To be more detailed, I wanna try to learn to play using clerics but got a question. Which role is easier to play on 8-man HC nests (IDN and RuDN), healer (saint) or tank (guardian)?

Both are going to be equally hard in their own ways.

Saint does not require that much positioning and your main role is to "heal" and "cure." As long as those two are attended to, you are free to do anything you want.

Guardian requires provoke and luring to suitable positioning, ensuring that the boss does not do anything erratic like turning and lastly to keep up guardian shell. It is a full time job.

I forgot to add my point: saint is easier to play.

Saint is quite easy to play as long as you don't try to squeeze out his DPS potential. My habit when running HC raid as a saint is eating + drinking + chatting during run ...
On the other hand, DPS saint in raid is a bit difficult.

Saint easiest to play and less stressful to gear compared to a guardian that needs to stack HP to give healthier Guard Bubbles plus Saint tends to be recruited more compared to a Guardian in 4man nests (e.g. Granom, Sea Dragon, etc...)
