Boars are a quite common sight in forests, and may be tamed to become domesticated pigs. Boars also stand out as being one of the tougher creatures due to their aggressive nature and the likelihood of encountering them on forest terrain. Fortunately, boars are slower than most other animals as their fastest movement speed is somewhat slower than a player's running speed, making it possible to outrun them given enough time and stamina.

Boars have a decent chance to execute you when they KO you.

Boars have a natural armor that absorbs all damage below 15. This armor cannot be broken.



Good chance to attack you if you get too close. Fortunately it is well known that boars are one of the few animals which run slower than a Hearthling's third speed. (Except in very rare cases where they may run fast enough to require you to sprint.) Use this to your advantage if you need to flee from them or when trying to hunt them. If they begin to run away from you, you can punch them from behind for maximum damage, even with no red bar. For an easy kill against boars, sling rocks at them from a boat, and then when they start to run you can hop out and chase them down.
