Guardian summons several dragon heads that shoot Firebolts at nearby enemies. The level of the firebolts is directly related to your own spell level in the skill, so a higher level firebolt means a more powerful guardian. Thus in order to increase the damage, one should pump firebolt. It eventually became Hydra (Diablo II) and Hydra (Diablo III).

Damage Calculations

Min. Damage: Rec(slvl, 1 + [clvl/2])
Max. Damage: Rec(slvl, 10 + [clvl/2])
Quick Min. Damage: (1 + clvl/2) * (9/8)^slvl
Quick Max. Damage: (10 + clvl/2) * (9/8)^slvl
Duration: 4*slvl/5 + 2*clvl/5 seconds

* The added damage from each character level is then multiplied by the spell level bonus, resulting in a much greater bonus the higher the spell level.
