The Warden is a much-anticipated enemy in Minecraft and many players can’t wait to encounter this hostile mob while playing. But is the Warden in Minecraft 1.18? If yes, where to find and how to spawn this mob? What are the special characteristics of The Warden? Get all your answers here.
How to Spawn the Warden in Minecraft 1.18?
Unfortunately, players will have to wait a bit longer to get the Warden in Minecraft because this mob won’t be available in update 1.18 (Caves and Cliffs part 2). This is because the scope of work and time constraints for 1.18 grew and the devs decided that it is best to postpone The Warden to the next update. Thankfully, it has not been completely removed and only postponed, which is a relief.
When is the Warden Mob coming to Minecraft?
You will encounter The Warden in the Minecraft 1.19 The Wild update which is coming in 2022. What’s the exact release date of The Wild? It has not been released yet. It is not known if it will release in mid or late 2022, so all we can do is wait for an update from the developers.
Where to Find the Warden?
In The Wild (Minecraft 1.19), players can find The Warden in the deep underground areas/caves in the Deep Dark biome. Since the area will be dark, it can find you out of nowhere and you have to be pretty alert. When it’s nearby, the light sources around will flicker which will signal its presence to you.
Who is The Warden?
The Warden Mob is a blind mob (the first of its kind) and it will use sculk-like sensors to “sense” the player’s vibrations. So, you will need new techniques and strategy to fight this enemy which is pretty powerful. Mostly, though, you are not supposed to fight it, it’s just there to scare the bejeezus out of you. That’s because it is so OP, that it can kill you even if you are wearing netherite armor. Anything less, and you will die in one attack. But, if you decide to attack it, it will know you’re there and lock onto you and won’t leave even if you try to make other sounds. It also gets faster at this point. And lastly, the more you attack, the more powerful it gets.
Yikes. If the devs’ goal was to scare players, they have succeeded.
You can choose to sneak around the Warden or use arrows or other projectiles to confuse it. If your projectile has a sound attached to it, then the Warden will gravitate towards it. So, the best strategy to escape the Warden mob in Minecraft is to use snowballs or shoot arrows away from you, which will make it go towards that location and then you need to run in the opposite direction to save your life.
Hopefully, that has cleared all the doubts in your mind about how to spawn Warden in Minecraft 1.18 and more. For more information on everything new in Minecraft 1.18, check out our guides on Gamer Tweak!
