Dash dodge as Hunter is a waste in most situations unless an attack is unblockable or you know what you're doing with setting up a counter attack in a specific way. Perfect Guard is the preferred method of defense as it's built into your PAs when charging once you have the charge parry skill besides being able to just press the weapon action button, and more importantly all of the methods mentioned before activate Perfect Guard PP gain skill giving you 20PP per guard. In addition all three weapons (now 2 since Partizan ring isn't in yet) have guard rings that let you immediately counter with a free PA with buffed damage at their max level, making JG an even better option for many situations. It's not even all since all grab PAs for Wired Lances have guard frames on their beginning, and sword Blaze Parry is the best DPS on the weapon while requiring you to perform a Perfect Guard during its duration.
Guard Stance is generally the preferred Hunter main skill but going Fury Stance isn't going to be a massive loss for your DPS. If you want to use the same tree as a subclass, Fury Stance also offers much better damage. Guard Stance when used properly will still do better damage than Fury Stance, and for now will also enable you to take more other skills as it's cheaper.
