The guard will spawn upon digging at the correct coordinates, and must be defeated in order to advance in the treasure trail. Like the aviansies found in the God Wars Dungeon, the guard is flying too high to be attacked using melee, and must instead be defeated by means of ranged, magic or a salamander. Since the guard only uses ranged attacks, Protect from Missiles will circumvent all damage.
After defeating the guard, the player must dig at the same spot again, and will be allowed to do so unhindered.

- There is currently a glitch where the guard's death cry is heard twice. The second cry happens when the drop appears, as the drop seems to have a small delay.
