The King of the Merms appears after feeding a Merm on the Royal Tapestry. He has 1000 Health and regenerates 2 health per second. He cannot attack or move but he spawns up to 4 Loyal Merm Guards when attacked, they disappear when the attacker is killed or out of range. When killed they regenerate after 1 day.
He has 200 Hunger and starves in four days. When his hunger is at zero his health depletes in 2 days.
As long as the King of the Merms is alive, all Merms receive a stat boost. Wurt players change stats to 250 , 250 and 200 corresponding of a bonus of +100 Health, +50 Hunger and +50 Sanity. Normal Merms gain +60 health and +10 damage. Loyal Merm Guards gain +460 Health and +30 damage.
When the King of the Merms is alive Merms and Loyal Merm Guards are neutral to all creatures and players.
Wurt or a player wearing a Clever Disguise can offer Freshwater Fish, Live Eel or Ocean Fishes to the King of the Merms in exchange for various resources. The table below lists the possible gifts. Some gifts come with 2 to 4 extra fillers including Seeds (67%), Kelp Fronds (16%) or Rot (16%).
