Automaton Guardians are melee-based opponents created by the Cres, a Guardian of Guthix, to protect Guthix's chamber. They can be found in the central room of Guthix's lair after the completion of The World Wakes, The Firemaker's Curse, the Ritual of the Mahjarrat, The Chosen Commander, Branches of Darkmeyer, and The Void Stares Back. They require 67 Slayer to be harmed and are known for their various mid-priced stackable drops and their very rare glove drop.

Currently, the guardians are the least resource intensive variant of Automaton due to lack of damage taken. Torment is highly recommended; due to the approximately 30% increase in profit/kills exceeding the cost of prayer dosage.

CombatEdit

Players should be aware of the monster's special attack, which does a pulsing area of effect damage around the automation at regular intervals, but roots the monster in place (note it can still perform regular auto attacks while the special is active). This can quickly do 1000+ damage if multiple pulses contact with the player.

StrategyEdit

Safe spot automaton

An example of a safe spot.

To fight the Guardians, level 80 weaponry or better is strongly recommended; any lower will sharply cut profits. Torment and its equivalent curses, Anguish and Turmoil, significantly increase damage when fighting this monster, as the monster has high combat stats in all areas (Torment provides the correct bonus against its weakness).

Safe spotting the monster west or east of the middle area (trapping them by the walls dividing of each boss NPC during the quest) is the easiest approach, as the player takes no damage (Void Knight equipment is recommended to take advantage of this). Targeting the monsters then using Impact, Asphyxiate, or a binding spell, such as Ice Barrage, initially will root them in place for a period of time allowing the player to inflict large amounts of damage before they can approach. Impact will be ready again to bind them by the time the effect wears off effectively allowing safe spotting from anywhere in the room for those comfortable with advance combat mechanics.

Other conveniences include: the quest reward Sixth-Age circuit, providing a quick teleport back to the area and Solomon's General Store pet variants, which automatically loots the plethora of stacking objects.
