Yes, I'm a bit crazy. I freely admit that I can overthink things when it comes to gaming. *Smile*
I've been trying to figure out which weapon combinations best fit my play-style and it has been maddening - in a good way. I love the options and how each can significantly alter how a class plays. My only problem is that I keep changing my mind. Most every combination on the Guardian feels good! Flipping back and forth using a Skill Calculator wasn't helping much with my decision. I needed something I could review all at once.
This is NOT scientific. I loosely categorized the skills based on offense only, defense or some combination. Obviously, the damage/offense output is "potential" output based on the stats provided in the tooltips which won't consider talent specs and gear. For me, this was good enough and gave me a bird's eye view of the current options.
The matrix is very useful when watching game-play videos on YouTube. Now I can easily identify what options were available to that player versus how they elected to play the class and how well they did.
Wanted to share with other would-be Guardians out there. *Smile*
