Minecraft 1.16 Update
Make sure you read my regular Minecraft blog before you read this one.
Nether Wastes: The Nether Wastes is the old nether biome that was in 1.15. Here you can find Striders which you can put a saddle on and ride with a warped fungus on a stick.
Crimson Forest: In the Crimson Forest you can find the new Crimson wood. You can also find a lot of Piglins and Hoglins.
Warped Forest: In this biome, you can find the other new wood called Warped wood. You can also find a new light source block called Sahroomlight.
Soul Sand Valley: Here you can find a lot of ghasts and regular skeletons. It is a biome made of soul sand and soul soil. If you are traveling in this biome you probably want the enchantment called Soul Speed. If you have it and you are on soul sand you will be very fast.
A Basalt Delta is a whole biome made of Basalt. It is dangerous because there are a lot of tiny lava pools you can fall into. There are also a lot of Magma Cubes that can knock you into the lava.
Speedrunning is a very popular aspect of Minecraft. Speedrunning is where you try to achieve something in the game as fast as possible. The most popular type of Speedrunning is where you try and defeat the
Ender Dragon. The new 1.16 update has made Speedrunning a lot harder. The hardest part of Speedrunning is getting to the Stronghold (The place where you go to the End) and going to the End. To go there you need Eye of Enders which are made with Blaze Powder and Ender Pearls. The Nether update made it easier to get ender pearls, by trading gold with Piglins there is a chance you can get ender pearls. The Nether update made it a lot harder to get blaze rods (Blaze Rods make Blaze powder) because the only way to get Blaze Rods is by killing Blazes which only spawn in Nether FortressesNether Fortresses are extremely rare.
Nether Gold is very common in the Nether, each one drops a Gold Nugget which 9 Gold Nuggets in a crafting table make 1 Gold Ingot. You can use that Gold to trade with Piglins.
Ancient Debris is very rare if you mine 4 Ancient Debris and smelt it in a furnace it will turn into Netherite Scrap. Once you do that put the Netherite Scrap in a crafting table with 4 Gold Ingots it makes 1 Netherite Ingot. If
You open a Smithing Table and combine any diamond tool or piece of armour with a Netherite Ingot in will turn it from diamond to Netherite.
Piglins can spawn with either a Golden Sword or a Crossbow. They will only attack you if you are not wearing a piece of Gold Armour, But if you are wearing
Gold Armour they will not attack you.
You can give them Gold Ingots they will give you back any of the following:
Splash Potion of Fire Resistance
Potion of Fire Resistance
Iron Boots with Soul Speed III
Enchanted Book with Soul Speed III
Zombified Piglins are the exact same as Zombie Pigman, so if you hit one they all try and kill you.
Hoglins are like Nether Pigs. They drop Raw Porkchop but unlike pigs they attack you they fling you up into the air. If you place down a warped fungus they will run away.
If you lure a Hoglin through a Nether Portal and into the Overworld it will turn into a Zoglin. It’s the exact same thing as a Hoglin except it looks zombified.
You can find Striders in the middle of lava pools. If you can get to one you can put a saddle on it and ride it. Like a pig, you need something to steer it but instead of using a carrot on a stick, you use a Warped Fungus on a Stick.
