Minecraft 1.19 Snapshots or at least the experimental version has been released! Just when we thought it would take some time to get a taste of Minecraft 1.19 since the 1.18.1 version was just available in the launcher.
It came as a big surprise to everyone when it was officially announced by Mojang through their website that the experimental version is now playable for beta testing.
As of now you can't see it in the launcher even when you try to find it under snapshots. However in this article you will learn how to download it, install it and play with it.
"I can only be referring to the warden, who has been released into Minecraft in what could be the most terrifying experimental Java snapshot to date. Do you want to mirror my foolishness unquestionable bravery? Of course you do"
Ever since the Warden was announced to be one of the new mobs in Minecraft players have gone hysterical. Plenty of Minecraft gamers were excited to combat this monstrosity in the ancient city.
People got so excited that there were Minecraft mods created to add the specific mob in the game.
It was first announced to get released in the second part of the Caves and Cliffs update however some development issues due to the more complex dynamics of this mob caused some delay in it's release.
Hence, the Warden was then mentioned to get a later release together with the Wild Update. But, lucky for all of us we can now get to see this creature in action through the experimental version of the Minecraft 1.19 Snapshots.
This mob is not given vision however it is able to hear your movements and actions. This is why you need to sneak pass it without setting off one of it's sculk shriekers.
One wrong move and this monster will quickly alert the Warden to obliterate you into oblivion. Another block that you should be worried about is the sculk sensor as it will also alert the Warden.
However, instead of ringing around like an alarm it works like a laser sensor which emit redstone signals to warn the Warden of any intruders.
When you play with this snapshot and try to lurk in the deep dark biomes make sure to be quiet, silent and swift when making your way to get some valuable ores.
"Dear reader, I am writing to you from the safe shelter that my bed provides. No, I am not snuggly nestled under my covers with a piping hot cup of tea in hand. I am cowering beneath the springs in a space usually reserved for monsters and dust bunnies, two fiends who pale in comparison to the character I just came face to face with."
The Terrifying Snapshot
Right after the experimental version of Minecraft 1.19 snapshot was announced and released hundreds of thousands of players were swift in downloading it into their devices.
Plenty have installed it in their Java version of the game and used the locate command line to quickly find and locate the nearest deep dark biome and ancient city to get a change to face this formidable foe.
After getting the chance to see this beast most players were quick to jump to social media and label this snapshot as "The Terrifying Snapshot" due to the fact that it felt like a horror game when the Warden start chasing you around.
Tread Lightly in the Deep Dark Biomes
It was originally announced on October of 2021 that the Deep Dark Biomes will be one of the major highlights of The Wild update. It is one of the latest additions of the game. Within this region you will be able to find the Ancient Cities.
This biome is very dark and creepy. All the light within it's region is dimmed making it look like one of the horror games that you don't even play with.
It's floor is covered in Sculk which is green and moldy looking stones ranging from the start of the region up to it's end.
Sometimes you even get to see parts of this Biome being submerged under water adding an even more eerie vibe to it adding to Minecraft 1.19 snapshot's repertoire as the terrifying snapshot.
Beware of the Ancient City
From the first time you get to see this structure you will be amazed to see how well it's architecture is designed. It looks sort of like an abandoned medieval castle.
As you dig even deeper through it you will eventually notice more and more sculk. Eventually you will stumble upon one of the sculk sensors or sculk shriekers.
If you see a sculk sensor the best way to keep your self safe is to stay away from it and all of it's redstone connections to avoid waking up a slumbering Warden.
On the other hand if you see sculk shriekers, DO NOT approach it nor make too much noise and vibrations through mining or running. You will need to press the sneak button as you pass by it without striking your weapon.
If all else fails and you happen to alert any of the sculk detector then be ready to face the Warden or run for your life!
"It is still a work in progress, and nothing – including the structures and the warden – are in their final form."
