What is a Pillager Outpost?

A Pillager Outpost is the base for Pillagers. You can find many of these mobs here, even a Pillager Captain. It functions as a watchtower and has a total of four levels. There is various loot you can find here, including Illiger Banners.

Make sure you are properly equipped before you approach one of these. The Pillagers here can make short work of you if you do not have any armor or a shield. Once you defeat the Pillager Captain, you will acquire the Bad Omen effect. This can be used to start a Pillager Raid upon entering a Village.
