People have been afraid of +6k Force Sweeps for a while now, but the biggest buffs to Guardians were in the Vigilance tree. Players of all classes should know that Master Strike is now uninterruptable and does 15% more damage. Don’t bother kicking a Master Striking Guardian, either stun or run. Also, Dispatch, a Guardian’s finishing move, is now usable on targets with less than 30% health, up from 20%. Those two buffs, which affect all Guardians, synergize best with the talents of the Vigilance tree.
The buff to Master Strike, combined with the buff to Zen Strike, a top tier talent in the Vigilance tree, makes it look a lot more viable than before the patch. In addition to resetting the cool down on Master Strike, Zen Strike now also grants 2 focus. Until now, the Vigilance tree has been overlooked in favor of massive Force Sweeps and more snares, but Vigilance’s high sustained single target damage cannot be ignored when it comes time to down a ball carrier or healer.
