A Guardian Wraith is a low level guardian left by the Eridians to protect an artifact hidden in the Dahl Headlands. They are encountered when the mission, Ghosts of the Vault is accepted from Lucky's Bounty Board.



Guardian wraiths levitate and have extremely powerful shields. Their style of combat is to race in to melee range of a target and start slashing with energy blades that extend from their arms.

Shock damage attacks are recommended for use against a guardian wraith. Once their shields are down their extremely low health makes them rather easy to kill. Mordecai's Trespass skill at rank 5 can shorten combat since it ignores any shields but the character needs to be at least level 25 with all skill points in the sniper class tree.


  • Two wraiths along with a guardian spectre spawn to protect the Eridian Artifact.
  • Mordecai's Trespass skill can significantly shorten combat with any sort of guardian, as it can bypass their incredibly powerful shields.
