The talents recommended could use a little further clarification and discussion.  

In a single target fight, properly timing Bristling Fur and SotF will generate more rage over the course of the fight.  In multi Target fights, Galactic Guardian and Blood Frenzy will generate more rage.

The Tier 5 talents are not very good described. Galactic Guardian gives you 15 rage when you use moonfire after it triggers. from a mathematic standpoint Galactic Guardian is nearly twice as good as Soul of the Forest without even considering the that it can trigger on every damaging event! Also it does more damage than soul of the forest, It should be described as the best talent in this tier with Guardian of Elune being the best for burst and soul of the forest being behind.

It may be useful to consider that Crit also directly increases our Dodge, which should slightly increase its value.

Thank you both. We pushed a rather large update through last night that I think addressed these (and other) issues. Hopefully.

Personally, I would recommend the guide at this link. It's very good, at least in my opinion.

Not convinced by your reasons for taking resto affinity over feral (but always open to the possibility that I'm the one who's wrong).

The passive from resto is a 3% heal every 5 seconds. In raids where you might have downtime, you can shift out of bear form and cast Swiftmend. I haven't played the test servers, but seem to recall Blizz saying they were working on minimizing tank downtime.

Feral, on the other hand, gives an always convenient 15% movement buff AND 35% faster energy regeneration.

At the very least this sounds like a viable option, while you make it sound one-sided.

Though it sort of obvious, but I would suggest adding a brief note about Guardian of Elune talent: its important to track the buff and make sure not to override it using Mangle unless you pooling rage for a specific event as it reduces value of the talent / AM uptime.

Good thoughts!
Since you already have really good mobility with Dash, Stampeding Roar and Displacer Beast/Wild Charge (If you chose one of them) I wouldn't say that the 15% movement speed increase is needed.
I'd recommend going for Balance Affinity if you feel that the passive healing aint beneficial.

5 yards increased range on all your spells should be prioritized over 15% movement speed in most scenarios.
Since you will be sitting in Bearform almost all the time (Might be a few fights where its not needed) the 35% energy regeneration is not going to benefit you alot.

Hi. I would see if anyone could give advice. I'm really struggling to keep aggro with this spec!  Any suggestions would greatly help

Hi FuzzyFace5,

I noticed this yesterday aswell during our mainraid, both on my monk and druid. 
The TPS (threat per second) is pretty unbalanced right now, since your Artifact plays a big role.

I guess we sadly have to wait for Legion..
Although, Incarnation: Guardian of Ursoc is great for threat. Just make sure to spam mangle and use Growl to build as much as you can while its active.

Cheers,

I do not understand the recommendation to ever use Maul. Ever. Maul does not trigger Gore, and it does less damage than Swipe. A rage dump is not a justifiable excuse for the damage loss/missed Gore proc.

Hi archlael.

Maul should only be used when sitting on full Rage and your AM (Active Mitigaion) aint needed, for example when you're not actively tanking.
Maul is not on the GCD (Global Cooldown) and that is why you should use it to dump excessive Rage. Swipe is on the GCD however, and that is why it should only be used as a filler when your other abilities are on cooldown.

I am so glad to hear you say this. I play with a DK co-tank and did with a pally co-tank as well. Both are better geared than me, but it wasn't too dramatic. Prior to the patch I had no trouble holding aggro. After the patch I literally could not hold AE aggro in any situation. They had to tank everything or just auto attack. Even in single target situations I would commonly have to taunt back. It was extremely discouraging / worrying to me. 

Has anyone tanked as a guardian in a raid in Legion beta? I love my bear but I cannot go through the expansion like this.

Hi Ebonhorn,
Yeah I had to use my taunt button frequently last raid, I feel you..

I've been playing BrM / Guardian / Blood DK in Legion raids so far, and I havn't noticed anything special when it comes to threat.
Aritfact weapons plus all traits are going to play a big role for Legion so it's hard to say much right now, but atleast it's looking way better!

Resto Affinity isn't that good, also it doesn't heal for 3% in Bear Form, in Bear Form it only heals for 1.5%. But out of bear form it heals for 3%. Bear form has a passive effect that reduces its effect by 50%, as can be seen on wowhead as well as in game by doing the math on the amount it heals you for in bear form.

Really not convinced that any of the talents on that tier are must-haves. Extra range on Thrash and Swipe is ok, but most mobs come to us anyway and it's not hard to dance around thrashing to bring them all in. My bear is around 718 atm, with 850k health, and resto is giving him 12k heals every 5 seconds. And then there's feral with its 15% movement buff, which can be handy on Mannoroth or for any fight where you're running stuff out of group more frequently than roar comes off CD.

I've been spec'ing feral mostly as a QoL choice. It's just nice being a wee bit faster all the time.

I strongly disagree with the tier 3 talent choices. Feral affinity is by FAR the best and really only good choice in this tier. If you are running 5 mans then balance could come into play for when a dps accidentally aggros another mob but other than that the extra range is kind of pointless and the heal from resto is just bad. Feral affinity is currently offering ~30% dps increase which is HUGE. However, the playstyle completely changes with it. You guys should add that feral is the top choice and give a in dept guide over how to bearcat.

If this isn't a bug, this is pretty stupid overall.  

3% is already borderline not competitive.  

Also, I just tested it and it is 1.5% whether you are in Bear Form or not, just by being in Guardian spec.  I tested in Caster, Bear, and Cat, still 1.5% in all of them.  

No tooltip anywhere in-game lists a reduction in the effect and every tooltip for Ysera's Gift says 3% while in Guardian spec, regardless of form.

How does movement speed increase your damage? Or are you talking about the few encounters were you can leave bear for like 5-10 seconds? Either way 30% more dps sound like you made something up.

I've just started with this build, and my buttons for Ironfur and Frenzied Regeneration are grayed out and never pop. Am I doing something wrong? Is it bugged? Should I petition it? I've been reading and some guides say that Ironfur isn't in the game currently?

Thanks for any help! I usually run a BrM or DK tank, so this is all new to me.

I'm a tad confused about Mastery/Haste as our stat priority when Crit/Mastery is what is on our artifact...

I have a question for the artifact, even if it's not in this guide yet. Which golden trait should we pick first as guardian ?

Both Ironfur and Frenzied Regeneration requires Rage as a resource.
Both spells are in the game currently, so it seems like a bug to me since I havn't had any problems with this myself.

Try sending a ticket to blizzard!

      With the most recent hotfixes bringing in significant nerfs to Mythic Kil'jaeden, only a day after Exorsus' World 2nd kill, the guild's twitter had some words to share with the WoW devs, and the encounter designers in particular:
      We'd already heard a fair amount of complaints from both Method and Exorsus previously, on the state Kil'jaeden was in for the first week and more, but these hotfixes do seem to indicate that KJ was overtuned even in Blizzard's estimation (this, in addition to the 10+ undocumented nerfs he had already received prior to Method's World First kill). We've also heard that there will be a big post coming where all the issues they've had with ToS will be discussed by the GM, Alveona:
       
      What do you think about the situation, are Exorsus being too harsh on the devs or do they have a point?

      When +17 just isn't enough, it's time to move on to +19. Mione is just shy of that +20 barrier with this most recent solo endeavor in the Court of Stars, but at least it took half the time of the Vault of the Wardens clear, somewhere in the vicinity of 6 hours. Shave just 5+ hours off of that and the solo artist would be able to qualify for the Mythic Dungeon Invitational!
       
      Let's see if that +20 barrier gets broken any time soon!

      In this mini guide, we're looking at how to answer the call to battle and reach Argus. The quest will be active once Patch 7.3 goes live.
      Please note that this article contains spoilers.
      An Introduction to Argus
      “Sometimes the hand of fate must be forced…”
      Downfall of the Deceiver had dire consequences. Argus is the original homeworld of the eredar, once described as a utopian world whose inhabitants were both vastly intelligent and highly gifted in magic. It has since been twisted by demonic, chaotic energies and has become the stronghold of the Burning Legion and is even referred to as Legion's homeworld. (Source).
      Patch 7.3 is the biggest content patch ever introduced to the game. The Heroes of Azeroth will travel to Argus to put an end to Legion once and for all. From a gameplay perspective, the new planet contains three zones and their content is unlocked gradually as you complete the story line.
      For the latest information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.
      Argus Zones
      The planet is comprised of three zones - Krokuun, Mac'Aree and Anthoras Wastes.
      Krokuun
      The first area to start the Argus experience is Krokuun. Green circles on the map indicate Invasion Points, golden icons are Lightforged Beacons used to teleport back to and from the Vindicaar. Argus has no flight points or paths and teleporting (traveling) is faster than on Azeroth. You can't teleport between different Lightforged Beacons, but you can teleport to any Lightforged Beacon aboard the Vindicaar. Lightforged Beacons for areas are unlocked through quests.

      The Vindicaar
      Before we proceed, it's important to talk about the Vindicaar. The vessel plays a huge role on Argus. It serves for transport for both factions and it's important to know what you can find aboard the ship. Every zone will have a separate Vindicaar and it seems we will be using it even in Antorus the Burning Throne raid to travel to the Seat of the Pantheon to fight Argus the Unmaker and imprison Sargeras.
      Vindicaar Map
      Below is a picture of the Vindicaar map. Important quest givers and turn-ins will always be marked with yellow question or exclamation marks on the map.
      The Netherlight Crucible - a system to empower new and existing Relics can be found at 57, 71. Vindicaar Matrix Core - "Warlords of Draenor" style zone perks for Argus can be found at 49, 44. Only one perk can be active at any given time. Examples Light's Judgment Lightforged Warframe The Navigation Console is at 42, 22. You right-click it and pick a Lightforged Beacon to teleport to.
      Reaching the Vindicaar
      After you unlock the Vindicaar you can use it to teleport back to Dalaran at any time and vice versa. A Lightforged Beacon will be available at Krasus Landing in Dalaran and a portal to Dalaran from the Vindicaar will unlock too, but if you're lost on Argus and need to find a Lightforged Beacon to transport you back to the Vindicaar, it's essentially faster to just use Dalaran Hearthstone and reach the Vindicaar from Krasus Landing in Dalaran.
      This is how Krasus Landing in Dalaran looks like if you haven't unlocked the Lightfoged Beacon to the Vindicaar yet. The portal will appear to the left side of the High Vindicator when it becomes available.

      Once you descend to Krokuun a portal will unlock that can be accessed at any time. If you want to get to Dalaran, the Vindicaar portal is at 40, 33.

      Argus Campaign
      In this section, you will learn everything about how to get to Argus and unlock the campaign.
      Getting to Argus
      The first quest is an auto-accept, which means it will automatically appear in your quest log wherever you are. The Alliance has a different intro than the Horde, but after traveling to Argus, both factions will be completing the same quests.
      Alliance Intro
      The Hand of Fate (Alliance) As an Alliance player, take the Dalaran portal to Stormwind and go to Stormwind Harbor to talk to Vereesa Windrunner (21, 30) and turn in the quest
      Two If By Sea (Alliance) Accept the new quest and speak to Vereesa Windrunner. She will have a dialogue option to set sail for Exodar. Horde Intro
      The Hand of Fate (Horde) As a Horde player, take the Dalaran portal to Orgrimmar and go to Bladefist Bay in Durotar to talk to Lady Liadrin on the Sunstrider (58, 12) and turn in the quest.
      Two If By Sea You learn that the Draenei crafted a vessel to take you to Argus safely. It's called the Vindicaar, your main transportation hub on Argus. Accept the quest from Lady Liadrin and set sail for Exodar. Turn in the quest by talking to Vindicator Boros on Azuremyst Isle (21, 55) once you arrive. Accept the next quest from him. Aethas Sunreaver: I see the Alliance answered the call as well.
      Continuation for Both Factions
      Light's Exodus (Alliance) At this point, you will notice the Horde ship that will be just opposite yours and the quests will be the same too. Turn left and take down the path leading to Exodar and Prophet Velen simply by following Vindicator Boros and the rest of the crew (Vereesa & Arathor). Light's Exodus (Horde) Boros tells you to go to Exodar, where Velen and other Draenei gathered in the Vault of Lights. Turn left and follow him and the rest (Aethas and Liadrin) down the path to Exodar. Once you enter Exodar your movement speed will be increased by 60% (Light of the Chosen) and Prophet Velen will speak to you. Vidicator Boros: Come. I will show you to the Vault of Lights. The others await our arrival. Lady Liadrin: Impressive. The Legion won't expect a force this strong. Vinocator Boros: Argus is our ancestral home. We will not see it in the Legion's hands any longer. High Vindicator says: prophet Velen is just ahead, champions. Prophet Velen: Fellow draenei... champions of Azeroth... the time has come to invade Argus. Prophet Velen: We will save our world and put a stop to the Burning Legion... once and for all. Prophet Velen: Come, champion. Let the Light guide your path! When you zone in, you will notice both Alliance & Horde leaders and Illidan talking to Velen. Illidan Stormrage: The Legion grows desperate. We should strike now while their attention remains focused on Azeroth. Prophet Velen: You are right, Illidan. This may be our best chance to gain the upper hand. Talk to Velen to end the quest  
      The Vindicaar Accept the quest from Velen and board the Vindicaar that's now preparered for your assault. You must establish a beacon to transport you to the vessel. Prophet Velen: Lend me your strength, champion. We will open the way together. Right-click the Light Crystal to activate it (1.1 second cast). Afterward, you will be channeling another spell for 15 seconds until a Lightforged Beacon will appear allowing you to board the Vindicaar that's ready to travel to Argus for the very first time. Prophet Velen: The Exodar has long been crippled by the crash that brought us to this world many years ago. Prophet Velen: Every spare moment, every resource, has gone toward the birth of a new vessel. Our instrument of retribution. Prophet Velen: The way is open. Come, children of Argus, allies, champions. The Vindicaar awaits! Conversation upon boarding the Vindicaar: Lothraxion: My brethren in the Army of the Light await our arrival. Only together will we achieve victory. Prophet Velen: The Light will guide us to them. Romuul, begin final preparations and ensure our forces are accounted for. It is time. Grand Artificer Romuul: Yes, Prophet. Right away. Hand in the quest at Prophet Velen (35, 45 aboard the Vindicaar on Azuremyst Isle).
      Into the Night Argus awaits, accept the quest from Prophet Velen to travel to Argus aboard the Vindicaar. Prophet Velen: Let me know when you are ready to depart. Talk to Prophet Velen and click on "I am ready." to travel to Argus. A trailer will play shortly after you find yourself on Argus. Conversation after you enter Argus aboard the Vindicaar Illidan Stormrage: Their next blast will decimate us-- unless we strike first. Prophet Velen: We must destroy the weapon while it is still recharging! Romuul, deploy a bunker below! Grand Artificier Romuul: Bunker deployed, Prophet! Turn in the quest at Prophet Velen and accept the next one.
      Alone in the Abyss Prophet Velen has another quest for you. Speak to Romuul to disembark the Vindicaar. Prophet Velen: Romuul, send our vanguard to establish a front. Grand Artificier Romuul: Activating transport array. Prophet Velen: Champion, we will descend together once you are prepared. Grand Artificier Romuul says: On your mark, champion. Talk to Romuul and select the option: "Take me to the surface." Conversation after you descend: Illidan Stormrage: Come, let us show Sargeras' ilk what they have brought upon themselves. Exodar Vindicator: Our home... what has it become? Prophet Velen: Hold your ground! We must protect the Vindicaar with our lives!
