Ash Guardians are atronach-like ash creatures found in various locations throughout Solstheim. They resemble the Storm Atronach except they are encased in stone rather than lightning. They can be summoned and will attack unless they feed on heart stones. They are most often found with magic users or the similar Ash Spawn.
Ash guardians can be conjured once you have completed the quest From the Ashes. The Ash Guardian never occupies a conjuration slot; you can still have one more summon (or two more, if you have the Twin Souls perk) in addition to the Ash Guardian. Moreover, only one Ash Guardian can exist at any given time; summoning a second one will make the existing one vanish. This is true whether you summon it with or without a heart stone, or one guardian with a stone and another without a stone.
- Ash guardians will sometimes not fight for you even though they consume a heart stone when summoned. They will instead just sit in one spot until attacked.
- Ash guardians will inflict no fire damage with their flame explosion attack.
