Guardian Fatigue Effect Texture[edit]

Is the ghostly guardian effect a separate texture somewhere? Or does it somehow use the regular Elder Guardian model/texture? Cultist O (talk) 20:17, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

The Fatigue effect lasts a little to long for survival and I was searching through files but I couldn't find anything for the Ghostly texture please help. 04:55, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
The "ghostly" texture is simply a transparent version of the default elder guardian, it even uses the same model. KnightMiner t/c 16:08, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Summon Command Doesn't Work[edit]

I know that you can summon the Elder by doing /summon Guardian ~ ~ ~ {Elder:1} as I've used it before. But in 14w25b, it appears to be broken. Does anyone know whether this is a bug or if Mojang changed the way elders and guardians are distinguished? - Exhelah t - c 03:29, 20 June 2014 (UTC) Try /summon elder_guardian 02:23, 8 October 2019 (UTC) IDK

More heath?[edit]

How do i summon the elder guardian with more than 30 heath? (please tell me ASAP because i need it for a youtube video!) 20:16, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

You can summon a mob with more than its regular health with a Mob Generator. (Ex.) --Supernova1114 (talk) 04:06, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

On peaceful[edit]

Do Elderguardians (and guardians) spawn on peaceful like endergradon does? If so I can never go to sea again ;_; –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 15:12, 16 July 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Both varieties despawn when you change the gamemode to peaceful Cultist O (talk) 18:16, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
I suspect I accidentally wiped an Ocean Monument of them by using Peaceful Mode not even within range, of them.. I could swear I had just used Creative to show the structure, to someone. Then, well, after occasional Lag-related use elsewhere, I no longer found them in that one structure. I'll still search for the second, though, and confirm if it wiped them from the world. If so, I can only wonder if this might relate to their unusual one-time Spawning "behavior," and /or Ghost effect, even, perhaps. Yilante 18:05, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I confirmed that these 1-time Spawners (at Generation of that structure /those chunks), are removed by Peaceful, and /or Creative (think I read somewhere here that yes, they have a similar effect on certain Hostile Mobs? - as in that they Despawn stuff specially-created, and perhaps permanently, even??). Luckily, I proved they still exist at the first O.M. I found, which I'd most-definitely used neither Peaceful nor Creative, at.
So, the key is to not-Ever, as you say, use Peaceful (and possibly Creative) within even Beach (which may not be visible, over a higher ground, approaching it) range of an Ocean, and definitely never see the Ocean(s) again, if you don't want to affect the 1-time Spawning (at Generation, again) of the Elder Guardians. Despawning them is not-undoable within Creative, as of yet, and it might be best to Map-out somehow the edges of the Oceans, especially the Ocean Monuments, ahead of time, before switching to Peaceful, to avoid this (unsure of Creative). Yilante 23:01, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
I've now repeatedly used Creative to visit O M's, and the E G's were still present - rather than being wiped instantly - so I'll consider that a win (rather than returning and rechecking). This is because rather than Peaceful, I had it on Hard Mode, as usual. Yilante 21:35, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Jeb Signed It[edit]

Funnily enough, Jeb sort of signed the Elder Guardian's texture file. Found inside the jarfile for Snapshot 14w32b. Jeb appears to have placed his name inside of the Elder Guardian texture. Not sure where I'd put the image to show it, but I thought it was cool. If anyone wants to find it, just open up the jar and go to assets\minecraft\textures\entity\guardian_elder.png Nyctodarkmatter (talk) 14:27, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Wpuld this be considered a boss?[edit]

It appears to be a boss to me. PTR_91 (Talk) 17:54, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Never mind, no boss health bar. PTR_91 (Talk) 17:54, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Summoning? where does it go???[edit]

I summoned an elder guardian using /summon Guardian ~ ~ ~ {Elder:1} and it says it was summoned but it disappears.. I even checked to see if i was on peaceful but i wasn't... can someone help me? BlackTomCatt (talk) 22:48, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

I used the / Command to Spawn /Summon one to the (dried out, first) Entrance chamber to the O M (I'd accidentally cleared on Peaceful). I then proceeded to kill it and 2 others to replace the lost ones, 1 at a time re creating them, and I'm not sure if it requires Air, and, in any case, any form of Egg (including a Chicken, heh), requires a surface, to Break /be placed, against (open Water shouldn't work, I'm guessing, if no Solid surface, is close enough [as for the Chicken Eggs, the Chicks /Baby Chickens might be too far away to see /generate them floating upwards if under Water, so I dunno about other, the Spawn Eggs, other than that Guardians are not - unlike Octopods - Damaged by being in Air, and can even contact Solids with no Suffocation, Damage unless cramped]). ~ Yilante 13:49, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Mob Type[edit]

I notice that elder guardians are called monsters rather than bosses. Why?
~From Contrapple Grid Empty Map.png 03:03, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

What would qualify them as a boss? They are rare mobs, but they lack what makes boss mobs unique, the health bar. KnightMiner t/c 03:18, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Their finiteness; in theory there are even few than there are Withers. You are right, though. I would call them the game's only mini-bosses. -- 21:29, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Elder Guardian jumpscare?[edit]

I found an ocean monument, and when I was swimming around near it, a picture of the Elder Guardian's face popped up onscreen. Is this supposed to be a jumpscare, or is it a glitch? Enderizz (talk) 22:27, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Elder Guardian#Combat, third paragraph. KnightMiner t/c 22:33, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Whoops. Heh. Enderizz (talk) 13:57, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Reply (from theneonracer137)

No, the ghostly elder guardian isn't a glitch. When you're within a elder guardians range, you will see the Ghostly image. It will give you mining fatigue 3. Mojang did this because the ocean monument is supposed to be a maze and they do not want you breaking your way through. It's sort of useless to bring a pickaxe. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Theneonracer137 (talkcontribs) at 4:25, 24 December 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Mini boss[edit]

I consider it a mini boss as it has high hp and power. Maybe mojang will add mini boss music to it. 05:34, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Updating to 1.9[edit]

The drops section is confusing to me; someone other than myself may have to tackle it. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 18:55, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

What is changing in 1.11?[edit]

The sentence "If killed by the player, it also drops a single dry sponge.[until 1.11] In 1.11,[upcoming] a player kill will drop a single wet sponge." doesn't make sense, could someone clarify this please? 21:25, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Prior to 1.11, a dry sponge is dropped. Starting in 1.11, a wet sponge is dropped. See the sponge page for the difference. -- Orthotopetalk 21:38, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Fish Drops[edit]

This page states twice that raw fish drops when its' killed: one as a 50% drop and one as a rare 2.5% drop. Which is it? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by NeutralGuy (talkcontribs) at 17:48, 20 August 2017 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Both; it is a common drop and also a rare drop. -- Orthotopetalk 18:18, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
And concerning your edit about cooked fish: the rare drop accesses the fishing loot table, which is not able to provide cooked fish as it doesn't make use of the "minecraft:furnace_smelt" function. Skylinerw (talk) 18:31, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Reverted changes to source links[edit]

This edit modified the URL of two source links to by removing "\en-US". The web site handles the resulting URL by inserting a default language code. I wasn't able to determine whether it's always "en-US" or varies depending on the browser-provided info. If it's always "en-US", the edit was useless because it has no effect. If it depends on the browser info, the edit would cause the link to go to a variable page, and that's a problem because the source was a definite page, namely the US English version. I can imagine that the editor responsible, whose native language is (I assume) Swedish, might like to see the source translated into Swedish, but the Swedish page (if it exists) was not the source of the quote, and we have no way to be certain that the pages for other languages contain the same material, or even exist. In short, source reference links should never be modified to make the target page variable. I am therefore reverting the edit. – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 14:31, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

REMOVE "en-us" tag in the external links to[edit]

Hello. Can I shortly remove the "en-us" tag from the external links so the links go to the local language instead of always english? This is done due to I does not like links go always to english page, not local language page? Philip57sundfors (talk) 07:04, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

As I explained above, you cannot change a reference link for this purpose. You seem to think a ref link is like any other hyperlink—that it's there for you to follow for more information—but it's more than that. A ref link's purpose is to show where the information came from, to prove that it's authentic. I admit that a translated page could serve that purpose if it's an accurate translation, but we have no way to check whether every translation that your modified link might lead to is accurate, or that they will remain accurate in the future, so the only safe way to go is to link to the original page.
Furthermore, in this particular case the ref links are attached to quotations. If you translate a quotation, it's no longer a quotation, so the reference has to be to the original language that was quoted.
I think what you want to do would be fine for an inline hyperlink. For instance, if I give a link to more info and there was some way to make it language-adaptive, that would be fine because I'm just including it as a hyperlink, not a reference. Do you see why that's different? – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 07:57, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Did Mojang change Elder Guardians in 1.13?[edit]

Because 1.13 is supposed to be a giant water/ocean update, shouldn't they change the ocean monuments? It's different in an ocean monument because you can swim, but did they change it?–Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 08:07, 31 March 2019 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

They did not. FVbico (talk) 19:11, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Bedrock Edition elder_guardian_ghost[edit]

In Bedrock Edition beta a new unused entity called has been added. It is only summonable via commands. Should we add it to the page? -- 14:00, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

I don't know about that, maybe new unused features in Bedrock 1.13. ImakerB (talk) 21:27, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
