Guardian druids terrible because no magic dmg miti OMG it's almost like they had something  for this in legion and it might've been removed instead of nerfed/changed like they should've done like making it passive or giving it a CD or making it like 5/6% and letting it stack like ironfur or have the artifact ability we had as a stopgap when they removed it in legion become baseline it's sad bears being op tanks in legion castrated them for every other expansion because blizzard doesn't understand balance with a scalpel only a bat or a machete Btw if you didn't know Im talkin about ursols fur I don't want druid to be godlike again all I want is them to be not the bottom of the barrel and I say this as a bear that's been playing feral/guardian (since feral and Guardian used to be the same spec wish it was again) it since og vanilla

Yeah, I feel your pain. Druids deserve more, they've just been down for too long. Hopefully they get some new way to deal with magic damage, because all the armor in the world won't make them useful in Castle.

Evaluation before the full spectrum of changes shows the adolescence of this site and I know they are trying to be bias but there obvious prejudice is showing when it comes to classes. That said we still are not into Shadowlands and I hope to see a few changes before launch.

There are multiple warnings explaining that these are not final rankings and there will change before Shadowlands. That being said, it's also just empirically false to think that you cannot determine anything useful from how tanks perform now. Monks can get nerfed, but Stagger is still going to be a mechanic. Blood DKs will still have AMZ and grips. When it comes to tank balance, we know a ton about how the tier will play out because we know the core mechanics of the tanks and we know how the fights in Castle work for the most part.

Can we get an update based on the recent changes?

Definitely, I've been putting the new changes together, it just sometimes takes a bit to figure out exactly how the changes will play out.

Yeah for sure! thank you for this!

The new tank changes are all in, however the new Guardian changes from today are going to change Guardian to "Unranked". Their new talent is absurdly strong, but obviously broken. Until we figure out the intended mechanic for it to work, cannot really rank them accurately.

 

If it works the way people are expecting it to, Guardian could jump a few tiers since this gives them a way to deal with magic damage effectively.

I see this hasn't been updated in a while and I was wondering how bears are doing with the most recent change that was mentioned in a comment

Bears are doing better, but they'll be moving to an "unranked tier" in the next update I push. Bear got two new really awesome defensive tools, but the new talent specifically is bugged or broken and can stack to ridiculous DRs right now. Until it gets tested more and the talent gets fixed, it is impossible to accurately rank them since it'll certainly be a core defensive tool and we just do not know how it works yet.

 

If I had to guess, I'd say they'll *maybe* move to B-tier, but I don't expect higher than that. It's a good tool, but other tanks will probably still be better options all else equal. This entirely depends on how the mechanic is intended to work though.
