To summon him in survival mode, you need to place a normal Mallorn sapling on a dirt, grass or podzol block in Fangorn and right-click it with Gulduril (this can only be done if you have negative Fangorn alignment), creating a corrupt Mallorn sapling. You can also plant a corrupt sapling, if you manage to get it from somewhere else (you could steal or buy it from another player on the server for example). You don't need negative Fangorn alignment to plant it, neither for the summoning itself. You should do this in or close to Fangorn forest, as you need some Ents nearby for the next step.
Then, some Ents will appear next to it and try to cure the corrupted sapling. Three Ents have to be killed in order for the Mallorn Ent boss to spawn. Keep in mind that the Ents must attempt to heal the sapling in order to count towards the summoning. Upon being summoned, he will say one of the following lines:
- Who dares defile the golden trees of Laurelindórenan? Be you Man, Dwarf, or Morgoth-spawn, your doom has now come!
- Little Orcs! Mischief! The trees cry out for help! And I have heard... hroom hroom, I have heard, and I awake!
- Trees of Tauremornalómë, my brothers and sisters, let us awaken and defend these lands!
- You do a great wickedness against the trees of Laurenandë! I shall crush you like a rock, little one!
In creative mode, you can plant a corrupted sapling and use spawn eggs for the three Ents or the boss can be summoned using the command:
Once you summon it, a purple health bar similar to the Ender Dragon's appears at the top of the screen.
The Mallorn can summon Ents and Huorns, and can also send a whirlwind of leaves towards evil players and NPC's. It can jump considerably high, and heal by "absorbing" the essence of trees, so choose a clearing or chop down some trees before summoning him, to deprive him of this ability.
After emptying its health bar for the first time, it will say one of the following phrases:
- I call upon the blessing of Yavanna! Shelter my bark from axes and blades!
- O Kementári, hear me! Strengthen me against the iron-bite of this little Orc!
- By the grace of Yavanna, your axes cannot fell me, little one!
Kementári is a name for Yavanna, the creator of the Ents.
It will then begin to glow green and gain what seems to be infinite health. At this stage, fire is the only way to hurt it, as it seems immune to any pure physical damage.
As ents are more vulnerable to axes or battleaxes than swords or other weapons, it is recommended to use these. Fire will also be necessary to weaken the boss and do significant damage. Flint and steel, sulphur matches, lava, or if possible, a weapon with fire aspect are recommended. Be careful you do not end up burning the loot you intend to get. While not required, it is recommended that you have some good armour and maybe some healing potions. For the end of the boss fight you might want one or more stacks of Rhûnic Fire-pots.
Mallorn Ents do not destroy blocks, as opposed to Hill Troll Chieftains. This makes them much easier of a boss to kill and to farm. You can set up an arena, trap or farm to kill them. Keep in mind this will need to be in or near Fangorn as you require Ents to kill to summon him.
If you have more than +1000 Fangorn alignment, you'll lose 1000 by killing him, otherwise your positive Fangorn alignment will be set to zero. If you've got negative alignment in advance, you'll lose another 50 points.
