it says in the description that tactics guardian has a passive chance of guarding everyone in the group. I've used it several times in group situations, and have only ever seen it lower my attack rolls. can this be looked into? i don't know if it's not working, or if i just have terrible luck.

It's really buggy, sorry. On the to-do list to fix. It should be happening fairly frequently.

Found an issue and possibly corrected it. The issue was that it was completely disabled... though we're not entirely sure why it was completely disabled, so re-enabling it may not necessarily be the full fix.

Go ahead and play around with it for a bit, and if you notice it not working or doing weird bug stuff, let us know please.

The tactic is working great, however, would it be possible somehow to make it exclude things like rook minions or druidic allies? If it's not possible I understand, but it would be fantastic.

In regards to the tactic - would it also be possible to make it so that if you don't have a weapon or shield in hand it defaults back to 'none' or rolls your dodge roll like other tactics currently do? Currently it gives you 0 defense roll options if you don't have anything equipped and are in this tactic.

Considering you're taking the hit for someone else, dodge doesn't seem like it should count, as to defaulting back to none, sometimes you got to take that hit when you're trying to keep people safe. It's a poor guardian who protects only when they take little or no risk themselves.

This is more in regards to accidentally staying in that tactic and being attacked randomly with no defensive roll because you have no weapon or shield equipped. Other tactics allow a dodge roll in this case or move out of that tactic to accommodate. This one doesn't.

I'm not saying people should be dodging while guarding people, but hopefully while actually guarding someone you have a proper weapon or shield in use.
