Tactical Information

This is a good cooldown for Guardian tanks, as it greatly reduces the damage from avoidable attacks you take for a short amount of time. Note that it does not prevent tactical attacks or damage from damage-over-time effects. Moreover, most attacks from bosses in the more recent instances are not avoidable, limiting the use of this skill.
