Archer Knight Mercenary Mercenary Archer Mage Before you are able to spawn an archer or a knight you must first craft a block for them to spawn on.
This makes him great to place on something high to arch oncoming enemies.
The knight will move around and attack all unfriendlies.
The mercenary takes a bit more, you will need to go around your world to find a Mercenary post and hire him. You hire him by giving him a gold ingot. He has a right click option so that he can either follow you and fight for you, or stay and wait.
The mercenary Archer, he is just like the other Mercenary except he uses a bow.
The mage can be spawned if you have a medallion and an enemy mage spawner.The mage will set your enemies on fire and they are also able to strike them with lightning.
To create a mage spawner you will need a Medalion.
The Medallion is an item found inside enemy castles. All of your friendly mobs, or defenders will follow you if you hold it. Like animals following wheat, carrots, or seeds.
