Krampus is a new mob that appeared in the Naughty & Nice update, Dec. 11, 2012. Krampus is a demon-like creature, based off the Krampus of Lore which steals naughty kids during the night, presumably to eat them. He will steal all the contents of your chests, as well as destroy the chests as well. He has 200 hitpoints, twice as much as a Firehound. He also does 50 damage per hit. He won't go for chests as long as you are within 6 meters from them. He has his own 'inventory', meaning anything he takes you will not lose as long as you are able to kill him. If Krampus doesn't have anything to steal he will crawl into his own bag and disappear! Krampus can be put to sleep using darts. A good way to defend against him is by having multiple Bee Mines near your chests, or a possible solution could be to just leave all your items on the ground, as they do not despawn and it does not seem like he goes for them.
Chances of Spawning
The possibility of Krampii spawning is dependent on how "naughty" you are and the number of days you've survived. Upon the first day the player is given a threshold of 30 in which they can be "naughty". This threshold is decreased by killing innocent mobs and once this threshold hits zero; one or more Krampus will spawn.
Every 60 seconds that you don't perform a naughty action your threshold will increase by one. This means you can prevent the Krampus from spawning whilst still being a little naughty from time to time.
|Killing a Pig that isn't a Werepig.||3|
|Killing a Beefalo.||4|
|Killing a Crow.||1|
|Killing a Redbird.||2|
|Killing a Smallbird.||6|
|Killing a Butterfly.||1|
|Killing a Rabbit.||1|
|Killing a Tallbird.||2|
Everytime you commit a "naughty" action a sound plays, depending on how many actions you have left a different sound will be played. Anything 15 or above will play "beenbad_lvl1", 5-15 "beenbad_lvl2" and anything under 5 "beenbad_lvl3".
The number of Krampii spawned and your actions left is also determined on your days survived and a little luck.
