The Profaned Soul Artifact is a craftable post-Moon Lord accessory. It summons miniature Profaned Guardians to assist the player, based on different requirements that must be met by the player.

  • When equipped, the Healer Guardian is summoned, which heals the player for 5 health every 5 seconds. Additional Guardians will scale the healing by 5 health for a maximum of 15 health every 5 seconds.
  • When the player has at least 10 minion slots, the Defensive Guardian will be summoned, which rapidly dashes at enemies. Additionally, it boosts movement speed by 10% and damage reduction by 2.5%. If the Offensive Guardian is present, these boosts will double.
  • When the player is wearing the Tarragon armor summoner set or any later sets in progression, the Offensive Guardian will be summoned, which also rapidly dashes at enemies and grants the player 10% summon damage and one extra minion slot. If the Defensive Guardian is present, summon damage will instead be boosted by 15%.

If the player gets hit, they are afflicted with the Burnt Out debuff for 5 seconds, which negates most of the guardians' stat boosts and healing effects for its duration. This does not affect the minion slot provided by the Offensive Guardian, and the Defensive and Offensive Guardians will continue to attack enemies.

The guardians deal a base damage of 75. This is increased to 100 once The Devourer of Gods is defeated, and then to 225 once Jungle Dragon, Yharon is defeated.

Additionally, equipping the Profaned Soul Artifact causes all minions to inflict the Holy Flames debuff for 5 seconds.

Used in


  • Unlike the other Soul Artifacts, this item was not used to summon any of the Future bosses and was instead added in a later version as a Dedicated item.
  • Although Demonshade, Omega Blue and Fearmonger armor all have one helmet type and give universal bonuses, wearing them will still summon the Offensive Guardian.
