Vindictus Monsters – Wood Man
The Wood Man are common creatures that are essentially training dummies, being made from several logs affixed together, then empowered by some magic to stand upright, wield a weapon and attack with a melee weapon. For all intents and purposes, these creatures count as Gnolls, behaving in a similar manner as well. These guys are a rather pushover, being easily pummeled into the ground, while their slow attacks are easy to dodge by recognizing the crouching stance the Wood Man enters as it is about to strike.
Vindictus Monsters – Wood Man Ranger
The Wood Man Ranger is a variation of the regular Wood Man, equipped with a bow and arrows instead of the maces wielded by the Wood Man. You will only find two of these enemies within Mercenary Training Site, during the final boss battle with Wood Man Guard. Their range makes them a limited threat, even though they have a slow attack speed. Try to take the rangers out quickly before focusing on the boss.
The Wood Man and Wood Man Ranger is found within the Perilous Ruins, Mercenary Training Site, and can drop one of the following items:
Wooden Plank – Plank of wood used in crafting various items, particularly weapons.
Empty Bottle – Empty bottle used to hold liquid that is used for crafting potions.
Spear – Secondary weapon that can be used as a throwing weapon, chucking them long distances to impale your enemies. Great fun to use.
