reduced by 1 second.
4pc : When Barkskin fades, all healing done to you is increased by 10% for 20 seconds.
I want to talk about what each bonus does, how they may impact gameplay and talent choices, and then I’ll give my overall impressions of them.
