How to Beat Guardian Stalkers

Parry or Dodge Its Beams

HWAoC - Parry or Dodge Its Beams (Guardian).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.

Follow Rune Prompts

When it starts to coil up it's legs, you'll get a Stasis Rune prompt (hold L then press X). If you miss the Rune Prompt you can always perform a Perfect Dodge and Flurry Rush when it spins towards you.

How to Perform a Flurry Rush

Road to the Ancient Lab

Activate the Unearthed Guardians

This method is only available in playing Chapter 2: Road to the Ancient Lab. 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.

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.
