In an earlier post I linked a number of Guardian Videos. Here is a list of guardian attributes we can garner from them.
Previously the Guardian was of the lower health bracket of the professions but now it looks to be in the medium range of health pool.
(Edit: Health Pools for most classes have changes, or so it seems. Not sure where this places the Guardian)
