The Worker is a Pig Trader Mob exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. Found in the Pig Village, he buys refined items such as Boards, Ropes or Cut Stone for two Oincs.

If a nearby town building is damaged, such as being burned, a Worker will come to repair it using their Hammer.

Brain.png Behavior

One Worker may spawn from a Town House, and will wander randomly around their house and eat any edible items left on the ground, including Pig Skin. Every so often they will drop one Manure where they are standing, and if the player picks up that manure the Worker will approach them and give them one Oinc, along with an accompanying Quote.

Whenever there is a hostile mob nearby, or a player targets them or another Pig Trader or Royal Guard near them, they will enter a panicked state. They will begin to move around semi-randomly in a direction away from the aggressor.

They will attempt to return to their house in the evening, and if they cannot reach their house or their house is destroyed they will seek the nearest light source and stand next to it until night, when they will sleep on the ground.

Workers may spawn when buildings take damage if there is not already a Worker present, appearing just off screen before walking towards the damaged structure to repair it. After they have spawned they act as normal Pig Traders, although without a Town House to return to.

When a Worker Pigman dies before fixing the broken structure it was supposed to, a new Worker will spawn after a while and but not instantly. Worker pigman does not spawn to repair player built structures.
