Recommended Runes[edit]



  • Once you enter this shrine, head forward into the main room.
  • From the Center will raise a Guardian Scout III armed with a Ancient Battle Axe+ and a Guardian Shield+.
  • If you have anything that is either Lightning or Shock, you can use this to stun the Guardian Scout for the first 3 phases of the fight.
  • During the first phase, the Guardian Scout will move in toward Link, attacking with its axe.
  • Once in a while, it will leap back and hold the axe horizontal to the floor and start rotating its torso.
  • When it is doing this, maneuver Link so there is a stone pillar between him and the Guardian Scout.
  • The Guardian Scout will begin its bull rush attack and slam into the pillar, becoming stunned in the process.
  • Use this short stun time to move in and attack the Guardian free of concern.
  • In the second phase of the fight, when it has lost 50% of its health, it will occasionally move back from and start spinning it head while emitting a beam of light.
  • This will create an Updraft around it. Link can fire arrows at it from a distance, lob a bomb at it and detonate it when it is close to the Guardian or run into the Updraft and use the paraglider to gain height before using the slow time aim with his bow.
  • When reduced to low health, about 75% damaged, it will retract its arms and start charging up a 4 shot volley. It has a large blue aura the is collapsing on the Scout. When it does, the attack will begin shortly.
  • Link can easily dodge these shots if he is fairly close to the Guardian by jumping left or right.
  • Only attack the Guardian while it is charging during this final phase.
  • Once you defeat the Guardian Scout, head for the back room which is now open.
  • Go up the stairs to the chest there. Inside the chest you will find a Knight's Bow
  • Climb the stairs and interact with the Monk Muwo Jeem.

Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Fighting the Axe and Shield Guardian can be somewhat tricky.
  • Use the pillars as much as possible and come in armed with electric arrows and weapons.
