Flee from the Guardian and make your way to the next marked area.
If you somehow managed to defeat the Guardian at this point, the battle will immediately end and you'll miss out the other chests and items in the remaining areas of the map.
3 Head to the Unearthed Guardians marked on your map and activate both of them to cripple the enemy Guardian.

You will also unlock Zelda as a playable character in this part of the battle.

Make use of the Order feature to move around the map and quickly finish the objective.

Road to the Ancient Lab Tips and Strategies

Make Use of the Order Feature

Order feature.jpg

You can split the party members and order them to move to a specific location. Simply press the + button, select a character, and choose a location. Make use of this feature to accomplish tasks quickly especially if the objectives are far from each other.

Also, take note that the order only executes when you're not controlling the character you ordered to move.

How to Beat the Guardian

Activate the Unearthed Guardians

Activating the Unearthed Guardians as instructed will deal a significant amount of damage to the enemy Guardian and stagger it for a while, making it easier to take down later.

Parry or Dodge Its Beams

Parrying beams.jpg

The Guardian's beams are its most dangerous attack since the Guardian tracks your movement before firing them at a high speed.

If you're using Link, you can deflect a beam by performing a parry (hold ZL then press Y). The right moment to parry is when the Guardian's eye lights up.

However, if you're using Zelda or Impa, you can only dodge sideways with the same timing as Link's parry to avoid the attack.

Move Everyone to the Guardian

If the other party members are still far away, order them to move to the Guardian's location to help out in taking it down. You're going to need all the help you can get especially if you're underleveled or still getting used to combat.
