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 damages. Loyal Merm Guards gain +460 Health, +30 damages and ×1.11 speed.
