Recently at Minecraft live, the cave update was announced, along with a new mob, the warden. Although the warden is very powerful alone, what’s a warden without guardsmen?
Guardsmen are similar to the warden in many ways. They are blind, and use sculk growths on the side of their head to hear vibrations, like the warden. They also have long, spindly arms. Like wardens, they spawn in the deepest caves of the overworld. The key difference between them is strength. Whereas the warden has overwhelming health and damage, the guardsmen are a lot weaker. Guardsmen have around 25 hitpoints of health, and deal 5 hitpoints per hit in normal difficulty. Guardsmen are also smaller than wardens, only being around 2 blocks tall and 1 block wide. This means that you cannot hide from them in small gaps. They spawn in groups of 2-4. If they can, they will attempt to follow wardens. It would be cool if they could communicate with each other and wardens with their sculk growths, so they don’t accidentally attack each other.
