What Is Being Added To Minecraft in 1.19?

There are plenty of awesome things being added to Minecraft in this patch. They are adding a couple of new biomes. These biomes are called the deep dark biome and mangrove swamp biomes and Ancient Cities.


They are adding fun new features like froglights, which are pearlescent lights dropped by frogs. There are now also new wood types, such as mangrove logs. You can now build with mud! Mud can be crafted into mud bricks, mud walls, and more.

There are also new mobs and enemies that players can look out for! There are now wardens and sculk shriekers. If there are too many sculk shriekers, then the wardens will come out of the woodwork. This is the first fully blind mob in the game. It’s a very strong mob that does 32 damage, meaning players wearing full netherite armour will be brought down from full health to 7 health points. The wardens have 500 health points.

Out of the friendly mobs they’ve added to the game, they’ve added frogs, tadpoles and allays. You can now also ride in a boat with a chest in the back.
