    Why is Xing Tian a guardian?

    look at his kit. you see that? no supportive abilities. his passive? only helps himself. the only supportive-esque feature he has is his ult. he is much more like a warrior. he can give chase, he can do massive amounts of damage. his damage is currently broken. a full damage build with him, and his ult can do 1600 damage. if you tell me that's not broken that's a lie because mages who are more structured for damage cant do that much with their ults. so why is he under the guardian tab? because hi-rez doesnt care. he is nothing like a guardian. he isnt supportive, but he can clearly kill by himself.

    No support ability? Except his knock up, his root and his ultimate, yep. No support abilities...

    dont forget that his 1 reduces aa-dmg, which is a supportive ability as well (all together more support abilities than ares)

    Guardians aren't restricted to supporting.
    He's still trash for a tank.

    All CC is helpful to the team, he has damage reduction on AA's so hunters don't 1 shot kill, he has root and knockup

    his passive? only helps himself.
    So ares, ymir, athena, hades, khumbakarna, you know all those guardians? Yeah they also only have passives for themselves. Khepri and cabrakan are the minority

    the only supportive-esque feature he has is his ult. he is much more like a warrior.
    All guardians are just magical warrior (Except for hades

    he can give chase, he can do massive amounts of damage.
    As can most guardians if they build damage like athena

    his damage is currently broken. a full damage build with him, and his ult can do 1600 damage.
    Athena can do 750 WITHOUT building damage so imagine if she built damage, yeah it pales in comparison oh and what about ymir? it does 1100 damage without building power

    if you tell me that's not broken that's a lie because mages who are more structured for damage cant do that much with their ults.
    So scylla, chronos, freya, nu wa, ra, goobis, isis, aphrodite, noodles, ah puch, hel, janus, nox and many more all rely on their ults right?

    so why is he under the guardian tab? because hi-rez doesnt care. he is nothing like a guardian. he isnt supportive, but he can clearly kill by himself.
    So does he have to be the pitch perfect cookie cutter of what you consider a guardian to be supportive? Anyone can be a support, and xing tian can definitely be one. Also, anyone can kill by themselves. and what exactly does hirez not care about?

    He's meant to be a magical tank.

    The 5 roles in this game are not indicative of the roles they should play.

    See, Freya who is a magical hunter, Ao Kuang who is a magical assassin, Bastet who is a physical mage/caster.

    Xing Tian is a magical warrior.
    Wow...

    How is a guy with unconditional 150% scaling meant to be a tank?

    Scaling doesn't have much to do with being a tank. You could give him 999999% scaling and he would still be a tank because he has a lot of health and higher defense
