Pirates are hostile mobs found in various types of Ships generated by Better Dungeons. They resemble Steve with a black beard and they wear full armor of same type (Leather, Chainmail, Iron, Gold or Diamond). They have a primary weapon,which is a sword of the same material as their armor (Wooden sword for Leather armored Pirates,Stone sword for Chain mail armored Pirates), and some have a secondary weapon. The secondary weapon is randomly picked, and can be a Revolver, HookShoot, Shield or other compatible items. They have 20 health points (10 hearts) which is the same as the player. Their swords have a chance to apply Nausea and deal damage based on the type of sword they are carrying. They often drop ingots or gems based on their armor (iron ingots for iron armor, diamonds for diamond armor, etc.), melon slices, and Essences. If they go in water, they will spawn a boat and ride it in water.

Tips Edit

  • Watch out for their melee attacks because they inflict nausea,making it harder to fight.Attacking them from afar with ranged weapons is a good strategy.
  • If they fall in the water,they will use their ships to move faster.If you attack them from underwater,they will not be able to fight back.You can also destroy their ships making them swim,slowing their speed.
  • Kill the Healers and Bannermen first.Healers can deny damage done to other Pirates,and Bannermen will buff their damage,endurance and speed.
