Eldritch Guardians are an uncommon hostile mob possessing strong ranged and melee attacks. When killed, they often drop Alienis and Exanimis Wisp Essence. They also have a rare drop, the Eldritch Eye, that is used in the ritual needed to reach the Outer Lands. When present, they bring with them a fog that greatly limits the visibility of the player, allowing them to attack unexpectedly from this fog. They can appear in three different settings, with the most common being in the Outer Lands naturally and around Eldritch Obelisks. However, they can also spawn near the player as a Warp event.
