Guardian of the Minotaur

The Guardian of the Minotaur is one of the four Guardians of the Void. He must be defeated to obtain the fragments to fight the Shaper. He is located in the T16 Maze of the Minotaur map.

The Guardian of the Minotaur is a slow-attacking, tanky boss made to resemble the melee aspect in Path of Exile. The bossfight is fought in a donut-shaped chamber with electrical barriers that deal damage when crossed. He also summons stone golems to help him with the fight. These can be used for flask charges.

Attacks


Default Attack – The Guardian of the Minotaur has a default attack that does medium-high damage. This attack is inaccurate and easy to evade manually, and with in-game mechanics.this attack will do around 2000-4000 mitigated damage on the standard energy shield endgame character.  This number is probably lower for an armor character.

Cleave Attack – This attack does more damage than the normal default attack. It is swung in an arc with a relatively small area of effect.  This attack is faster than the default attack but still can be predicted. Finally, it does 3000-5000 mitigated damage to the standard energy shield character.

Voll Slam – This attack is called Voll Slam because it is not unlike the slam Voll executes. This attack does the most damage out of any of his attacks. It does 4000-6000 mitigated damage to the standard energy shield character. The slam is easy to predict due to him raising his club in preparation for the attack.

Burrow – The Guardian of the Minotaur can burrow into the ground and pop up at another location. I have not dared to test the damage of his burrow but I suspect it will be relatively high.

Strategy


As the Guardian of the Minotaur is a slow-moving boss, a ranged character is preferable. You want to kite him around and predict his attacks to avoid not getting hit. Block, Evasion, and Dodge will be beneficial in this fight covering up your mistakes. Keep running around and use the stone golems he summons for flask charges. Do not get close to him. Try to not come in contact with the lightning barrier unless necessary.
