Probally a dumb question but - What does the (Guard) damage taken- on ducal guard mean?

I assume it does exactly what it implies. Reduces damage taken on a succesful Guard. Guard being the Hand-to-Hand equivalent of a shield block.

Thats what I thought, so with capped guard would this be a good atma slot for tanking monk? And how about Pld use?

Can't argue with -50% Damage taken under 50% health.

Both jobs have there own forums with a bazillion atma posts from people who likely know more than me.

But I would say no, it is a wasted slot. Any WHM worth there salt won't let you be under 50% for more than a second.

players cap at 50% in general for PDT MDT and with shell MDT is easy to cap, making a damage taken - atma useless due to gear. you can always throw on PDT gear instead of using this atma, but good luck throwing on razed ruin style gear if you decide to replace that atma.

Pets cap at 87.5% in general so 50% atma plus the beastmasters gear really helps them. They also have much more hp and taken less damage in general with stout servant so it's easier to manage

the -50% damage taken under 50% health only applies to your base health before cruor buffs iirc x.x
