Found through out the Forest Biome.
The body of the wild boar is compact; the head is large, the legs relatively short. The fur consists of stiff bristles and usually finer fur. The colour is brown. During winter the fur is much more dense. Boars cannot jump.
Boars are one of the first enemies players will face in the game, and for the inexperienced, are very annoying to deal with due to their relatively high health pool and initially hard-to-predict attack.
Boars will be aggro'd only if you are on the same horizontal level as them and are within their aggro radius. Jumping into this aggro radius will also cause the boar to initiate his attack. However, if you are outside of this aggro radius (such as by standing on a higher or lower level than the boar), the boar will not attack.
The boar's only attack is to charge at the player blindly, ignoring anything in its way, for a set distance before stopping for a few seconds. While this seems simple enough, there are two mechanics to remember when dealing with boars. First, the distance charged is the boar's aggro range - therefore, if you just barely aggro'd a boar (such as by walking forward too much), backing up will mean the boar will no longer be able to reach you. Second, boars will not stop after hitting walls, but instead bounce off of them. The distance that a boar bounces off a wall is the same distance it would have traveled if the wall was not there.
To kill boars, simply jump over them as they charge towards you, then walk towards them and hit them while they are recovering. More experienced players that have a feel for where the boar will stop can move towards the area the boar will stop while in midair, allowing them to get a faster kill.
A more dangerous but efficient way to kill boars is to time your melee attack such that it will hit the boar as it comes within your attack range, then jump immediately after. Remember that boars will continue charging even if you have hit them, making jumping necessary.
