A Beaver is a non-aggressive Creature which can be found most commonly in The Shallows, on Beaches or in the Marshland biome.
Beavers are non-aggressive so unless provoked Beavers will not attack. Keep in mind Beavers CAN Swim. Bite is a Beaver's main attack and each time it lands it will stack Bleed. Beavers will also occasionally turn around to use Tail Slash which, if it connects, will briefly cause you to be Stunned and adds a moderate amount of Reel. When a Beaver's prey is too far away it may initiate a Whirling Dance of Doom where it spins around out of control. The Whirling Dance of Doom will cause other nearby Beavers to also start spinning and attack you as well. When fighting a Beaver it is best to stay up close, or run away when the Whirling Dance of Doom begins and wait for it to end. After the Whirling Dance of Doom ends a Beaver will become dizzy and momentarily Stunned. Beavers are immune to Venom Darts.
