WELL MET, PIGGY GUARD!

Wilba

The Royal Guard is a Mob exclusive to the Don't Starve: Hamlet DLC. It wield a Halberd during the day, and a Torch during the night. It will attack anyone who does something inappropriate. This includes:

- Harvesting Cut Grass, Twigs, Berries, Petals or Rocks from the farms around the Pig Villages (Every character excluding Wilba)
- Burning or destroying the aforementioned items (Willow's insanity fires count, too)
- Attacking pigs in town / Royal Guards themselves
- Destroying town structures

Royal Guards will extinguish any fire they spot, as Campfires or Fire Pits, either in the night or the day. Other Light sources as Torch, Lantern or Cork Candle Hat will remain untouched.

Royal Guards can be recruited to assist the player by giving them a Security Contract.

Brain Behavior

If the player has stolen anything, Royal Guards that spotted them will remember and attack the player on sight everytime they'll see them again. However, those that remember the player's misdeeds can be bribed off for 10 Oincs. If the player attacked a Pig Villager, all Royal Guards around will remember it and attack them on sight. If the player attacked a Royal Guard, all Royal Guards around will aggro the player, but only the one attacked will remember.

Killing the Royal Guards and waiting for new ones to spawn in will undo any mistakes made, since the new Guards are completely new Pigs, so they won't know of the misbehavior.

Prototype Tips

  • Since a torch deals less damage than a Halberd (and doesn't set the player on fire), it's best to fight Royal Guards at dusk, or night, for an easier fight.
  • Before harvesting the farms, it is best to kill all the Royal Guards protecting them, as you will be free to collect what you want without being interrupted. Plus, once the new guards will spawn, they won't remember your misdeeds.
  • Caution must be taken when fighting mobs at dusk/night near Royal Guards: they will attack hostile mobs on sight, and even if their Torches don't set the player on fire, they do set fire to the mobs attacked. This might cause massive damage, especially to the farms.
  • Both of the Royal Guards weapons are actual items in their inventory, meaning that attacks which drop items (such as Grasping Vines or Frogs) will cause them to drop their unequipped weapon. This will prevent them from switching weapons at different times of day.
  • Fighting strategy : get manually as close as you can to the Royal Guard. Land only one hit on it. Kite its attack by moving just barely (otherwise it will have time to flee). Land just one hit again. Repeat.

Placeholder Trivia

  • The Royal Guard outfit may have been inspired by the Swiss Guard.
  • The Royal Guards appear to be wearing Fancy Helmets.
