The Sanctum Guardian is the first boss of the Temple of Aminishi elite dungeon. She is a large Crassian that guards the temple's sanctum to prevent both outsiders and unworthy acolytes from exploring the inner sections of the temple.

Players may use a fishy treat to skip the fight with the Sanctum Guardian.

In Story mode her health is reduced by 50% and her damage output is reduced by 90%.

Drops[edit | edit source]

In normal mode 2 drops are rolled; the 100% drop and a common mob drop.
In story mode Crassian Allegiance is the only drop; however its drop rate is higher compared to normal mode.[1]

100%[edit | edit source]

The Guardian drops onyx dust, unless a fishy treat or Crassian Allegiance is dropped, which replaces the dust.

  2. ^ Has a base chance of (10+X)/100 where X is the amount of normal mode kills.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Damage taken in story mode of elite dungeons was reduced from 33% of normal mode to 10% in an update on the 15th of October 2018.
  • The first letters of each of the words in The Sanctum Guardian's examine text spell Clawdia, which this boss physically resembles.
  • Due to a bug where monsters bigger than 5x5 could not be hit by melee AoE abilities away from the southwest corner of their hitbox, the Sanctum Guardian didn't take any damage from abilities such as Cleave, Quake and Flurry when attacked from the north side. This issue has since been fixed as of an update on 9 August 2021.
