    Both are fine choices, and have builds with plenty demand in all game modes. guardian probably has the edge, but you cant go wrong with either, really

  • for farming open world revenant (power renegade) in better.
    wvw i dont know.

    Both are good everywhere, guard is for the most part easier though and at least in wvw has more than one role

    I've mained the two. My opinion after long years playing both:

    Guardian advantages:

    • Have been meta in most parts of the game along most of the time.
    • Lots of versatility in terms of weapons and skill selection.
    • Variety in builds. Excells at support in WvW.
    • At the moment, very high dps in both power and condi configurations.
      Guardian disadvantages:

    • Low base HP forces you to invest atribute points in health if you want to play PvP/WvW.

    • Slow speed moving forces you to either wear runes for mobility for quality of life (hurting your potential damage) or viceversa.
    • Firebrand has serious healing/sustain problems at PvP/WvW after stacked nerfs.

    Revenant advantages:
    *High variety in terms of damage/tankiness/support based on the legend selectioon and build choices.
    *High mobility if needed, unique resource management which makes engaging the gameplay.
    *Extreme tankiness while dealing good damage at PvE, variety of builds at PvP/WvW.
    Revenant disadvantages:
    *Low amount of weapons available; stifness in the skill system due they are attached to each legend.
    *Lots of bugs involving the templates due the way the legends work.
    *Weakness to conditions; usually lacks access to stability (a Rev tailored to fix these issues usually loses mobility and damage in a sort of trade off).
