    Ehh Ares is average I'd say, he can't peel for shit but his damage is insanely scary for a squishy and his cripple is extremely effective if you hit it.

    The only Guardians I think are "bad" to the point where I never play them unless I really have to (which is never) are Khepri and Sylvanus. Since the community is convinced that both of those are good, competitive and strong, the answer to your question would be that there are no bad guardians.

    No matter what guardian you play, you will always bring a decent amount of damage, burst, durability and/or control in a moderate balance that will in one way or another will help you and your team get the win.

    Gods like Athena excel at giving Control and Damage, others like Bacchus are amazing shocktroopers that can initiate hard and dirty, others are mostly damage hogs like Ares and others bring nice other ways to support a team like Khepri for example.


    Geb is one of my favorite guardians atm because he excels at everything I just mentioned. He has insane burst damage to the point where he can initiate in some cases even 100-0 squishies, especially at later stages of the game, his CC overall is great with having 2-3 sources of hard CC and his shield is one of the bes abilities in the game.

    I would also mention Xing Tian because his kit is strong very broken. His only true flaw that really stops him from being SSS Tier in my book is that CC immuning his ultimate also negates all of the damage it deals (which is high base damage + almost 200% down the drain).

    I just don’t like how his entire kit revolves around his 1. If you miss that, all you can do is use your 2 and then run around saying, “I show my enemies no mercy!”

    Best overall Guardian right now is probably Fafnir.

    I don't think any of the Guardians are bad per-say, but if I had to pick one for Conquest standards, it would be Kumbha.

    If you're asking Support, I think the worst is Cerberus, who I see as exclusively for solo lane.

    But guardians are not just support. When I want to be a meta support,I go Ganesha - he kills just fine and blame the others, the hypocrite. When I want to kill people and take the credit, Fafnir.

    As Rodin said, there are no bad guardians, but I give a pass to Khepri, because he's kind of an one-trick-pony - bad and dangerous initiation, weird buff that asks you to be behind your allies, a simple root, no damage at all.

    Forgot about Cerberus, but I agree that he is not top tier as a support. His stun is awkward to confirm, his slow/shred is annoying and his ult is okay.

    Also, there is a typo in your sig

    best guardian is Athena; "always useful" type of guardian that has a kit that is relatively easy/straight forward to understand and actively encourages front lining, engaging, and aggressive play.

    worst guardian is any guardian that is sitting behind the mage and hunter. No exceptions (none). You can peel from the front, distract, etc. you're not really supposed to bait your dps so you can engage. You're supposed to bait *their* dps into being engaged on.
