An Ash Guardian is a summoned Daedra found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.



  • Ash Guardians shoot a blast of ash at enemies as a medium-ranged attack, similar to the Steam Attack of a Dwarven Centurion. If the Dragonborn gets too close, they will cast a flame explosion.

  • Summoning an Ash Guardian without a Heart Stone in the inventory will cause it to be "unbound" and thus hostile to everyone around it.
    • If an "unbound" Ash Guardian is summoned it will not be considered as the Dragonborn's conjured creature, thus summoning another creature will not cause it to disappear.
