Pigmen Legion:

---Pigmen Legion---
Army of truly ancient race (at least 10 versions!), now devolved into uncivilised piglins, returned for rampage! Pigmen Legion is an event available right after Wither has been defeated. It can be summoned by building a Nether Reactor ( with a beacon instead of core and right-clicking on beacon with Core Shard that drops from Wither. During event, different pigmen will appear around reactor. Invasion can be ended either by killing 60 pigmen or right-clicking the Core Shard (this has a cooldown).


Pigman Breaker - fast and furious warrior wielding 2 netherite axes at one time! It jumps on it's target, leaving slow or unarmored players no chance. It's role in an event is to rush player towards heavier enemies and dealing fair damage.
Pigman Chief - great warrior with heavy mace to overcome target's defence. It approaches it's target, fearsome and resolute. Due to it's big authority among pigmen, it's rage causes other forces to perform deadlier attacks. It's role to deal massive damage to player and support Pigmen Breakers.
Pigman Protector - well-armored unit equipped with 4 shields. Slow and not so dangerous in attack, Protector serves as a tank for absorbing a lot of damage. When it is nearby, Pigmen Breakers and Chiefs won't be so aggressive, but Pygromancers will feel themselves safe and will focus on attacks.
Pygromancer - mage incinerating it's enemies with fire of Nether. It can be considered as a heart of the Legion due to it's role in protecting other warriors from players and golems: iron golems melts as it approaches and snow golems just evaporates on it's sight. However, pillagers and it's target too, especially evokers. (I guess it is some kind of rivalry between those two.) The most common attack of Pygromancer is shooting fireballs to target, but besides it, far more dangerious stuff can be done.
Borov - ancestor of hoglin, even angrier and tougher, it rushes it's way through dimensions enemies with his body covered in netherite and blackstone armor. Due to it's massive body, colossal weight and high speed, it is the most dangerious subjest of Pigmen Legion. But when it doesn't rush in, it serves as a good mount for Pigmen Vexillaries, making them harder to kill.
Pigmen Vexilarry - pigmen with a banner, proclaiming power of the Legion. Pigmen Vexillaries are not so dangerious but for sure the most annoying pigmen that buffs other warriors around him.


Unburned - final boss of the Pyromancer mod. Leader of the pyroents tribe, trapped in the overworld after the war in the Nether. Unburned can be summoned by right-clicking the desert sand with a fractal cucumber - strange vegetable found in warped forests.

Unburned chases player and attacks in melee, performing dashes from time to time. He can jump to create a powerful shockwave upon landing (this attack counters if you time your jump right when Unbruned lands, so in the moment he touches the grorund, you are in the air) and summon scorching souls chase the player and explode on contact. Upon losing 50% health, Unburned's second phase begins. He emits fire particles, and all attacks are faster. Jump attack now destroys blocks and sets everything on fire in a large radius. Unburned gains new attack - summoning pyronadoes that suck the player in and incinerate.

Upon defeat, Unburned drops 16 molten pyrowood, smoldering twig and a broken evil blade.



Cinnabar - ore found in Nether Wastes biome. Rarely exposed to air, lays mostly 3-4 blocks below the surface and emits red vapors that go through blocks. Cinnabar ore drops cinnabar chunks that can be smelted into mercury drops, useful material. Mercury items: Thermometer that changes it's sprite based on temperature of the biome you are in. Bottle of Vapors - throwable weapon, releases a cloud of toxic vapor on impact which inflict Wither effect on mobs. Hogtrap - trap block, on contact destroys itself and applies Slowness, Blindness and Wither to mob that has stepped on it. Using blue ice block and 8 mercury drops, you can craft Frozen Mercury block that has half of ice block's slippery. This block can polished or crafted with stone bricks to make mercury bricks and all their variations like slabs, walls, stairs, chiselled and cracked bricks.

Brimstone - ore that generates in basalt in Basalt Deltas biome. When stepped on or breaked it inflicts Brimflame effect, increasing damage taken from fire, making fire lasts longer and damaging player when in water. Brimstone ore can be smelted into brimstone. for now it's only use as an ammo for slingshot, applying brimflame debuff on hitted mobs. Nitropowder is a highly explosive material made from brimstone, gunpowder and ghast tears. When right-clicked on a block, it created a powerful explosion. Nitropowder is used to craft a Firelink sword - it burns nearby arrows on swing and can teleport you to set campfire. Right click on a campfire to remember it, then Shift+Right click to teleport to it. Brimstone can be crafted with nether brick blocks to make brimstone bricks, a yellow variant of nether brick blocks.

Netherite shard - item that rarely drops from pigmen in the Pigmen Legion event. Can be used to upgrade netherite scrap into netherite ingot on a smithing table.

Molten pyrowood - material that drops from Unburned. Used to craft endgame weapons and armor.



Maradeur's armor - crafted from hoglin hide. Has low durability, suffers from fire, but has a small chance to deflect projectiles.

Netherite mask - crafted by combining netherite helmet with a netherite shard. Has less defence that netherite helmet, but in full netherite set prevents burning and reduces fire damage.

Pyromancer's armor - crafted from molten pyrowood that drops from Unburned. It has protection level of iron, but offers a variety of offensive bonuses.
Set bonus: 33% chance to not consume bombsacks, weapons with Fire Aspect inflict brimflame debuff, all artifacts' blaze cost is reduced by 1, taking more than 2,5 hearts (5hp) of daage in one hit summons friendly blazing soul.


Artifacts are magical fire weapons. To use them, put charged blazing journal in the offhand and the artifact in the main hand. Artifacts consume journal's charges as mana in order to work.
