Please, revert these changes! Not because it makes the raids too hard, but because it makes the raid more time consuming which is not the point of guardian raids.
This should be a daily, farming activity which in the meantime teaches you the basics.
Guardian raids are not end game contents and are not meant to be this time consuming.
While I understand that you got feedback from the minority of beta players, but you should know that these raids are used to be farmed and are pretty much prefectly tuned on the other servers.
The first tier of raid bosses are not even hard (yes, that was the point where the beta players herpderped because they are so easy) because they are slowley intruducing mechanics.
Tier 2 is intruducing wipe mechanics , again… slowely and make players farming mats + learning these essential tricks along with interrupts and positioning.
The more you go higher from this point you will eventually realise that they are actually not that easy but somewhat still manageable in daily routine without spending too much time on them. Again: these guardian raids are meant to be done on daily basis.
The 50% + hp might not sound much but it is actually make it more like a chore. It’s fun to be done with a boss in a sensible time and get rewarded for that but making them into a bullet sponge will give us nothing and will have no real positive impact on them.
I understand that some of the beta players thought that it’s a feat of strength to kill these little guys, but in reality they just didn’t know that they are actually not WoW like raid bosses.
The misconception might came from that. WoW raid bosses are something else and I think many of them thought that these guys are the end game etc.
Tl.dr.: The current 50% hp buff is just makes it a struggle/chore while this should be a teaching/material farming daily activity.
And most importantly: The forum requires Thar as avatar.
Just to be sure that I’m not talking because I can’t clear anything or something:

Another one so it can be more creditable:
Also: I’m not stuck anywhere, only my gear score cap’s me clearing everything.
I only do guardians in a PUG or SOLO and as I said, if AGS has the data, they can prove it.
Again, I wont spend more time than I should with them.
People who complain about the nerf: What’s the point? You are mad cause more people will be able to clear the same content as you? Are you literally crying that the game will be more accessible to everyone?
Why do not you ask for higher difficulity? I for one, I would totally support something like “Unleashed” or whatever Guardian raids.
As you see, I clear every content yet I support the nerfs cause that’s what an mmo is about: players, fun, accessibility and respect toward our time.
