If getting to Guardian Silva in Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights wasn’t an indicator of her difficulty, you’ll likely quickly realize she isn’t messing around. She differs from other bosses because you largely need a good tactic and there isn’t a wide margin of error. At my level of 36, she could drop me in six or so hits and her magic attack can be devastating if it hits multiple times at once. There really isn’t an easy way to beat her but this guide should make Guardian Silva a lot more manageable.
How to beat Guardian Silva Guide:
If you lack any of the spirits mentioned here, I strongly suggest stopping everything and finding them.
- Gerrod, the Elder Warrior
- Western Merchant
- Elder Crypt Keeper
- Dark Witch Eleine
Guardian Silva Phase One
Guardian Silva is annoying because she is far more defensive than any of the previous bosses. She will do everything in her power to avoid taking damage and hitting you with her projectiles. Thankfully, this makes her somewhat predictable, as she will either shoot them, indicated by her being in the air, or will swing at you.
For this phase, I strongly suggest waiting for openings and hitting her with Elder Crypt Keeper. This will briefly lock her in place, making it easier to deal damage. This attack also does damage itself, so if you get desperate and don’t want to use Dark Witch Eleine, try to finish her with that.
Outside of that, try to bait her into an attack and then dodge roll behind her to deal damage.
Guardian Silva Phase Two
Similar to Guardian Siegrid, she has a far more traditional phase two where she actually transforms. Her move set is the same as Guardian Siegrid, though she gains an area of effect beam attack. Basically, if you see her float, run.
She doesn’t have a lot of health in this form, so either keep your distance and use Western Merchant and Dark Witch Eleine to chip away at her health or just smack her around with the Gerrod, the Elder Warrior, and Western Merchant.
Both tactics have their own distinct advantages and disadvantages. Dark Witch Eleine is safer if you’re good at anticipating her rush and dodging, whereas Gerrod, the Elder Warrior is more of a rhythm of jumping between her sides.
In the event you still have Elder Crypt Keeper, it isn’t great at slowing her down but does considerable damage given her overall size. Other than that, just repeat what you did during the first fight, just do so faster than the first time.
