Guild Wars 2 Guardian professions

Now, this I like. The Guardian is a protection class, with the key mechanic being her ability to temporarily disable some of her powers in order to ‘transfer’ them to her allys. So, for example, Guardians regenerate health passively, but can stop their own health regeneration to provide a regeneration effect to all nearby allies.

There will be eight professions available, each of which brings with it unique abilities, mechanics and playstyles. Let’s take a look at what we know so far.
