Dragon Age 2 Legacy Defeating the Second Guardian

In Dragon Age 2 Legacy, Hawke and party become trapped in Corypheus' prison, and must descend into the lower levels and break each seal in each level to become free. Each seal is guarded by a guardian. The Second Seal and Second Guardian is a nightmare to be broken, especially for the Hard or Nightmare levels. This is the only way to go down from Corypheus Prison - Farele Floor.

It looks seemingly easy to begin with, with only one demonic guardian appearing to attack Hawke and party. Unfortunately, this seemingly easy fight becomes a nightmare when the 2nd guardian splits into three guardians. One would think that the lesser guardians will disappear after some time. Well, they do, and then the second guardian teleports and splits into three guardians again. To survive this fight, one must look at various tactics.

Dragon Age 2 Legacy Tactics for Defeating the Second Guardian

To defeat the second guardian, the following tactics may be used. One is to prevent the second guardian from splitting into its various forms. To do this, hit the second guardian with petrify and prevent the guardian from moving. One could also use cold spells. Use fighers and single attack spells (which should do massive damage at high levels) to attack the second guardian relentlessly. One could use Hex of Torment to increase the damage on the second guardian. Should the second guardian teleport away and split, use the following tactics

The second set of tactics is pretty easy to follow and can be used when the second guardian splits into three guardians. Well, just use the first set of tactics and ignore the two lesser guardians, concentrating firepower and melee attacks on the greater and original guardian only. To do this, one of the mages may have to become a healer or go into spirit healing mode, as the damage inflicted by the three guardians on the characters will be higher combined. One may have to resort to using health potions and mana potions, which are pretty limited in the Corypheus Prison Levels.

The player may have to repeat this many times. Eventually the second guardian will be defeated. The rewards may be interpreted in the picture below.
