Ruin Guardian is probably one of the most annoying low level bosses in Genshin Impact. Many newcomers have a hard time attacking the Guardians of the Relic, even with full-armed 5-star characters, still need some attention if you want to defeat this “difficult” boss.
Right from the start of the game, new players will quickly encounter the Guardian of the Relic. This boss will still appear even when you have reached a higher level of adventure, even in numbers that make “36 next run is the best” seems a good idea for new players. However, you have to face the Guardian of the Relic to get ingredients or do certain tasks, sometimes 3-5 at a time.
Relic Guardian in Genshin Impact is a powerful boss, even challenging characters from long range because of the ability to launch rockets according to the character. If you get close, the Guardian will activate the pedal skill or spin two large arms chasing you. However, to defeat the Ruin Guardian, the player must have an archer on the team. For players who do not have a strong archer character, we have to rely on Amber to be the “savior”.
With an archer character, the player only needs to “charge” and aim his arrow between the eyes or the bright spot on the Monuments Guardian’s back. From 2-4 shots will help this monster fall for a while, at this point, you can send your melee characters – especially DPS with claymore – to deal the most damage to the Guardians.
In addition, characters using Claymore can still do a lot of damage to the Guardian of the Relic even if it doesn’t fall. If you want to use the bow and arrow character, you should aim at its eye or shoulder pad to deal damage. You can also use Amber to ignite and use another character to create an elemental reaction, dealing damage to the Guardian.
The most difficult skill to evade of Ruin Guardian is when it launches the missile “chase” according to the player. You need to dash left or right to avoid the missiles that can drain your HP column. Also, its spinning skill is quite annoying. Run as fast as you can and let it strike on a wide, flat land – you won’t want to be stuck in the corner with how far the Ruin Guardian is spinning.
Of course, it sounds simple in theory, but when you have to fight 2-5 Monuments Guard for a while, the situation will turn around. You can still use food to revive your character and heal if you decide to “live and die” with the Guardians.
Ruins Guardian exists scattered around the map of Genshin Impact. You can easily find its location using Proof of Stake. However, they may also appear in other locations, and players level 20-25 will constantly encounter them. They will also appear in some Secret Scenes and in Luo Sham Canh (abyss).
