How to find the Warden
The Warden can be found lurking somewhere in the Ancient Cities found in the new Deep Dark biome. While this biome is terrifying in its own right, having The Warden around makes it even scarier. Since The Warden is blind, he cannot see you directly. Instead, he locates you by focusing on your vibe and smell. Keep in mind that he can find you through blocks, so don’t think you can hide behind a wall to avoid him.
An easy way to locate the Warden is to make as much noise as possible when he enters the Ancient Cities. However, this way he will know where you are and will attack you on sight. The ideal way is to sneak around by crouching and looking for it in the area. Although he has the same speed as the player character, he can get faster if you annoy him by making noise.
Where to find Guardians in Minecraft
Before you can kill a Grand Warden, you must first know where you can find them. Guardians only spawn in Deep Dark Caves which are a new addition to Minecraft Caves and Cliffs. Deep Dark is the lowest cave type in the game sitting just above bedrock. This is the perfect place for Wardens to hide because they hide in the shadows and sneak up on players. There is also a Guardian Hut also located in Deep Dark which is meant to be where Guardians spawn.
Now that you know where to find the Keepers, you’ll need to know how to kill them as you explore the Underdark. This is where it gets tricky because you wouldn’t want to attempt to kill a Warden, let alone a Grand Warden. The reason is that Guardians are the strongest mobs in the game. Guardians are taller than iron golems and can kill you in two hits if you’re wearing full netherite armor. Guardians have been reported to get faster when you attack them, so the best tactic with Guardians is to avoid them and run away.

The Guardian can only be found within the Deep Dark biome located anywhere below level y zero. Guardians don’t just roam the biome, but are instead summoned by noisy activity within the region.
Don’t make noise
By now, most gamers should know that they should keep quiet when dealing with the guardian in Minecraft 1.19 . Since he is completely blind, the one thing the Guardian is extremely good at is hearing sound. Because even if the guardian is blind, he can navigate towards the player as soon as he feels the slightest movement.
The guardian’s rage level also increases every time he hears the player. So for this reason, players need to be in a crouch or sneak position most of the time to avoid making any noises that might attract the guardian. Any action, including eating foods, mining rocks, putting on and taking off items, sprinting, and more, can alert the Guardian to your location, so be careful.
