If you know how to summon the Keeper, you also know how to avoid him. It is usually suggested that the Warden is better avoided than summoned, because fighting him requires a lot of skill and if you are unprepared you are sure to die.
The Warden only appears in one place. You will need to find the Ancient City first if you wish to attempt to fight one.
Spawn using commands.
The Warden can only be spawned in Deep Darkness, from naturally spawned Sculk Shriekers. If a Sculk Shrieker is undermined, even with Silk Touch, it won’t be able to summon a Warden.
If you can’t find Deep Darkness, or want to summon a Warden elsewhere, the only way to do so is to use a command. In Minecraft, enter the following command to summon a Guardian: /summon minecraft:warden
Spirit Ashes summon overview
Spirit Ashes summons are a mechanic challenging in Elden Ring. These summons are largely preferred over regular NPC spirits due to the player’s ability to choose a specific one that works best with their build and skill. To summon them all, players must find their spirit ashes and then use a bell that summons spirits at a cost of FP or HP.
Summon the Keeper in Survival Mode
To summon a Keeper, you will need Sculk Shrieker, a Redstone block that you can find in the Deep Dark biome. If you step on the block or trigger a nearby Sculk sensor or Redstone signal, it will create a “warning” layer to alert the Guardian. Upon reaching three alert levels, a Warden will automatically spawn from the ground if there are no other Wardens nearby.
Once spawned, a Warden will randomly wander around and is alerted by a nearby vibration. The more vibrations someone or something produces (mobs, minecarts, bullets), the angrier he gets, and the souls on his chest start to accelerate. When a Warden gets angry enough (or is attacked), he roars and chases after his target. The Warden burrows into the ground and disappears after hearing no vibrations and being “calm” for 60 seconds.
Where to find the Keeper in Minecraft

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.
