Guardians are special rift defenders that can be summoned into battle at key strategic locations in each battleground.. Each guardian has a preferred home location, receiving +35% Health and Damage as benefits if they are summoned at home. Guardians Stats scale with account level.

You will receive the Lion Guardian by default and the Blacksmith Guardian as a secured drop from one of the first chests opened, the rest of guardians can be received from chests. Each player can bring 2 guardians with them into a battleground. Once placed, the guardian is taken from you for the remainder of the match. Guardians have limited health, can't be healed and can die while defending their point. Once unlocked, a guardian will never need to be unlocked again.

The Consumable Guardian Potion allows the players to summon a third guardian.
