So, seeing as how the Defiant and Guardians both have ascended forces, I was wondering what exactly the difference is. I know as a Defiant, you are created by stealing the souls from last remaining guardians and then hurled back through time in order to stop the apocalypse. But what about the Guardians? Are their ascended created before or after the world burns? Did they also go back in time?
If you play the beginning stories you will know the difference
Long story short, Guardians are chosen by the Vigil and are at their beck and call. Their beginning story is 20 years in the past. Defiant are created by technology, and their story begins in the future, right near the end of the world. At the end they are transported back to the present.
Functionally they are identical.
