For the Guardian of the Bay, she can be found just to the northwest of the central Spire. If you’re having trouble, just look for the area near the head of the bay that looks like Fall hit it a bit early.

Once your up there, simply located the structure, and then find the Guardian, who should be patrolling around the base of the mound. Be careful though! As she can and will come after you to try and get you before you get her.
