A tower guard is a heavily-armored tower keeper royal guard variant that can be found within the cloudy climb seasonal adventure of Minecraft Dungeons.

Appearance[]

Tower guards are illagers similar in appearance to royal guards with the difference of them being exclusive to the tower and having unique armor and weapons. Firstly, they wear a unique hood with yellow outlines in the back, they also wear red underclothing under their armor, and lastly, they wear capes and don a unique shield. The same pattern on their shield is seen on their capes. Their eyes are also seen glowing a bright blue.

Spawning[]

Behavior[]

Tower guards have strength that is equivalent of the Arch-Illager’s royal guards, capable of overwhelming the hero with both damage and numbers, they also like to circle the hero blocking them.

Tower guards are usually protected by their heavy armor, with their shield and glaive. The shield can deflect all ranged attacks unlike shields of royal guards which can be broken with ranged attacks, so it must be destroyed first, so the hero can damage it. Tower guards are slower than most mobs, but extremely strong, capable of dealing heavy damage to the hero. Their health pool is larger than the royal guards and they do more melee damage. They still can be stunned by normal attacks.

They have three behaviors:

Charge attack

Tower guards are capable of charging at the hero if they are within range.

Basic attack

Tower guards are capable of swinging their glaive at the hero, dealing heavy damage.

Target lock

Tower guards are capable of locking onto heroes that run fifteen blocks away from them, chasing them.
