Cba to look when they started to make conditions "less bursty" and do their damage over time rather than burst, especially burns.
Guardian's torch 4 flip skill
3 stacks of burn for 3s to do full damage. When others became 1 stack for longer duration like scourge torch,mesmer torch, ranger etc.
Just an example what happened to harrowing wave

Burning has been adjusted from 3 stacks for 3 seconds to 1 stack for 8 seconds.
Torment has been adjusted from 3 stacks for 3 seconds to 2 stacks for 6 seconds.
Someone forgot this thing exists, especially when you get it for free from the trait.
DH's Hunter's Determination -
Drop a trap on being CC'd but also this trait has another functionality , which guardian alrdy have a trait for (60s cd, lol), each time they are being CC'ed, they gain aegis, no CD.
So, this never allows to land a big hit after CC'ing them, ever.
To contrarily what they said "we want to reduce passive auto-procs defenses", nice

Fixed an issue that caused this trait to apply aegis without respecting its cooldown.
So, I guess its a bug...again... ?
