How does it work or how do you hire a bodyguard?
Everything is very simple! As well as with other mobs with them you need a certain approach, namely, first, the player needs to tame them. To do this, the player needs to use bread or iron ingots. Use one or the other, get close to the bodyguard, and press the Tame button.
If the taming is successful, you will see the displayed hearts. After that, your bodyguard will always be with you, dressed in a beautiful black suit, black sunglasses, and a special ID card.
In order for your bodyguard to stand still or sit down, you must press and hold the bodyguard using the sit or stand button. As mentioned above, players can place bodyguards in any place convenient for you, be it a backyard, office, cafe, or any other place.
If after the battle their health points have dropped noticeably, after the battle they themselves drink a health potion.
Wherever you go, they will always be by your side.
Your bodyguards have good fighting skills and cannot be killed just like that, as they are strong enough and have good speed. Please note that all neutral mobs will attack the player if the mobs were attacked first.
Another feature of the add-on is the fact that players can give a name to their bodyguard for this, just use the anvil and nametag.
