Lets explore Minecraft 1.21

The latest snapshot, 23w45a, takes you on a thrilling journey underground, introducing a new dimension to your exploration experience – Trial Chambers. Get ready for combat, exploration, and encounters with the mischievous Breeze! 🐗

Trial Chambers

Trial Chambers are hidden beneath the Overworld's surface, promising challenging combat scenarios and rewarding exploration. Crafted from a variety of Copper and Tuff blocks, Trial Chambers come in different sizes, making each encounter a unique experience.

What’s new?

  • Every Trial Chamber offers a unique layout with traps, reward chests, and various combat spaces. Explore the Deepslate layer to discover these chambers during the mid-game.
  • Navigate your trials with the help of supply chests scattered between different rooms. Reward chests, guarded by challenges, offer high-level enchanted books and equipment.
  • Encounter different Trial Spawners with melee, small melee, or ranged categories. From Zombies and Spiders to Strays and Skeletons, each Trial Chamber's mobs are randomized, providing diverse challenges.
  • Some Trial Spawners in unique rooms will introduce the elusive Breeze, a hostile mob that adds chaos to combat with its wind charge projectiles and disruptive abilities.

What are Trial Spawners?

Trial Spawners are a new variant of Monster Spawners designed to inject rewards upon completion. These spawners adapt to multiplayer challenges, increasing in difficulty with each new player detected nearby.

  • Unlike normal spawners, Trial Spawners spawn a limited number of mobs proportional to the challenge level.
  • Upon defeating all mobs, Trial Spawners eject rewards corresponding to the challenge level before entering a 30-minute cooldown.
  • Trial Spawners cannot be crafted or obtained in Survival mode; instead, they are found naturally placed throughout Trial Chambers.

Okay, but what about the Breeze Mob? 🐗

Introducing the Breeze, an experimental hostile mob found exclusively in Trial Chambers. This cunning adversary leaps around its target, shooting volatile wind energy and creating wind bursts that impact the environment.

What are its abilities?

  • Leaps around the target, covering long distances.
  • Shoots wind charge projectiles with small damage upon impact.
  • Wind bursts activate certain blocks, flip doors, press buttons, and more.
  • Wind bursts do not affect Iron Doors, Trapdoors, or blocks held in position by a Redstone signal.

The snapshot introduces several technical changes, including a new Data Pack version (24) and Resource Pack version (21). The experimental Breeze mob, Trial Spawner block, and increased Jigsaw structure variable size are among the highlighted additions.
