Thread: Guardian site guide?

    Guardian site guide?

    I know this game is really all about going and finding things and trying it all out for yourself, but this Guardian site I'm at is right royally confusing me. The fact that I don't know what type it is or what it's meant to give me probably isn't helping!

    So far I've gathered there are around 6 different types and they give different data. Also you have to drive around, some stuff pops up and some stuff shoots you, then you have to collect 2 things and fly off somewhere else and do another thing to get a thing.

    Where do the pylons fit into this bizarre activity? I've found 6, I light them all up well within the timer, but nothing happens, the data thingy doesn't do anything and I still can't scan it.

    And, if there a one stop guide for learning what to do at these places? I've found various sites, only by searching for the system name, but they all give bits of information, not everything I need.

    Any help and/or direction to a decent site would be very appreciated.

    And I should have come with a bigger ship!

    Many thanks.

    Oh, and when I've collected the power cells and skimmer parts and such, where do they go? I can't see them in the Materials or data.....

    Youtube has several good videos on this, e.g.:

    Search for "elite dangerous guardian structure guide"

    No - take a small ship - preferably one with utility mounts on the top, in which you can put point defence.

    They're hiding in there somewhere - possibly prefixed with Guardian?

    Read the youtube comments for some good tips.

    Well, this is the specific page on the Canonn site https://canonn.science/codex/guardia...an%20structure - has most stuff you talk about.

    I looked around the canonn site, some great maps, but I couldn't find any way to search for a system, or set a reference point. Like a mall of a shopping centre without the 'You are here' sticker. maybe I missed it, but very difficult to use as a data reference without any bearings.

    Thanks folks, I honestly didn't think of looking at the tube, I was very tired!

    Ok, so I'm having a good look atound all the information, what I can't find anywhere is a list/map of locations of the different tech. If you want weapons go here, if you want the fsd go here. The youtube for "How to get the G SFD..." specifies a system that isn't listed in Canonn as an active site, so I'm not sure I want to go there.

    There must be a simple list somewhere, I just can't find it.

    Thanks for the info so far though, very helpful.

    The Canonn page I linked has a list of weapon / module sites. so not sure why you can't find it. If another web page lists another guardian site then why not try it as well? They're not far apart.
