    Default Melee AE

    Hi Guys,

    My first 'toon was a Guardian but I never did much with it as when I started raiding the guild needed a wizard so I rolled one, liked it and stuck with it. Now that I have some time to work on my Guardian again I was looking about and checked out some of the specs on you guys. My question is that I did notice that most of you spec's for zero or as little Melee AE as possible. Could someone please tell me why? Is it just the for the most part Guardians are facing a single target or that the melee damage from multiple mobs is outweighed by concentrating on other specs? I will likely follow the same path as the experienced Guardians but rather than just follow blindly would like to understand why.

    Tks

    I'd assume its because most often their primary raiding role is to MT. Many fights, mainly those that spawn adds that have co-op strike, require the MT to use singular focus. Obviously, this is so that they have the minimum possible chance of getting aggro on them in the event that the adds spawn near to or on top of themselves.


    For OTing (betray to zerker?) perhaps ae auto is a viable spec, and likewise for tanking instances I'd expect ae auto to be viable.

    good thing we aren't in the zerker section then, otherwise that might have been relevant

    No, I was just saying how stupid YOU were for bringing up zerker in the guardian section and then saying that an aoe spec would be viable as a zerker. But it's ok, I expected it from you.

    Maybe you missed the parentheses in his sentence...but "betray to a zerker?" was an aside to the rest of the sentence in which he was saying that an ae auto spec would be viable to a guard filling an OT role or in heroic instances. So it doesn't really matter what section this is, I think that makes you the stupid one.
