    Default Tier 2 Guard Caps

    As many raiders are aware guard values are different for T2. You don't start gaining T2 guard until ~2850 guard, and the 10% soft cap for T2 is ~3378 guard.

    Thank you Lethaemis for the information! Any idea what the hard cap is for Tier 2?

    I believe the hard cap is 3904, but I cannot say for sure since I have only reached that amount on PTS.

    EDIT: For some reason the T2 hard cap is lower than the T1 hard cap.

    It's kinda silly how I gain more from my guard in T2 than I do in T1. Don't really see the logic in that.

    ~0.019% per point between ~2850 and ~3378

    1. 0.02% at 2853, so t2 starts at 2850 sounds correct.


    2. 10.02% at 3383, so 3378 is soft cap sounds correct too.


    3. Im currently having 10.39% self buff at 3480.


    4. With 250 guard pots, 11.34% at 3730, so 0.0038% per point after cap is correct.


    5. With 0.0038% per point after cap, hard cap at 3903/3904 is correct.

    It's alright, the game has a lot of items that just simply go unnoticed. Most guild's supports don't even use Legendary Philter of Power, and then there's the even more hidden item Phial of the Awakened which increases the damage of your first 3 Abilities.

    It was an issue with Bard Motifs @ level 50. This issue has been fixed so it should work at level 60+. Unsure if it's been fixed at Level 50, also uncertain if it works for level 65, I haven't paid much attention since I rarely see a Bard support in the raids I participate in where I actually use one of those potions.

    These used not to stack with crit pots, which are obviously much better. Is that not the case anymore?

    Crit pots have a 3 minute cooldown. The bitter aftertaste debuff is 1 minute.
