Stone Guardian Description
Large, animated suits of armour made of stone. Similar to Great Stone Knights, though slightly smaller, wielding a Stone Greataxe, and lacking a shield.
- Normal Greataxe Attack
- Two Handed Greataxe Bash
- With high HP, high magic defence, high Poise, and powerful attacks, these devils are no doddle to dispatch. Though most of their attacks are clearly telegraphed, they also hit very hard, so the slightest mistake could be fatal. Blocking is also impractical unless you have an extremely high Stability shield and have lots of stamina. Watch out for their signature attack, when they slam their axe into the ground and pull it out with explosive force. The telltale sign of this attack is the screen shaking while the guardian makes a low groaning sound. They won't use the explosion pull if you're too far away, however. All in all, the best way to deal with these stoney souls is patience. Attack only when it's absolutely safe to. And when in doubt, run!
