Guardian ATOs have arrived.

    Guardian's Gift and Absolute Resolution are the Series 1 and Series 2 Archetype Origin Enhancements for Guardian.  Each set features unique abilities tailored to the archetype that walks between Melee, Ranged, Armor, and Support.  Here's some of what you'll find.

    Guardian's Gift: Recharge/PBAoE Resolve
UNIQUE -- No more than 1 enhancement of this type may be slotted by a character. This enhancement boosts the effectiveness of Resolve. While attacking the power slotted with this enhancement has a chance to trigger a PBAoE Resolve around the caster, even if the foe has not yet been defeated. Additionally, this effect stacks with other Resolve effects. This power effect can stack Resolve up to 4 times. Additionally, this enhancement reduces recharge time by X%. This enhancement can only be slotted by Guardians and may be slotted into any of their damage powers."

    Absolute Resolution: Recharge/Chance for Energy Damage Bonus
UNIQUE -- No more than 1 enhancement of this type may be slotted by a character. This enhancement gives the slotted power a chance to inflict moderate energy damage when you have Resolve. The energy damage from Absolute Resolution increases by 30% with each stack of Resolve on the caster. Additionally, this enhancement reduces recharge time by X%. This enhancement can only be slotted by Guardians and may be slotted into any of their damage powers.

========================
Power animation/balance tweaks:

The 'Total Focus' animation has been sped up, reducing its animation time from 3.3s to 2.2s. This affects all player versions of the following powers: Total Focus, Tremor, Thunder Strike, and Incandescent Strike.

Blaster, Defender, and Corruptor Archery:
Rain of Arrows: Animation time reduced from 4.0s to 2.0s. Damage delay reduced from 1.0s to 0.3s.
Explosive Arrow: Damage changed from scale 0.6 lethal + 0.3 smashing to scale 0.3 lethal + 0.3 smashing + 0.3 fire, so that the power can now light Oil Slick Arrow.

Force Field, Repulsion Bomb and Radiation Blast, Neutron Bomb: Unified both powers to use the faster Repulsion Bomb version of the animation, and corrected the erroneous mismatches between activation time and animation length for both powers. This shortens the activation time of both powers to 1.47s, and affects all player versions of these powers.

Scrapper and Stalker Weapon Mastery, Exploding Shuriken: Radius corrected from 10 feet to 15 feet and max targets increased from 10 to 16 - this power was balanced incorrectly relative to other APP TAoEs.
Power bug fixes:

Blaster Darkness Manipulation, Touch of the Beyond: Now is correctly typed as a ranged attack rather than melee, and no longer ignores range buffs since it is a ranged attack. No longer accepts Blaster ATO sets, since it does not deal damage.

Blaster Electricity Manipulation, Force of Thunder: Now accepts Endurance Modification and Healing IO sets.

Blaster Fire Manipulation, Cauterizing aura: Now accepts Endurance Modification IO sets.

Blaster Devices:
Web Grenade: Now accepts Slow IO sets.
Field Operative: Now accepts Endurance Modification IO sets.

Blaster Mental Manipulation, Scare: Now is correctly typed as a ranged attack rather than melee.

Defender, Corruptor, and Mastermind Traps, Web Grenade: Now accepts Slow IO sets.

Presence pool, Pacify: Now accepts Endurance Reduction enhancements.

Scrapper, Stalker, Brute, and Tanker Bio Armor, Parasitic Aura: Now accepts Endurance Reduction enhancements.

Scrapper, Brute, and Tanker Radiation Melee, Irradiated Ground: Now accepts Defense Debuff enhancements, Defence Debuff and Accurate Defense Debuff IO sets, and ATO sets.

Scrapper, Stalker, and Brute Broad Sword, Scrapper and Brute Katana, Stalker Ninja Blade: All defense debuff effects now correctly have a 100% chance to trigger instead of 99.8%.

Fixed missing jumpspeed and jumpheight slow resistance.
    -Scrapper, Stalker, Brute, and Tanker Electric Armor, Lightning Reflexes:
    -Scrapper, Stalker, Brute, and Tanker Super Reflexes, Quickness:
    -Arachnos Soldier Training and Gadgets, Mental Training:
    -Arachnos Widow Widow Teamwork, Mental Training:

Controller and Dominator Wind Control:
    -Wind Shear: No longer accepts ATOs, as it does not have any mez effects.
    -Wind Shear: Corrected endurance cost to 1.04 end/s (Dominator only).
    -Breathless: No longer accepts slow IO sets, as it does not have an enhanceable slow effect.

Blaster, Defender, and Corruptor Beam Rifle, Overcharge: Fixed the erroneous damage delay on this power.

Scrapper and Stalker Mu Mastery, Zapp: Damage significantly increased; this power was unintentionally doing much less damage than it should have been.
