The Great Bear can be found near its den in the forest. It is a large grizzly bear that walks at an above average speed, and runs fast in the forest, but has incredibly low stamina, although it regains stamina fairly quickly. When it runs, it pounces forwards, potentially killing some greedlings or wildlife directly ahead of it. The Great Bear can also safely kill greedlings that are fleeing with stolen coins, tools or weapons. Although only occasionally a grass eater in real life, this mount also eats grass to regain stamina. Charging past citizens does not injure them.
This mount is unlocked on the Fourth Island.
Attacking with the Great Bear
The Great Bear only attacks while running, and any valid target will be attacked. Stamina is used for running, but extra stamina is used when an attack is successful. The Great Bear’s attack is actually an AOE (area of effect), meaning that it will land its attack on everything in range. This is different from an archer’s arrow, which only hits a single target. A well-fed bear is easily able to destroy a greedling horde in the first few days, giving monarchs a massive advantage in early exploring. The Great Bear is also an excellent bunny killer, especially if your archers are unavailable (all claimed by towers, knights, or if you are in an area the archers do not patrol). Deer are also easy prey, but take two attacks to bring down. The Great Bear can also serve as a wall defender. Careful positioning and timing will allow a monarch to attack from behind the wall into a greedling mass and then immediately retreat. Depending on timing, it’s possible to land a AOE attack on a mass of greedlings without taking any damage.
