  • Barrow-wights are quite strong and scary in the mod already, but I feel they are still weak considering all their scaryness. Also, I don't think barrow-downs should be an easy source of of valuables, but rather a place most people want to avoid.

    Cold be hand...

    Barrow-wights should get a new ability to give slowness and mining fatigue (freeze) to enemies. I'm pretty sure this is canon because frodo was freezed inside the barrow as I remember. They'd also make a noise when they freeze you similiar to the current whispering ambient, but the voice would be more similiar to the description in the books.

    Anti-farming stuff

    I had an idea that barrow-wights should be enable to pass trough walls, like the ender dragon (except not break any blocks of course) to stop farming them in the way of poking them to death from a closed space. The reason would also be to make gaining mithril more difficult. Not sure how canon this is however.

    Stats

    Barrow-wights would remain at 50 health and their current attack, but they will get 11 defence points. The wightbane modifier would enable a weapon to completely ignore these armour points.

    Visual

    The current black screen and fog things are scary, but I don't find the black screen thing quite that good yet. I'd say it would be better if your FOV and the blackness would constantly change during it, fading (black thing)/going normal for a moment (FOV), then agian taking up almost the entire screen (black thing)/going extreme (FOV). Barrow-wights could also get animated textures where their entire skin goes black for a moment, then starts turning greener agian.

    • "but rather a place most people want to avoid"

      I once went to the barrow downs, and I leaved almost instantly (dead). I throught I'd never enter those barrows again. I don't know about you guys, but I think it doesn't need to get any scarier.

    • People build mod farms there. I've gotten half a stack of mithril by AFKing all night.

      Allowing passing through blocks would prevent your model that uses quag. Also, how would they tell a hill from a wall?

    • Hmmmmm... Didn't think about that. Perhaps they could only pass trough 1-3 block thick walls, although then farmers would just build thicker walls. Now I am also thinking that this feature would cause the wights to sink underground. Perhaps teleporting to enemies and/or pulling them closer would work better?

    • perhaps they don't take suffocation damage, and when agrod they would be able to pass through walls. It wouldn't be perfect, but it would work.

      Barrow wights already do this when they hit the player...

    • They do? Never noticed that. Also I was suggesting that they put those debuffs on you from further away than just the hit range.

      True, but considering that, they should still drop mithril, its quite a reasonable chance, meaning you will likely get one mithril piece of armor/tools every like 100 barrow wights you kill

    • Nobody has ever said that their mithril drops will be disabled..?

      Sorry, I misinterpreted what you said.

    • It would also be sweet (and creepy at the same time) if they had speechbanks. Whispering things such as "Cold be heart and hand and bone..." or "You shall never leave..." or "There is no life in the void, only death..."
