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. They do not occupy a conjuration slot and can be summoned in addition to other conjured allies.
- 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.
