But can money buy you naps, banker man?


The Banker is a Pig Trader Mob exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. He wears a black suit and buys most kinds of gems for Oincs. There is no limit to the amount trades done in a day. He can be found in the Swinesbury and Palace City.

Brain.png Behavior[]

One Banker may spawn from a Town House, and will wander randomly around their house and eat any edible items left on the ground, including Pig Skin. Every so often they will drop one Manure where they are standing, and if the player picks up that manure the Banker will approach them and give them one Oinc, along with an accompanying Quote.

Whenever there is a hostile mob nearby, or a player targets them or another Pig Trader or Royal Guard near them, they will enter a panicked state. They will begin to move around semi-randomly in a direction away from the aggressor.

They will attempt to return to their house in the evening, and if they cannot reach their house or their house is destroyed they will seek the nearest light source and stand next to it until night, when they will sleep on the ground.
