    Oh good. Just gotta pay attention for that specific casting animation, and LOLNOPEIDODGED!
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    Ok, well the only guardian AOE I’m having problems with is the best heal in the game, which makes them unhittable while they fully restore themselves and others. Other classes are lucky to restore even half their own health if they aren’t interrupted. I can counter any of the guardians offensive moves, but they are stout tanks and the best healers to begin with, and if spec’d only a little for DPS, they’re an even more significant force to be reckoned with. I go dual-weild and 2-hander doing only slightly less dps with my build than a glass cannon, with much more durability, yet they drag the fight out by easily negating a lot of damage, then fully restoring. Any attacks they provide are icing on the team cake especially when considering their ability to move people around, control points, and cc. Sure, there’s no holy trinity, but there really is, right?: and ya got 2 or 3 pieces right here!

    I don't wanna beat a dead horse or qq, but they really don't seem so trivial to me. Many matches seem to come down to who had the most guardians and thieves on their team, plain and simple. I think this is a great game, with plenty of wide appeal in both pve and pvp, but they could really do some justice to their product if they adjusted a few things, and i'm sure they will. Hopefully this issue will be at the forefront of their minds. I know things will never be perfectly balanced, but this one just seems obvious.

    Well, there's that too. Dodge needs to be the instinctual response to danger, though, and it's something I sometimes struggle with still.

    i have no problem with dodging, I have a problem with dodge when I dodge roll and I don't move out of the way. I get stuck on nothing, I literally mean nothing but a ground texture.

    So it wasn't just me who sometimes just rolls in place (without any debuff on me).

    It happens rarely, about once every two days at max, but it does happen. Not really gamebreaking imo.

    I learned the hard way that one does not simply Block a dragon's foot to the face. A dodge, or phasing out of reality works just fine though.

    Fun way to twist a meme, I must say.

    I have been rooted in place before, unable to move and there was no debuff on me. I would use zephyr to shoot my volly of arrows aoe and as the animation (not the casting bar) would finish I quickly switched to another spell and it held me rooted in place as if I was still casting my aoe untill i re casted it then I could move again.
    I believe it's time for me to be famous.
