然而攻击地牢守卫者的玩家, 不管武器或装备如何( 除了 霜冻 物品), 都只会造成1点伤害, 或2点暴击伤害. 这意味着地牢守卫者 总是/ 经常受到平均1.04的伤害.
- 从地牢守卫者的一次攻击中存活下来的唯一方法(不包括 暗影躲避技能) 是装备最高防御力: 甲虫盔甲，选择增加防御的饰品以到达 91防御力 以及 45%伤害免疫. 但即使是你这样做了，也承受不住它的第二次攻击.
- 地牢守卫者拥有9999生命值, 所以玩家或许需要打它9999下才会死亡（暴击为2点攻击力，约打5000下）
- 在 移动版中 , 这个debuff会让你每次攻击造成约32伤害，所以这或许是最有效的攻击方式. 再配合 流血的debuff可以更快完成击杀。
- 你可以在它攻击你之前可以依靠具有瞬间传送的物品来逃离愤怒的地牢守卫的追杀, 比如 手机, 冰镜, 或者 魔镜.
- 杀死骷髅守卫并非是不可能的, 尽管它会因为它荒谬的高防御而受到数千次打击（因为它的累积可以很容易地以每秒数百次的速度消耗他的健康，所以建议使用幻影弓和夜明箭）。再加上你通常需要同时与多个守护者对抗，除非你仔细准备，否则胜利是极不可能的。
- High speed and critical chance are crucial for fighting the Dungeon Guardian, as every hit will do 1 damage, and every critical hit will do 2 damage.
- Dungeon Guardians will adhere to the same spawn limits as any other enemy: if there are too many monsters on-screen at once, they will not spawn.
- A good tactic is to acquire full Titanium armor, allowing you to occasionally dodge otherwise lethal hits.
- The player can outrun the Dungeon Guardian with the Unicorn Mount. The Unicorn Mount's speed reaches 61 mph, faster than the Dungeon Guardian, so the player will only need to stop to allow the Dungeon Guardian to catch up.
- Use of a Life Drain is particularly effective against the Dungeon Guardian, as the Life Drain can deal 5 damage a tick.
- Another good way to kill the Dungeon Guardian is to lure it into a circle of ropes, keep going around the ropes. Then, throw a boomerang in the middle. The Dungeon Guardian will stay in the middle while taking damage from the boomerang.
- However, the Guardian's speed will almost always overtake the player. This strategy is best done with a circular HOIK.
- In the 移动版 the Chlorophyte Shotbow or Tsunami combined with Heart Arrow while wearing full Frost Armor (as the Dungeon Guardian is not immune to Frostburn debuff) can be a good way to defeat the Dungeon Guardian.
- One of the most general strategies is to dig a hole straight down through the dungeon, use a pair of wings with increased vertical speed (Fishron, Stardust, Solar) and Cosmic Car Key. Go down through the hole, and when the Guardian appears, quickly fly up through the hole and mount. From there you can damage it however you want, without ever being touched.
- In Expert mode, Dungeon Guardians will have double the health and deal double the damage. Due to this, it is recommended to try and defeat the Dungeon Guardian on a normal world to save time, money (All enemies take money from the ground) and further troubles.
- On the 移动版 the Dungeon Guardian can be killed very easily with Fishron Wings, Frost Armor, and any Ranged weapon. This is because Frostburn will do 32 damage every time the damage ticks. This can kill it in as few as 20 shots.
- On the 电脑版、 主机版、和 移动版, using the Cosmic Car Key is a good tactic, as you can fly across the whole world without ever being touched until you reach the edge. There, you can loop back the other direction.
- Any Gun, an Endless Musket Pouch, and a Cosmic Car Key can get the job done. A Rod of Discord would be helpful if you happen to have one lying around.
- On 移动版, if somehow you can get close to the Dungeon Guardian without getting hit, then a Tizona can be a great choice, with Frost armor of course. The Bleeding and Frostburn debuffs will stack and do 66 damage per tick, killing the Dungeon Guardian in seconds.
- Originally, actual Skeletron Heads were used to guard the Dungeon. Killing all Skeletron Heads would count as defeating Skeletron, so the Dungeon Guardian was created to repair this unintentional behavior.
- Despite being initially intended to be unbeatable, it is not invulnerable like Spike Balls, Blazing Wheels, and True Eyes of Cthulhu are.
- It has no corpse on the 电脑版、 主机版、 前代主机版、和 移动版, but on the , the remains of Skeletron's hands will appear upon its death. 版
- Its head spins clockwise when the player is going left and counterclockwise when going right.
- 电脑版 18.104.22.168：
- The speed of Dungeon Guardians and any other mobiles with the Dungeon Guardian Al (Skeletron and Skeletron Prime during the day) has been buffed to move faster when flying in clear air.
- If the Dungeon Guardian is going through blocks then its speed slows down.
- When trying to outrun it with asphalt blocks, the Dungeon Guardian will chase you down and keep a certain distance near the player until you stop or if it goes through blocks
- 电脑版 1.2.3：
- The AI-reset problem has now been fixed, causing Turtle armor to no longer deal massive damage. The damage is now reduced to 1, like all other attacks.
- Defense raised from 9000 to 9999.
- 电脑版 22.214.171.124：Damage reduced from 9000 to 1000, to prevent Turtle armor from dealing too much damage, however, the exploit still works due to the Dungeon Guardian's AI resetting the damage (see [Discussion of this exploit] for details).
- 1.0.5 Patchlog: “Entering the dungeon before defeating Skeletron now spawns a new NPC instead of Skeletron’s head. This should fix several issues with that event.”
