Aura block

Hello guardians, I have a question. Post patch I noticed a lot of guards (mainly DH in my instance although had FB had it too) had an ability that seemed to have a wicked small cd (1m fight they popped it maybe 3-5 times) where they had a yellowish aura and took 0 damage. Reminded me of Shelter but cannot confirm.

Can any guards confirm if this is what I saw?

    Light aura, perhaps? All auras got a reskin, now they look extra flashy.

    Do they get invuln or something when they get light aura? There was no visible fields they were blasting that I could remember

  • There is a trait setup that allows spear of justice to be cast again anytime a DH kills a foe, and again with the right traits, light aura can be applied anytime this virtue is used. It also applies blind to nearby enemies, so unless it was champions or higher, it would have caused attacks to miss. That's assuming what you saw was light aura, hard to say as I haven't seen it after the patch.

    Does shelter show an aura when cast now by any chance? Its pure block or invuln that i noticed but very short cd's

  • It's definitely not shelter. I did test to see the new light aura, and it does fit the description you're talking about. I ran through the other skills that guardian has which provide aegis or invulnerability, none cause a yellow aura. Mantras can be used repeatedly to apply aegis numerous times and prevent damage, but have no aura.

    I think it may be Shelter + Light Aura's new effect overlapping creating a yellowish Aura.

    Shelter has a blue-ish effect.

    But if it doesn't say "Block" it means it isn't Shelter.
    Maybe yu just got stopped by a projectile hate skill?
    Something like Ventari's barrier?
