Recommended Posts

hello I was just playing today, a treeguard appeared and it killed me I couldnt do anything, I had log armor on, I tried cutting it down like a normal tree as stupid as that may have been, I tried killing it with a spear, I lit it on fire, I even ran away all day seeing if it would go away eventually though it killed me at night time because i couldnt refuel my fire...what is a good way to survive when you come against one of them

I just encountered my first one today. It may not have been the fasted way but I ended up killing it by starting a fire and then running in circles around the camp fire (so the tree pretty much stayed on top). Everyone once and a while I would lead the tree away to refuel it. For the big one I think it took around 6 times of catching on fire to kill him.

Hello there and welcome to the forums!

There are 2 ways of killing a treeguard. U can light them on fire using a torch (select the torch as if u were going to drop it, but instead of dropping it, click on the treeguard) or u can use the unprotected campfire. This needs a little additional fuel tho so it actually sets the treeguard ablaze when he walks over it.

The second way to kill him is kiting. Hit and run tactics. If u look at his attacks, he attacks rather slowly, there is alot of time between attacks. Try to bait an attack, but run out of range while hes swinging so he misses and his attack will be on cooldown. Then run in afterwards and hit him a few times. Then run away again b4 he hits u. Do not hit him when his attack is not on cooldown, he hits very hard. I hope this helps.

I just had the misfortune of putting my "base camp" right next to a pair of the bastards. Let's just say I spent about 3-4 minutes bashing at them (baiting, hitting them 3-4 times, then repeating) before I finally slipped up and lost everything.

I love this game, but God is it deflating when you see all those precious research points drop when you die.

(EDIT: Grammar/spelling errors)
