Despite being a very endgame dungeon, the stronghold lacks danger. I've created these mob ideas in an attempt to fix this problem. I hope you like them!
Starting off with...
[Models and textures by me!]
These little guys are essentially remakes of the peepers from my other suggestion.
Watchers are small drones that follow a set path through the stronghold. If one spots you, it'll alert the goliaths using some form of alarm-based sound. They'll also do this when there are blocks that stop them from following their set paths. Luckily, they constantly emit a humming sound, so you can tell when one is close by, and they can only see anything that's in front of them.
They can't be harmed unless you hit the energy core on their backs, in which they die in one hit.
If there are no goliaths nearby, the watcher will fight you itself. It attacks using psychic waves that do minor damage, but give the player extreme nausea, disorientating them.
Upon death, watchers drop one eye of ender.
[Models also done by me!]
Goliaths are completely harmless.
That is, until you're spotted by a watcher.
When a watcher spots you, any nearby goliath becomes active, and will rush to your location!
Goliaths are like iron golems, but cranked up to the max. They can do immense damage if you aren't well equipped. It mainly attacks using its massive arms, but can also charge up and fire beams out of its eye if you're too far away. It will break any block that prevents it from getting to you, so blocking them in isn't an option.
However, these near-unstoppable forces have one weakness.
If you shoot a goliath in the eye, it will become stunned for a few seconds. After it stops being stunned, it will continue to chase you, but it's eye will be closed for a few seconds, preventing you from stunning it again immediately.
Goliaths that see you when they are tasked with breaking blocks in a watcher's path will not attack you, as destroying you isn't their objective at that time.
On death, the goliath drops an eye of ender and a goliath core.
The Goliath Core
Goliath cores are a material used for a special new weapon...
Eye of the Protector
The eye of the protector is a new ranged weapon with one big thing that separates it from the others...
...it can shoot lasers.
This weapon of mass destruction can fire a beam similar to that of the goliath's beam, doing massive damage. The beams can also pierce through five mobs before stopping. However, there's a 10 second cooldown between shots. It doesn't require ammo, but loses durability quickly. This weapon can be fully repaired with one goliath core at an anvil.
I hope you liked my ideas!
