Darksiders 2 Official Strategy Guide 19



The Guardian is one of the most epic and difficult bosses in Darksiders 2, and you will need a lot of skill, patience, and strategy to defeat it. That's why we have created this guide for you, to help you learn everything you need to know about this formidable foe and how to overcome it. In this guide, you will discover:



  • How to prepare for the battle with the Guardian



  • How to avoid or counter the Guardian's attacks



  • How to damage the Guardian and win the fight



Are you ready to face the Guardian and prove yourself as a true warrior? Then read on and follow our guide!


Preparing for the Battle




Before you can challenge the Guardian, you need to make sure you are well-equipped and well-prepared. Here are some tips on what items and skills you should have before entering the arena:



  • A good scythe and a good secondary weapon. The scythe is your main weapon for dealing damage, while the secondary weapon can be used for faster attacks or special effects. We recommend using a hammer or a mace for your secondary weapon, as they can stun or knock back the Guardian.



  • A full wrath bar and some wrath potions. Wrath is your resource for using your abilities, such as Harvest or Teleport Slash. These abilities can be very useful for dealing extra damage or avoiding attacks. You should also have some wrath potions in case you run out of wrath during the fight.



  • Some health potions and some reaper potions. Health potions are essential for healing yourself when you take damage, while reaper potions can fill up your reaper meter. The reaper meter allows you to transform into your reaper form, which gives you increased damage, speed, and defense. You should save your reaper form for when you need it most.



  • The Deathgrip ability. This is a mandatory ability that you will get during the main quest, and it allows you to grapple onto certain objects or enemies. You will need this ability to reach the Guardian and to damage it in certain ways.



Once you have everything ready, you can head to the Fjord area in the Forge Lands, where you will find a large stone door that leads to the Guardian's lair. You will need to activate four switches around the door by using your Deathgrip ability on them. After that, you can enter the door and face the Guardian.


The Guardian's Attacks and How to Avoid Them




The Guardian is a massive enemy that has three phases, each with different attacks and patterns. You will need to learn how to dodge or block each attack, as they can deal a lot of damage and knock you down. Here are the Guardian's attacks and how to avoid them:


Phase 1: The Guardian's Body




In this phase, the Guardian will use its body to attack you, mainly by swinging its arms or stomping its feet. It will also occasionally throw rocks at you or slam the ground to create shockwaves. Here are the best strategies to avoid these attacks:



  • When the Guardian swings its arms, you can either dodge to the side or block with your secondary weapon. Blocking will reduce the damage and prevent you from being knocked back, but it will also drain your wrath. Dodging will avoid the damage completely, but it will also put you further away from the Guardian.



  • When the Guardian stomps its feet, you can either dodge away or jump over the shockwave. Dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a good position to attack, while jumping will allow you to stay close to the Guardian and use your Deathgrip ability on its legs.



  • When the Guardian throws rocks at you, you can either dodge to the side or block with your secondary weapon. Blocking will reduce the damage and allow you to deflect the rocks back at the Guardian, while dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a better position to attack.



  • When the Guardian slams the ground, you can either dodge away or jump over the shockwave. Dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a good position to attack, while jumping will allow you to stay close to the Guardian and use your Deathgrip ability on its head.



Phase 2: The Guardian's Heart




In this phase, the Guardian will expose its heart, which is its weak point. However, it will also summon smaller stone enemies called Constructs to protect it. It will also occasionally fire a laser beam from its chest or create a vortex around it. Here are the best strategies to avoid these attacks:



  • When the Guardian fires a laser beam from its chest, you can either dodge to the side or block with your secondary weapon. Blocking will reduce the damage and allow you to deflect the beam back at the Guardian, while dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a better position to attack.



  • When the Guardian creates a vortex around it, you can either dodge away or use your Deathgrip ability on its heart. Dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a safe distance, while using your Deathgrip ability will pull you towards the heart and allow you to deal massive damage.



  • When the Guardian summons Constructs, you can either ignore them or kill them. Ignoring them will allow you to focus on attacking the heart, but they will also harass you and deal damage. Killing them will reduce their numbers and give you some health and wrath orbs, but it will also take time and attention away from the heart.



Phase 3: The Guardian's Soul




In this phase, the Guardian will lose its body and become a floating orb of energy. It will fly around the arena and shoot projectiles at you. It will also occasionally charge at you or create a shockwave around it. Here are the best strategies to avoid these attacks:



  • When the Guardian shoots projectiles at you, you can either dodge to the side or block with your secondary weapon. Blocking will reduce the damage and allow you to deflect the projectiles back at the Guardian, while dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a better position to attack.



  • When the Guardian charges at you, you can either dodge away or use your Deathgrip ability on it. Dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a safe distance, while using your Deathgrip ability will pull you towards it and allow you to deal massive damage.



  • When the Guardian creates a shockwave around it, you can either dodge away or jump over it. Dodging will avoid the damage and put you in a safe distance, while jumping will allow you to stay close to it and use your Deathgrip ability on it.



How to Damage the Guardian and Win the Fight




The Guardian is a tough enemy that has a lot of health and defense, so you will need to use your weapons, abilities, and environment wisely to deal enough damage and win the fight. Here are some tips on how to damage the Guardian and win the fight:


Phase 1: The Guardian's Body




Phase 1: The Guardian's Body




In this phase, your main goal is to destroy each of its limbs: two arms and two legs. To do this, you need to use your Deathgrip ability on the glowing spots on its limbs and then attack them with your weapons. Here are some tips on how to do this:



  • When the Guardian swings its arms, you can use your Deathgrip ability on its elbows and then attack them with your scythe. This will deal a lot of damage and eventually break the arms.



  • When the Guardian stomps its feet, you can use your Deathgrip ability on its knees and then attack them with your secondary weapon. This will deal some damage and eventually break the legs.



  • When the Guardian throws rocks at you, you can deflect them back at it with your secondary weapon. This will deal some damage and stun it for a few seconds, giving you a chance to use your Deathgrip ability on its head and then attack it with your scythe. This will deal a lot of damage and eventually destroy the head.



  • When the Guardian slams the ground, you can use your Deathgrip ability on its chest and then attack it with your scythe. This will deal some damage and eventually expose its heart.



Once you have destroyed all of its limbs and exposed its heart, you can move on to the next phase.


Phase 2: The Guardian's Heart




In this phase, your main goal is to damage the Guardian's heart as much as possible. To do this, you need to use your Deathgrip ability on the heart and then attack it with your weapons or abilities. Here are some tips on how to do this:



  • When the Guardian fires a laser beam from its chest, you can deflect it back at it with your secondary weapon. This will deal a lot of damage and stun it for a few seconds, giving you a chance to use your Deathgrip ability on its heart and then attack it with your scythe or Harvest ability.



  • When the Guardian creates a vortex around it, you can use your Deathgrip ability on its heart and then attack it with your scythe or Teleport Slash ability. This will deal a lot of damage and pull you out of the vortex.



  • When the Guardian summons Constructs, you can ignore them or kill them. If you ignore them, you can focus on using your Deathgrip ability on the heart and then attacking it with your weapons or abilities. If you kill them, you can get some health and wrath orbs and also use their corpses as projectiles by using your Deathgrip ability on them and then throwing them at the heart.



Once you have damaged the heart enough, you can move on to the final phase.


Phase 3: The Guardian's Soul




In this phase, your main goal is to finish off the Guardian's soul and end the fight. To do this, you need to use your Deathgrip ability on the soul and then attack it with your weapons or abilities. Here are some tips on how to do this:



  • When the Guardian shoots projectiles at you, you can deflect them back at it with your secondary weapon. This will deal some damage and stun it for a few seconds, giving you a chance to use your Deathgrip ability on its soul and then attack it with your scythe or Harvest ability.



  • When the Guardian charges at you, you can use your Deathgrip ability on its soul and then attack it with your scythe or Teleport Slash ability. This will deal a lot of damage and stop its charge.



  • When the Guardian creates a shockwave around it, you can use your Deathgrip ability on its soul and then attack it with your scythe or Harvest ability. This will deal a lot of damage and avoid the shockwave.



Once you have depleted the soul's health bar, you can use your reaper form to deliver the final blow and end the fight.
