It seems like the curtain around Guild Wars 2 is finally slipping, once more. After months of near silence from the offices of ArenaNet the excitement around this unveiling is palpable.

The unveiling in question is the long awaited 5th profession, the 'guardian'. Eurogamer got the scoop early, putting up an interview earlier today and the anticipated skill video. The official guardian page is now also up.

All in all, it seems like the guadian is the most support oriented of the classes so far. Guild Wars 2 lead designer Eric Flannum even suggests it was created with those who enjoy playing more traditional healing classes in mind. That said, the guardian is definitely a front line class and appears to pack a **** of a punch, sending enemies flying across the battlefield.

Keep checking our guardian link round up to stay up to date with all of the related news as it comes! A number of interviews and articles on there already.

I'm seeing it as a Paladin/Rit. I usually play support roles but I'm not sure if this class is for me. Does anyone else think this might be a difficult class to balance as well? I mean, a warrior who can cast protections? Hmmm, I'm very interested to see how this one develops.

I'm definitely concerned about the popularity of this class. If you've played WoW at all you know that every 13 year old rolls a paladin first. Swinging big weapons and healing yourself? It's just too attractive.

I'd love to play a guardian, it sounds like a pretty deep and interesting profession, but I don't want to struggle to find groups because everyone has a guardian.
