    I have mixed reactions to this idea.

    First of all, I completely agree that the Strongholds could use a more powerful and thematically relevant mob. So I'm very glad you've brought this up for discussion.

    My main concern is the motionless-until-provoked behavior, simply because players could find all the sentries, leaving them alone at first; then, once they have all been found, the player could just wall them all off and fight them one by one. Piece of cake.

    The hitbox idea is neat. The sword/shield dual abilities is fantastic and a great way to further integrate the shields into the game. Love it.

    The eye of ender drop is an interesting idea and I can definitely see why you chose it, because it is very relevant to the whole point of the structure. However, it would also mean that the End would no longer be gated behind the Nether. You may recall that the Eye of Ender trades for clerics were switched to Ender Pearl trades precisely for this reason. Sadly, I think you will have to look for another interesting drop. I'll let you know if an idea comes to me.

    Overall: your idea could use some adjustments, but I'm glad you posted it.

    @MacchuPicchu96 yeah I actually neglected the Eye of Ender crafting for a moment, and I totally agree.  Though, in most cases, players would have to craft an Eye of Ender or two anyways to find the stronghold.  Hmm...

    Hmmm indeed :D

    Like I said, it's the behavior that's most concerning here. I suppose an occasional Eye of Ender drop wouldn't be too overpowered given your point.

    I also thought the mob could drop something that connects to another idea I posted involving simple stone mob statues.  The item could be a "stone heart" which, when combined with some stone blocks and a certain mob head, will craft a type of mob statue for the player.  This mob is already kind of a "statuish" mob.  But since it would make more sense that one could craft a statue out of regular stone and a mob head for specification...

    I think that this is a truly great idea because strongholds aren't easy to get to and the mobs found there are so basic ''besides the silverfish'' so Sentries would be a great addition to minecrafts strongholds.

    Plus I also think that there should be an End variant of this mob except its made of endstone bricks and it guards the obsidian pillars during the boss fight. Same weapons same drops but you'd have to deal with these guys before you blow up those end crystals.

    @WalnutTooth5237 glad you like the idea, but I don't know about an End variant...those Enderman are numerous and scary enough on that island.

    I died several times trying to get to the portal.  The stronghold is hard enough.

    I think that this mob would also be cool in the End except it guards the obsidian pillars and its texture is made like the endstone bricks instead of stone bricks

    This mob is like a trial for the player skills before getting to The End. Nice!
