Bears are generally one of the toughest animals you will see in the Hearthlands. They are big, bulky, strong, and faster than they look. They can be seen occasionally wandering in forests.

Bears are rather aggressive and are likely attack you if you get too close. They can easily take down a weaker Hearthling in a few swipes of their mighty claws, so you should give them a wide berth. They won't attack other creatures.

Bears have a decent chance to execute you if they KO you.

The pelt, teeth and meat have various unique recipes like the Bear Cape, Bear Tooth Talisman and multiple sausages.



They will attack you if you get close. Very strong with high damage, they can easily kill you if you aren't fit for the task.

They are very fast and can only be barely outran by sprinting. If you are attacked by one you should look for a grassland or another area where you can sprint. Try to make it to a river or body of water, as they cannot swim. If you are in the middle of a forest there is little to be done.

After receiving roughly 500 damage, bears will briefly flee from you, and then enter a rage mode. In this rage mode, the bear's eyes will light up with fire and the ferocity of the bear will be unmatched.
