Most of the trees are just trees, of course; but many are half awake... When that happens to a tree, you will find that some have bad hearts. Nothing to do with their wood: I do not mean that.

Huorns are passive (until angered) mobs that spawn in Fangorn forest. They appear as regular oak, birch, or beech trees until attacked or disturbed, then angry faces appear on them and they come to life. Like Ents, these are the type of trees that don't 'just bark'.

There are two variants, the regular Huorn and the Dark Huorn (see section below). Both have 60 (30 x 2hearts) health. Upon death, both variants will drop logs of their tree type and/or sticks.

Combat Edit

Huorns are as fast as a sprinting player, and are not hurt very much by swords or any other weapons. Fire and axes are the best way to defend yourself, as any other weapon will only deal a third of its normal damage, and they are immune to poison.

Killing a regular Huorn will lower your Fangorn alignment, however. It earns you the achievement "Lumberjack".

Both types of Huorns reach more than 2 blocks far, when attacking you. So it's no use to hide below a regular oak/birch tree, as their leaves reach out only 2 blocks (which was possible in older mod versions). You've got to extend the leaves one block further out, or design some kind of platform under which to seek shelter when hunting Huorns systematically. They hit quite hard, so get yourself a decent armour before.

Dark Huorns Edit

Dark Huorns spawn in the Old Forest and are hostile to all players. They will attack you if you try to cut down a tree in the Old Forest, regardless of one's alignment. They may also attack if you get too close to them.

Like the regular Huorn, it is best to combat this foe with fire or axes.

Killing a Dark Huorn will give you the achievement "Forester's Nightmare" as well as alignment with Hobbits and Rangers of the North. It's the only way to gain positive Hobbit alignment besides of mini-quests and performing hobbit marriages. Killing Dark Huorns does not lower your Fangorn alignment.

Hiring Huorns Edit

As of Public Beta 19, hired Huorns can be created. For that you need golden Ent draught and at least +500 Fangorn alignment. Just take the golden Ent draught in one hand and right-click a sapling (oak, birch or beech). Make sure there is enough space above the sapling to actually spawn the Huorn. Also, the sapling does not get used up in the process.

When a Huorn is hired, it has much of the same mechanics as other hire-able units. They can be set to guard mode or dismissed, and a green bar above their head shows their health. They do, however, have a special method of being summoned. All the player needs to do is to drink the golden Ent draught.

Upon hiring a Huorn, the player earns the achievement "From Little Acorns"

Note that players with Fangorn alignment under +500 can't hire Huorns.

Advantages Edit

  • High health
  • High resistance
  • Long attack reach

Disadvantages Edit

  • Weakness to axes
  • Expensive

TriviaEdit

  • Huorns are guarded and looked after by the Ents (hence their nickname 'the Herdsmen of the trees') that spawn in Fangorn forest.
  • They are the strongest units that a good player can hire; the fact that they have a 30% damage reduction to all weapons save axes and their great speed make them great bodyguards. Their cost and alignment that is needed to hire them balance this mob out though.
  • They are one of the few mobs that can survive a warg bombardier
