    They should also be tamablee in some way to use them as a food source.

    The babies do the lowest damage of any hostile mob, and they also run away after being attacked, so they aren't an issue. As for the adults, they can be repelled using warped fungi, although you do have to place it on nylium(doesn't matter which, but it can't be placed on normal netherrack).

    Currently a shield works just fine in 1v1, but multiple hoglins at once still pose a problem. Personally, I think you should be able to repel hoglins by simply holding the fungi in your hand/offhand, but it might make it too easy to deal with them.

    I believe so too. I have just spawned in a crimson forest, and it's nearly unplayable. I was chased by about 30 hoglins at once (as I was running from about 5 more and more agrro-ed on me), and I only managed to get out by doing a sort of divide and conquer strategy: which took about 45 minutes. Also, when holding a shield, hoglins can still fling you in the air which does a lot of damage without feather falling. Personally, I think they should only attack in groups of 2 or less. In larger groups, they would feel more safe and wouldn't attack. I think seeing as they have the health of endermen, take little to no knock-back, and can run very quick: I believe that they should be neutral in larger groups. Separating them from endermen but not making them overpowered. I think hoglins should also lose a lot slower than the player. If the idea is that they are big and bulky, and as a result take little knock-back and have a lot of health: I think they should also be a lot slower to keep in line with this

    I agree. I spawned in a Crimson Forest and I can't go anywhere without getting cornered by a bunch of hoglins. Even with the piglins that spawn and help kill them, there's only so much I can do against a bunch of tanks. I have a set of iron armor (gold boots) and a shield. They even have a really long reach so it makes it even more difficult to hit them with my iron axe. And then it still takes 4-5 hits with that to kill them with that. A bow would most likely work best, but they have so much health and it's too difficult to take them down without them demolishing you.
