Arcane Compendium EntryEdit
Formed out of a core of stone, the Earth Guardian is a hardy opponent that can withstand incredible amounts of physical attacks. With whirling attacks and the strength of the earth itself, be prepared for a fight.
Recommended Level: 25
You will need:
- 8 Obsidian blocks
- 1 Chiseled stone brick
- 4 Vinteum torches
- 8 Iron inlays
- 1 Chimerite (consumed)
- 1 Emerald (consumed)
- 1 Blue topaz (consumed)
The Earth guardian is summoned by placing a 3 by 3 ring of iron inlays on top of a 3 by 3 platform of obsidian, with chiseled stone brick in the center, and one vinteum torch to each side of the inlay. Throw a chimerite, a blue topaz and an emerald(in that order) into the middle of the ring to summon the Earth Guardian.
Upon summoning, the Earth Guardian will carve out a 21 by 6 square centered one block above the chiseled stone block as to not break the iron inlays or vineum torches. All the blocks and ores in this area are broken and dropped as items(which for most people causes crazy lag, so make sure to have a good/not-so-laggy computer first).
Upon summoning, the Earth Guardian will cleave out a large area of the surrounding blocks,including resistent blocks like obsidian, so it would be wise to summon it outside of your base (unless you have bedrock walls).
Despite the immense strength of the Earth Guardian, it moves at a reasonably slow pace. With a leap spell, it is possible to outrun the Earth Guardian and move out of its aggro range. It is best to face the Earth Guardian with Mage Armour and a couple of Greater Mana Potions to prevent the armour from draining all your mana. Use leap spells to dodge attacks from the Earth Guardian, healing spells to heal any severe wounds, and a cheap Frost spell to deal damage to the Earth Guardian, Life Drain spell will also works well. Because of his very high armor, avoid melee combat as swords do little to no damage. As a note Earth Guardian is also fireproof, so Ignition or Fire Aspect will deal no damage. You can use diminished casting to conserve mana as you may find your armour draining most of your mana to repair itself. It's possible to create a 2 block tall shafts in a way to create a retreat for recover. Also an easy way to kill the earth guardian is if you have flight from any mod just fly up high into the air and shoot any projectile at the earth guardian and he will then teleport all the way up to you and fall weakness is ice spells. Another easy but slow way to kill the earth guardian without magic is to get a bucket of sewage from the MineFactory Reloaded mod and trap the guardian. Then drop the bucket of sewage on it so then it will slowly die from the sewage. When it is at one HP, hit it and it will die. Another way to kill the earth guardian without magic is to get punji sticks from Tinkers' Construct mod and place them at the same elevation as the summoning, the earth guardian will slowly die from the punji sticks constant damage and you can pick up the loot.
