God damn Treemen!
Is this a new enemy? Or is it because I stopped digging up the stumps?
I had one kill me in my camp that I surrounded by trees in the last update. I planted a ring of trees right on the outskirts of my fire, a tree man just placed himself there, cheeky.
Seems like they just hang out in places with a lot of trees.
@Cheesebob see it?
@InsidiousBliss Yep, I tried that too. Everything caught on fire. Didn't work out well.
It ended up sucking for me really badly because there were TWO of these things around my base. Eventually, I died. I couldn't even kill a single one.
my first encounter was when i was ranging out reeeaaally far from by base and happened up on a Pig Village with the fatass Pig King, i gave him a few meats for gold and started chopping some trees for night.
Then one of these guys popped out and started to attack me, but all the pigs came running to help and distracted the Treegaurd. Things didn't go well, all the piggies died and dropped lots of meat...
..which i then fed to the pig king to get more GOLD lol cannibalism
@Ariketh: The treeguards spawn from you cutting trees. They are also more likely to spawn at night. Which was oh so fun having that thing chase me around my camp fire ><. Apparently planting pine cones may cause them to lose aggro and replant themselves.
I had this happen to me as well. The first time it killed me. The second time I actually saw one of my trees near my campfire turn into it then I had to kite it around hitting it and eating to kill it. They take a ton of hits to kill but they are also very slow.
Treeguards are ridiculously easy to fight against with the logsuit equipped. They have extremely low hitting rates so they can't get many hits off especially when you keep attacking which stuns it momentarily. They're nothing like those fucking tentacles that pop out of the swamps. Holy shit, every character I play as has died fighting them. They don't get stunned and have extremely high hitting rates. They seem to be able to attack faster than their animation allows them to and every hit knocks 20% of logsuit armor.
When you reach the Pig King you can bribe his pigs with meat so they fight for you. They're pretty good in swarms, usually one takes all the beating while the rest pile on the enemy. Though when you're fighting monsters they have a tendency to eat the monster meat that gets dropped and become monsters themselves. The first time I saw that I panicked and ran all the way to my base camp in the first island.
