    Thanks! Missed it. I didn't know you could apply the Virtue to yourself (though it looked like it in the vids). Sweet.

    Also... traits on virtues? Pure gold.

    Instanced storyline? Also, even in persistent areas it's possible to solo.

    I really *really* don't understand why you say that. Weapon spells. Melee attacks. A few melee weapons to choose from. Damage buffs even. If anything I'd worry that it would be better at soloing than more pure professions (e.g. WoW paladins and druids were better at soloing than warriors or rogues afaik, at least back when I played it).

    For example, if your allies are all at 90% hp, have no conditions, and their self heal is ready to go, that might not be an ideal time to pop your Resolve virtue. If half your allies are blind, but all of the blinded are casters, that might not be an ideal time to pop Resolve. If a bunch of ettins are dishing out love taps while building adrenaline, it might not be the ideal time to pop Courage and have it on cool down when they start using their hard-hitting skills.

    How can a guardian use his skills strategically without this status information?
    That's a good question. I hope more details will be revealed soon.
