The specific instructions are: Render of Mountaineer place their pick into the ground to not be blown away by strong wind.
Mountaineer Pick (unobtainable)
The Mountaineer is an illager who lives in mountainous areas. It is often seen wearing a brown hood with additional white face covering, brown-and-white colored sleeves and pants, brown boots and gloves, and a blue belt or sash around its chest. They always hold a Mountaineer Pick in which they use for attacks. They also possess blue eyes like a Vindicator and like them, they also have armored variants.
Mountaineers behave like normal vindicators but are much stronger along with their armored variants, running up to the player and attacking them via melee, with their picks. When in contact with wind, they place their pick into the ground to not be blown away.
